Game 6: Carolina Hurricanes (2-3) vs. Ottawa Senators (5-1-1)
Posted 01 February 2013 - 12:23 PM
Ottawa is still a great team and actually the best team in the NHL's Eastern Conference with the hottest goal tender in hockey right now in Craig Anderson. This test will truly tell the Canes where they stand among the NHL's finest.
I advise you not to look at the standings unless you have to because the Canes are currently really close to the bottom, however we have played the least amount of games in the NHL. Back to back wins against the Senstors and Flyers would put us right back in the drivers seat.
News and Notes
Dan Ellis gets the start in net tonight.
Justin Faulk is back in the line up tonight.
Joe Corvo is also in the lineup tonight.
