Lightning @ Hurricanes 3/27 Game 6 of 8


Recommended Posts

"The Carolina Hurricanes make a brief return home to host the Tampa Bay Lightning, a match-up of the top two teams in the Central Division.


The Match-Up

Tampa Bay Lightning (24-7-2, 50 points) vs. Carolina Hurricanes (22-7-3, 47 points)

Saturday, March 27, 7 p.m.

Watch: FOX Sports Carolinas, FOX Sports GO

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

The Opposition

Last five games: 4-1-0, 8 points
On the road: 11-5-2, 24 points
CAR vs. TB: 2-3-0
Leading scorer: Victor Hedman, 33 points (6g, 27a) in 33 games

The Lightning sit atop the league standings with 50 points in 33 games (24-7-2), but the Canes trail them by just three points with a game in hand. The Bolts saw a pair of streaks end in a 4-3 loss in Dallas on Thursday: the team's five-game winning streak and goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy's 12-game winning streak."

Defensemen

Slavin-Hamilton
Skjei-Pesce
Fleury-Bean

Goalies

Reimer
Nedeljkovic

Was really hoping Tro would be back, oh well. Reimer in net, he best come prepared.

good post Harb, Roddy's got the boys in fighting shape and they have quietly just kicked butt. It a pleasure to watch the canes on tv but cant wait to be at PNC soon. When Petr went down I thought it over, but the rook is getting better every game. This will be a test but if they win, the canes will know they belong on top, Tampa is a complete team. Canes win 4-3 and put the league on notice that they play D and are fast...

This one ended quickly. Vast will not give up 16 tonight.

FTFY considering Reims is on pace to give up 2 TDs, 1XP and a 2pt conversion.

I like reimer too. I think we should have started him Vs. Boston more last playoffs. But he is completely in a horrible headspace. 

I don't know what happened to him. I get that Goalies are among the streakiest of all athletes. But, damn.

    • Panthers well represented in Turks and Caicos!!!! 
    • I don't really see it with Philly. For one, I think that at least one of Waddle or Smith is available to them at 12. If they're both there at 8, who's taking one between 9 and 12? Maybe NYG. Supposedly they love Smith. I can't see Denver or Dallas taking one, so it would have to be a trade up. It is hard for me to imagine a big trade up the board with so many WRs grouped in that late 1st-early 2nd range. And if Philly is trading up with Carolina, they're probably not giving up more than a 3rd to do it. Is that really even worth it if you're Carolina?  I can definitely see New England and especially Washington if they like a QB. They'll want to jump to get ahead of Denver. Supposedly Washington loves Lance, and Rivera hasn't exactly denied it. I think it's extremely realistic that WFT would make a big offer to Carolina there. I am skeptical about BB paying the price to trade up, but maybe he's 100% sold on Fields. With WFT, the relationship between Hurney and Rhule will be there to hammer out a deal quickly if both sides want it to happen. Wouldn't be surprising if ultimately the two sides have already the framework of a potential deal frankly.
