Predators @ Hurricanes 3/9-3/11


Recommended Posts

"Winners of five games in a row, the Carolina Hurricanes begin a two-game set against the Nashville Predators.


The Match-Up

Nashville Predators (11-14-0, 22 points) vs. Carolina Hurricanes (17-6-1, 35 points)

Tuesday, March 9, 7 p.m.

Watch: FOX Sports Carolinas, FOX Sports GO

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

35: The Canes have amassed their best record (17-6-1) and most points (35) through 24 games in franchise history.

9: The Canes have won nine of their last 10 games against the Predators and are 13-3-1 in the last 17 games between the last two teams.

The Opposition

Last five games: 2-3-0, 6 points
On the road: 4-7-0, 8 points
CAR vs. NSH: 2-0-0
Leading scorer: Filip Forsberg, 26 points (10g, 16a) in 25 games

Since these two teams met in Nashville a week ago, the Predators lost consecutive games at home to the Florida Panthers before hitting the road and claiming a 4-3 shootout win over the Dallas Stars. That wasn't without its drama, though. The Stars scored three goals in 6:33 late in regulation to erase a 3-0 deficit, but Pekka Rinne, Filip Forsberg and Roman Josi helped the Preds recover in the shootout."

Injuries: Gardiner (upper body), Mrazek (right thumb), Teravainen (concussion symptoms)

TT sounds like he's going to be a bit longer with how Rod was talking, no update on Mrazek that I caught. Gardiner dealing with this lingering back issue. So Back to Fleury/Bean Kinda wish Rod would put Necas back up with Aho though. Ned gets the start.

Ned has been playing lights out.  Svech is out of his drought. Aho, Nino, Necas and Staal are all on fire. Made it through the crucible of our schedule in great position. And, finally got a little rest. 

I feel a storm coming...

Even predators run from hurricanes. We're a force of nature. 

Let's go y'all!

We dominated the puck the entire period. And, yet, nada.

Defense played well. Took a few dumb penalties. Played agood overall period. We would be up 2 goals, easily if it weren't for
