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."

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...

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.
