Numbers to Know
20-4-2: In his last 28 regular-season games with the Canes, James Reimer has posted a 20-4-2 record with a 2.71 goals-against average, .911 save percentage and three shutouts.
2-1-0: Tonight's game closes out the Canes' fourth of now nine back-to-back games this season. The team is 2-1-0 in the second game.
Here is the projected lineup for the Hurricanes.
Still don't get why everyone is hot on bean after the last two games. Should be Gardiner and Fleury. Curious if Rod blends the lines a little more or goes back to this basic setup tonight. Also really wish we had TT at this point. Don't exactly know NHL concussion rules but we likely could be down him until at least next Thursday if he doesn't travel separate of the team.
