Carolina Hurricanes: Playing out the string on a long season of losing in Raleigh, NC
NHL regular season action probably can’t end soon enough for Carolina. The Hurricanes are officially eliminated from postseason play and their 26-38-11 record has then placed 26th overall in the NHL. It’s been a miserable March in Raleigh as the hometown hockey hero’s have posted a 4-6-3 record. The said, the Hurricanes have been putting in some effort as they beat up on Pittsburgh (5-2) and New Jersey (3-1) prior to dropping a 2-1 overtime decision versus Boston on Sunday.
Hurricanes vs Capitals Call: It’s difficult to not like Washington in this contest tonight. They are at home, they are hungry for a better playoff position and they have one of the greatest goal scorers in NHL history who is ready to put another mark in the NHL record books.
