Red Wings @ Hurricanes Game Thread 4/10-4/12


Recommended Posts

"Now sitting atop the Central Division, the Carolina Hurricanes continue their longest homestand of the season with a two-game set against the Detroit Red Wings.


The Match-Up

Detroit Red Wings (13-23-6, 32 points) vs. Carolina Hurricanes (27-9-3, 57 points)

Saturday, April 10, 7 p.m.

Watch: Bally Sports South, FOX Sports GO

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


Numbers to Know

12: Vincent Trocheck has recorded at least a point in each of the last 12 games he's played (7g, 10a). Despite playing in only 30 of the Canes' 39 games this season, Trocheck ranks second on the team in points (33), tied for first on the team in goals (16), and first on the team in both power-play points (16) and power-play goals (7).

6: Alex Nedeljkovic recorded a 24-save shutout, his third clean sheet of the season, on Thursday against the Panthers. As a team, the Canes have recorded six shutouts this season, which ranks tied for first place in the NHL with the New York Islanders.

3-for-8: After being held without a goal on the man advantage for four straight games, the Canes have converted 37.5% of their powe play chances (3-for-8) in the last two games.


The Opposition

Last five games: 1-2-2, 4 points
On the road: 4-14-2, 10 points
CAR vs. DET: 3-2-0
Leading scorer: Filip Hronek, 22 points (2g, 20a) in 42 games

The Red Wings arrive in Raleigh on the heels of a 7-1 defeat at the hands of the red-hot Nashville Predators. Bobby Ryan, who totaled 14 points (7g, 7a) in 33 games, has not played since March 28 and will miss the remainder of the season with an upper-body injury. On Friday, Detroit traded defenseman Patrik Nemeth to Colorado in exchange for a fourth-round pick in the 2022 NHL Draft."

Reimer

Injury: McGinn (upper body), Teravainen (concussion symptoms; injured reserve)

Looks like they are trying to get Gardiner some game time. Does anyone know how many more games Ned needs for RFA? I lost track.

I'd be tempted to drop Dougie into the second line, move Bean up and drop Pesce to Jake's line just to give some assistance to Jake in his comeback game.

I also believe Dougie makes some bad decisions based upon his line-mate in Slavin. Put him on a line where he has to make better decisions and help out a less-experienced player in Bean and maybe he shows us why he should get $8M a season?

So Skjei-Slavin, Dougie-Bean, Gardiner-Pesce?

Lighting acquired Savard

Ya Florida just picked up Montour, too.

Looks like Columbus is on the sell.
