Necas is going to probably be a game-time decision, but knowing Rod Brind’amour and how he takes care of his players, I doubt we will be seeing him suit up. Dougie Hamilton skated a bit yesterday, but will absolutely not be suiting up. The good news is that there is a chance he might show up later in the series.
This is the start of a historic playoff experience. If the Carolina Hurricanes can stick to these keys, and put everything they have out on the ice, they have a chance of getting past the Rangers and starting what may truly be a deep playoff Cinderella run.
This is going to be a nitty-gritty game. Expect it to be physical and expect plenty of penalties. At the end that will give the Carolina Hurricanes the upper hand and it may do so earlier rather than later in the game. That will translate to better overall play from the Canes and a game one victory against the New York Rangers.
