Tonight, the Carolina Hurricanes face a foe that hasn’t fought in almost 3 years. With the St Louis Blues in town, the Canes are on the second half of a back-to-back and now, need two points to move clear at the top of the division again. It’s a tough task to ask the Carolina Hurricanes to dominate the Blues and walk away with two points having played last night, but that’s the task at hand.
St Louis comes into this game as one of the premier teams in the National Hockey League. With an 8-2-2 record, St Louis is one of the best in the Central division, and they look to come into Carolina and dispatch a Carolina Hurricanes team that is tired and depleted. It’s a very difficult task for the Hurricanes, but they made this difficult for themselves with a loss last night.
For Carolina, it’s simple. Winning this game builds a strong base before the team goes out to the west coast and continues their great start to the season. This is their last game at PNC Arena for a while, so we better get used to looking at the white road jerseys as they go away for a long time. It’s not going to be an easy road trip for the team, so the team needs points here soon.
So, how can the Carolina Hurricanes get back in the win column and get their season back on the right path? Well, that’s what we’re here to talk about. So as the Carolina Hurricanes take on the St Louis Blues tonight at PNC Arena in Raleigh, here are your three keys to the game with the team needing to get back to winning ways after a tough loss last night.
