Hurricanes Vs. Lightning Best Of Four Series 2/20-2/25


Recommended Posts

Game One:

The Carolina Hurricanes close out a back-to-back set by hosting the Tampa Bay Lightning, the first of four consecutive match-ups against the defending Stanley Cup champions.


The Match-Up

Tampa Bay Lightning (10-3-1, 21 points) vs. Carolina Hurricanes (11-3-1, 23 points)

Saturday, Feb. 20, 7 p.m.

Watch: FOX Sports Carolinas, FOX Sports GO

The Opposition

Last five games: 3-2-0, 6 points
On the road: 4-2-1, 9 points
CAR vs. TB: 1-0-0
Leading scorer: Brayden Point, 16 points (6g, 10a) in 14 games

A historic winter storm in Dallas postponed the Lightning's two-game set with the Stars, a rematch of the 2020 Stanley Cup Final, that was supposed to take place on Thursday and Saturday. The Bolts have been idle since Monday, when they lost their second of three games to the Florida Panthers, prompting the schedule shuffle that now brings them to Raleigh for the beginning of a four-game set against the Canes.

Ned is gonna face a real test tonight opening the series at home vs. the lightning. Who are hungry for a win after their loss to Florida and coming off basically 5 days rest due to the winter storm in Texas.

In the meantime...anyone watching the Outdoor game at Lake Tahoe right now? Mid day sun, shadows on the ice...I wonder how much of an impact the glare and shadows have on the game play...

We were suppose to have an outdoor game 😭

Glare aside for the players as a fan its absolutely gorgeous. I love outdoor ice and that setting is pristine.

Yea. I was really excited when they announced this. Was 100% going to be there, on Center Ice. I am hoping we get resume these in a 2022, and I hope we can fill that stadium.

And right on queue...they talk about the sunlight. I'd much rather be playing after the sun goes down in Carter-Finley...

Oof, its on hold now and they are waiting to figure out if they can play later or tomorrow morning to finish the game. Covering the ice up now. Sun got hot and that ice turned to slush.

I didn't realize they had such along layoff. Hopefully it takes the a while to knock the rust off.

Although I wonder if the Fluery/Gardiner switch has something to do with Canada's favourite illegitimate son starting in net tonight?

Get well soon Turbo.

Sounds like it's just rest for The Gardener.

I hope so, I think Gardiner has been one of our best Defensive players in general so far, Resting him here though is suspect. Fleury and Bean, they are both going to have to step it up. Not sure what Rod's methodology is here.

Also Paquette on the wing, interesting. Guess we don't trust Lorentz enough on the alt yet.
