Tonight the Carolina Hurricanes will get a chance at the normal start time at PNC Arena as the Canes host the Ottawa Senators. This is a game that Carolina needs to find a way to win because this Ottawa team is struggling. Two points and another tally in the win column is what the Carolina Hurricanes need from this game to ensure that they see continued success moving forward.
Carolina’s recent lack of scoring and issues with winning could very much come to an end tonight. Obviously, tonight won’t be an instant fix, but it could go a long way to ensuring that the team gets back into the habit of putting the puck into the goal rather than right at the goalie. We’ve been highly critical of the team’s offensive output recently because it hasn’t been good enough.
It’s a regular start time for the boys, and that means that it’s time for the Canes to settle back into the routine for this one 7 PM start time before they get thrown back to the west coast for another extended period of time. This is the normal start time, and the boys will need to be ready and aggressive from the getgo, unlike their start in Dallas during that 4-1 loss to the Stars.
Tonight, the Canes face a limping Senators team. With their season derailed by COVID, the Senators currently sit bottom of the NHL’s Atlantic division. This is the time for this talented Canes team to devour their opponent and show their class to the hockey world. We know that the Canes started the season like cup favorites, so now it’s time for the organization to once again return to the status of cup favorites.
