The Carolina Hurricanes head to Toronto tonight to take on the Maple Leafs after a disappointing home loss to the New York Rangers. Here’s what the Canes need to do to get back on track.

Last night sucked, but today is a new day. The Carolina Hurricanes are going to have to regroup tonight in Toronto in a big way if they want to win tonight.

Tonight’s matchup is sure to be a crazy one; the Carolina Hurricanes are coming off a bad loss, and the Toronto Maple Leafs are coming off of two days of rest after shutting out the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-0. Yippee.

The last time these teams met, the Canes lost by a score of 8-6 in one of the most insane games of the season.

Hopefully tonight’s matchup is a little bit different than that one, and goes the other way. In any case, there are several things the Carolina Hurricanes need to get done if they hope to stop the skid before it happens and snatch a couple points away from Toronto.

Let’s dive in, shall we?
