Stadium Series

Yall forgot. Shame on yall. How can you forget the fact that one of the greatest games to be played by the Carolina Hurricanes in 2021 will happen outside and across the street?

The Stadium Series game still hasn’t been given its opponent for the 2021 matchup, but chances are it will be the Pittsburgh Penguins with the way that John Forslund and others within the organization have spoken about the game.

Now the Penguins have fans that travel well and it would fill Carter-Finley with a bit too much yellow for my comfort, but to beat Sidney Crosby and the Penguins on one of the largest outdoor stages in the league and on National Television would be well worth the ticket.

Personally I think that Tampa would be a much more interesting opponent. A battle of the elements, BOLTS vs CANES. Which force of nature is more powerful?!

Regardless of the opposition, let’s all agree that the Stadium Series will be a highlight of next season. It will be a much-anticipated event across all of the southeastern United States and will help put the Carolina Hurricanes on the map.

Now imagine if it snowed that day? Canadians would be extremely confused.

So there you have it folks, three really good reasons to look forward to 2021, outside of the fact that 2020 has been so horrible, that we might as well strike it from the history books and tell our grandkids that we just skipped from 2019 to 2021 for uh… math reasons.
