The Carolina Hurricanes find themselves on the second half of a back-to-back against a struggling Tampa Bay (12-8-3), but what will it take to rebound from consecutive losses?
The Carolina Hurricanes find themselves 15-10-1 after last night’s loss to the Nashville Predators, slipping them into fifth-place in the highly competitive Metropolitan division. With a quarter of the season complete, the Canes need to find a way to get back on the winning column or risk falling out of playoff contention.
The Tampa Bay Lightning are in a similar scenario, sitting fifth in the Atlantic Division after a record-tying season last year. As Sean Tierney of Charting Hockey has shown, Carolina is still an excellent team:
"“It was tough because I thought the start was perfect. We had two or three great looks. Didn’t get anything.”"
So how do the Carolina Hurricanes get back on track? Here are my three keys to securing two points in the Sunshine State tonight!
