The Carolina Hurricanes have quite a bit to look forward to this season.

The schedule for the 2021 NHL Season has been set, and the Carolina Hurricanes are scheduled for what should be more than a few pretty electrifying series.

The 2021 NHL Season scheduled has been released for a few days now, and we all know by now what the Carolina Hurricanes are in store for: a likely third consecutive playoff berth for the first time in franchise history (knock on wood), as well as the chance to establish a geographic rivalry with a team that is normally in a completely different Conference, let alone a completely different Division.

Before we get into the month-by-month breakdown, I’d like to rehash what we know about the new ‘Central Division’ the Carolina Hurricanes find themselves in, just as a refresher.

The teams in this new Central Division are, in no particular order, the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Carolina Hurricanes, the Dallas Stars, the Nashville Predators, the Chicago Blackhawks, the Florida Panthers, the Columbus Blue Jackets, and the Detroit Red Wings. The top four teams from each division will make the playoffs and will be seeded like normal (1 seed vs. 4 seed, 2 seed vs. 3 seed) for Round 1.

The Carolina Hurricanes should, at the very least, finish in the Top 3 of the teams listed, barring anything ridiculous happening. Let’s take a look at the road for them to get there from January through May.
