Playoffs mathematicly clinched at least get our guys healthy for the playoffs and we the Lighting are the only team in the first two rounds that worry me.

That’s why we need the 1 seed. I feel like Florida stands the best chance against Tampa in the first round. Though they have looked not all that sharp in reality. 
 

I think with us getting a point and Florida on the verge of a loss we still sit with a two game lead on control of our destiny.

Yeah with the Florida loss we are still in full control, two points and two games in hand on them.... Three points up on Tampa...

I'm completely off the Reimer bandwagon. Giving him the benefit of the doubt, he still allowed a couple weak goals.

I'd be remiss not to mention 4 goals by blue-liners in the last 2 games.

And the line combos by RBA almost look desperate at this point.

Reimer is giving up 3-4 goals every time he's on the ice.... 

 

The lack of depth due to injuries at this point is certainly affecting how they approach the game, the Canes play a high energy high speed brand of Hockey and when your better players are having to put in the extra minutes on a grind of a road trip this should be expected.

 

I think we win last night easily if Ned/Petr are in goal.

I don’t think anyone quoted it on twitter but Rod basically came out and said if we were still fighting for a playoff spot most of our injured would be playing right now in today’s pregame presser.

"DALLAS - Less than 24 hours after punching their return ticket to the postseason, the Carolina Hurricanes aim to inch closer to locking up first place in the Central Division in a rematch against the Dallas Stars.


The Match-Up

Carolina Hurricanes (31-10-7, 69 points) at Dallas Stars (21-15-12, 54 points)

Tuesday, April 27, 8:30 p.m.

Watch: Bally Sports South, Bally Sports app

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

Numbers to Know

7: The Canes have garnered seven of a possible 10 points on this road trip, with a chance to bring home 9 of 12, all while playing with an injury-riddled lineup.

2: Morgan Geekie recorded a pair of primary assists on Monday night, his first career multi-assist game in the NHL.

7: In seven games with the Canes, Hakanpaa now has more goals (2) than he did in his first 47 games in the NHL with Anaheim (1)."

"Here is the projected lineup for the Hurricanes.

Forwards

Svechnikov-Aho
Niederreiter-Trocheck-Necas
Paquette-Staal-Foegele
McCormick-Lorentz-Geekie

Defensemen

Slavin-Hamilton
Gardiner-Pesce
Bean-Hakanpaa
Ryan

Goalies

Nedeljkovic
Reimer

Injuries: Fast (lower body), Martinook (lower body), McGinn (upper body), Mrazek (lower body), Skjei (concussion), Teravainen (concussion symptoms; injured reserve)

Taxi squad: Shore"

I doubt we’ll see any injured return but I think we might see some taxi squad/line movement. At most maybe Fast back. But I’m gonna bet that’ll probably be at our first home game after this stretch and someone else probably getting a “rest”.
