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.

Forwards

Niederreiter-Aho-Necas
Svechnikov-Trocheck-Fast
McGinn-Staal-Foegele
Paquette-Lorentz-Martinook

Defensemen

Slavin-Hamilton
Skjei-Pesce
Fleury-Bean

Goalies

Nedeljkovic
Reimer

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.

    • fuging Teddy Shitwater threw away that Chinn TD game
    • What they've done in two short years should be applauded. With Boyue back, there really isn't a huge weakness on the defensive side of the ball. We are fast, strong, young and athletic, while also deep enough that we can rotate folks in and out.  If we re-sign DJ, we will be deep 1-3 (as well as Shi) at WR, set at HB and TE, and looks like QB is trending upward on a 23-year old top-3 drafted signal caller.  I think this FA and draft we go full OL and K and walk into 2022 set up for long-term success. Like, if we snag a top OL in FA and grab another in Rounds 1 and 2, I wouldn't be against a K in the fourth or fifth round if there's a Janikowski-esque guy that comes along. 
    • Going into this season, I made a big point of saying that Rhule and Co. could well find themselves on the hot seat if they didn't outperform last year. I still think that could be the case with a late season melt-down, but I have to say right now, things are looking better than they have in years. This team doesn't have the vibe of the 2003 or 2015 seasons, but it has something, that's for sure. Hopefully it's going to be something great, but I keep trying to tailor my vision by reminding myself it's just now week 3. The Jets were a team that collapsed and are being rebuilt. The Saints had excuses and they may have beaten a Green Bay team that is unexpectedly bad (that win over Detroit doesn't wash all the stink off of the prior week). Now, we're up against the Texans and they have a boatload of reasons why they will probably lose. So the pundits will probably downplay our wins, and rightly so. I might worry more if they instead start crowning us as wonderkids this year prematurely. But, all teams have to play the teams that are on the schedule. Just because we're feeling our Wheaties doesn't mean we can demand a cage match against the champs right now. So, we're just going to have to just truck on down the road and keep beating who the schedule makers put in front of us for the next 21 weeks. For once, though, I'm really liking our chances coming out of the gates. And that's been a long time coming.
