Hurricanes @ Blackhawks 3/30-4/1

Recommended Posts

"CHICAGO - The Carolina Hurricanes are back on the road for a nationally televised two-game set against the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Match-Up

Carolina Hurricanes (23-7-3, 49 points) at Chicago Blackhawks (16-15-5, 37 points)

Tuesday, March 30, 7:30 p.m.

Watch: NBCSN

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

The Opposition

Last five games: 2-3-0, 4 points
At home: 9-6-2, 20 points
CAR vs. CHI: 2-1-0
Leading scorer: Patrick Kane, 48 points (13g, 35a) in 36 games

This two-game series against the Canes marks the latter third of a six-game homestand for the Blackhawks. After sweeping a two-game set against the Florida Panthers, Chicago then dropped back-to-back games against the Nashville Predators. Alex DeBrincat scored two goals in a 1:50 span early in the third to tie the game at two on Sunday, but Roman Josi's tally in the back half of the period was the difference. The Blackhawks, who are 3-7-0 in their last 10 games, now find themselves just on the outside of the playoff cut line in the Central Division.

"They're definitely an interesting team," head coach Rod Brind'Amour said after practice on Monday. "They give you some chances, but they get a lot of chances. It can be a dangerous mix."



CHICAGO - The Carolina Hurricanes could potentially plug Vincent Trocheck back into their lineup when they face off against the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday night.

Trocheck, who has missed the last eight games with an upper-body injury, was actively involved in practice on Monday and is a game-time decision tonight, according to head coach Rod Brind'Amour.

"We're hoping [he] can play," Brind'Amour said. "He's a possibility."

If Trocheck can indeed draw back in, here is the projected lineup for the Hurricanes based on lines used in practice on Monday.







Injuries: Mrazek (right thumb), Teravainen (concussion symptoms; injured reserve)

Taxi squad: Gardiner, Geekie, Keane, McCormick, Warm

Ugh the suspense. Will he? Will he not? Ned back in net. Caught some of Chicago and Nashville’s last game. Chicago was pretty solid despite losing, Nashville simply out played them. Also our last game against them that we won 5-3 is when TT took that bad hit and subsequent concussion. I expect things to get a little chippy tonight but more so Thursday. 



Also our first of three nationally televised, so far, I suspect our TB remaining twofer may be sent national if the league can contractually do it.

Tonight on the call is John Walton & Pierre McGuire. Thursday's match up is John Forslund & Pierre McGuire.

FYI for those in the streaming world I'm pretty sure you can stream both games for free through the Peacock app's NBCSN channel. Not positive though.

Thanks. I have NBCSN on my cable package. But, I might check this out. See if it's any better than Spectrum's streaming app.

    • Assuming we trade down I could see the Patriots, Washington, and the Eagles as realistic trade partners. Philly would like one of the big 3 WR and I believe have the most picks of any team this year. 
    • Just FYI for young football fans who might be on this forum, please don't be fooled by phony sports journalists. They make stuff up and pretend like they have inside information on who will be drafted by which teams. NFL teams, unless they have the #1 over pick, don't go around leaking out who they are taking in the draft. That could harm the team due to trading or other reasons. The draft targets remain a secret until the pick is made.
    • Cutting the 30year old Richardson saves the Browns $11 million in cap space, per Over The Cap, helping create some breathing room for the Browns after they signed Clowney to a one-year deal that can pay him up to $10 million but includes four void years to spread his cap number between 2021 and 2022. Because of those void years, Clowney's cap number for 2021 is just $3.87 million, less than a third of Richardson's cap number of $12.6 million. With this considered, releasing Richardson wasn't entirely necessary. Cleveland still could have carried his contract and remained under the cap at a fairly comfortable margin. But there is an advantage to be had with existing cap space when looking ahead. The Browns are approaching future offseasons in which they'll need to find cap space to re-sign Baker Mayfield, Nick Chubb and Denzel Ward. Carrying a healthy amount of cap space to the end of 2021 will produce a useful rollover number into 2022, when the cap is expected to jump significantly at just the right time for the Browns to spend in order to keep their own.
