Hurricanes @ Panthers 4/22-4/24 Final Two


Recommended Posts

"FORT LAUDERDALE - After claiming three of a possible four points in Tampa, the Carolina Hurricanes are set to square off against the Florida Panthers to defend first place in the Central Division.


The Match-Up

Carolina Hurricanes (30-10-5, 65 points) at Florida Panthers (30-12-5, 65 points)

Thursday, April 22, 7 p.m.

Watch: Bally Sports South, FOX Sports GO

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


Numbers to Know

6: Vincent Trocheck, who has recorded at least a point in 16 of his last 18 games (8g, 14a), has scored in all six games against the Panthers this season.

2016: After Jake Gardiner sparred with Alex Killorn on April 19, Jordan Martinook's fight against Barclay Goodrow the next night marked the first time the Canes have been assessed fighting majors on consecutive nights since Jan. 8-9, 2016 when Brad Malone dropped the gloves against Bradon Dubsinsky and Jared Boll of the Columbus Blue Jackets.


The Opposition

Last five games: 4-0-1, 9 points
At home: 16-4-3, 35 points
CAR vs. FLA: 5-0-1
Leading scorer: Jonathan Huberdeau, 49 points (16g, 33a) in 47 games

The Panthers enter this game having won three straight and four of their last five games (4-0-1). Spencer Knight turned aside 33 of 34 shots in his NHL debut, backstopping the Panthers to a 5-1 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday. Florida owns the same number of points in the standings as the Canes (65), but they've played two more games."

Lot to unpack here heading into our final two with Florida. They've been winning since they faced us in Raleigh. Looks like Bean has drawn Rods ire as he's a healthy scratch and we are bringing up Ryan.

The Ryan move is an odd one. Maybe they just want to see what he has before the playoffs in case of injuries. IDK

Could be but there are better teams to do it against. It‘s pretty clear bean is in the dog house after that soft goal against and the PIM time his past two games.
