Panthers @ Hurricanes Game Thread 3/7


Recommended Posts

An early Sunday evening puck drop pits the Carolina Hurricanes against the Florida Panthers for the third time in nine days.


The Match-Up

Florida Panthers (15-4-4, 34 points) vs. Carolina Hurricanes (16-6-1, 33 points)

Sunday, March 7, 5 p.m.

Watch: FOX Sports Carolinas, FOX Sports GO

Listen: 99.9 FM The Fan, Hurricanes.com/Listen, Hurricanes app

5: Jake Gardiner has missed the Canes' last five games with an upper-body concern, but he practiced again with the team on Saturday. According to Brind'Amour, Gardiner "kind of gave us the thumbs up that he was 100 percent. He's an option for us tomorrow, probably game-time on that one."

The Opposition

Last five games: 3-0-2, 8 points
On the road: 8-1-1, 16 points
CAR vs. FLA: 2-0-1
Leading scorer: Jonathan Huberdeau, 28 points (10g, 18a) in 23 games

The Panthers are riding a five-game point streak (3-0-2) after consecutive victories in Nashville. Led by a hat trick from Noel Acciari, Florida completed its two-game sweep of the Predators with a 6-2 win on Saturday afternoon.

Oops can't edit anymore but just had the thought, This was suppose to be Mrazek's target game to be back? No mention of that in the articles. Wonder if he had a set back or if the date was just on the optimistic side. 

Edit: found an update from yesterday I missed.

    • Tepper could certainly do that without worrying about the cost, but I believe it would be at least a season too soon.  Especially, for an owner that kept Rivera and Hurney around as long as he did.  I see Rhule getting 3 seasons minimum before Tepper begins to get impatient. Darnold was a clearance aisle special in comparison to what some teams are willing to give up for a franchise QB.  If Sam crashes and burns, Rhule will likely get at least one more bite of the apple before being dispatched by Dave.  
    • I'm one to give us a reset on the back to back winning season narrative.  This is a new regime with a new owner.  The days of Fox and Rivera are gone and so should the whining about back to back winning seasons. If Rhule and Co. come out and have a winning season I won't be crying about waiting until 2023 for another winning season.  I believe we'll continue that success. If we start 4-0 It will give this team some great confidence for the rest of the season.   IMO it all lies on our O-Line and Darnold.  If the O-line gels together and Darnold limits the mistakes we'll score enough points to win.   Our defense is going to keep us in games and might even win one or two. 
    • I happen to enjoy listening to 89.  His takes are usually pretty brutal but accurate.  I think this is a next step for him and he'll move into the booth full time.  Hopefully for the Panthers. He is and always will be a Panther.   He may have had some wounds from being let go and he exacted his revenge on us.  Quite brutally in fact. His heart has softened and he is where he belongs. He'll be our first drafted HOFer.
