The Carolina Hurricanes take on the Bruins in game one tonight
The Carolina Hurricanes are going into tonight looking to continue a winning streak that began last week. Here are the Three keys to beating Boston in Game one.
Didn’t the playoffs start last week? Regardless, tonight is the first game of the 2020 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs with the first round opponent being the same Boston Bruins who bounced the Carolina Hurricanes from the Eastern Conference Finals last year. This time, the Canes will be looking for some serious payback.
But to get that payback, the Carolina Hurricanes have to be mentally and physically prepared for some more bubble hockey against a team that is nowhere near the pushovers the New York Rangers were.
But this is a new season and these are not the same Carolina Hurricanes that saw themselves get swept to prematurely end a magical season. No, this is a much better Carolina Hurricanes team that is here to respond in force and send the Bruins packing.
But to do that they will have to dig deep on the ice and within themselves to continue to play the level of hockey that sent the Rangers well on their way out of the bubble in only four days. That starts with these three keys.
