Hurricanes at Blackhawks Predictions, Chatter, Game Thread

CHICAGO - The Carolina Hurricanes can extend their winning streak to six games when they rematch the Chicago Blackhawks to round out the first third of a six-game road swing.


The Match-Up

Carolina Hurricanes (6-1-0, 12 points) at Chicago Blackhawks (3-4-4, 10 points)

The Last Meeting

Jordan Staal recorded a pair of assists while Andrei Svechnikov and Vincent Trocheck each tallied their team-leading fifth goals of the season in a 3-3 regulation draw with the Chicago Blackhawks. Extra hockey was required for the third time in the Canes' last four games, and a shootout then decided the final score for the second game in a row. James Reimer turned aside all three shots he faced, while Svechnikov netted the winning goal in the third round of the shootout, marking the Canes' eighth straight shootout win.

I think the Canes are going to show better effort this game. Im looking specifically for a better performance from the covid crew. Although I will say that we may not get the W if Reimer doesn't start at goal.  Nedelkovic looked really flaky when he was needed for a stretch last year after the EBUG game against Toronto.

Also as a side note its a interesting day of games in the central division with the Preds vs Panthers and CBJ vs Dallas.

Go Canes!

Ya, I'm interested to see how Rod shakes up the lines if at all since the slow start from the COVID crew.

We're gonna need our defence to protect Ned tonight. Luckily we have one of the best in the league.

Nevermind. Sounds like Reims is gonna start again tonight.

I really hope this is more about RBA's confidence in Reimer and less about Ned's readiness. Lorentz appears to be active with Geekie scratched.
