Team News

The Carolina Hurricanes have enjoyed an excellent campaign in the NHL this term, and their spot in the post-season has already been assured. They remain second in the Eastern Conference standings, as they have gone 47-17-9 this term. The Hurricanes come into this game after having gone 4-5-1 over their last ten, while they were handed a rare defeat in their most recent game.

That loss was suffered in comprehensive fashion on Tuesday evening, as they were beaten 4-0 at home by the Tampa Bay Lightning. However, confidence will be high that they could respond on Thursday after going 22-7-6 on the road this term.

Meanwhile, it already appears unlikely that the Detroit Red Wings will be finishing in a playoff spot this term, as they sit 13th in the Eastern Conference standings. They have lost six of their previous ten in regulation. However, they have impressed at home in parts this term, going 18-15-4.

Detroit certainly impressed in their most recent home game, as they picked up a huge 7-4 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins. David Perron was the hero in that game, as he scored three goals, while other efforts were registered by Dylan Larkin, Andrew Cipp, and Jonatan Berggren.


The Hurricanes were extremely disappointing in their most recent game, as they fell to a heavy defeat. However, we expect a response from the playoff contenders when they return to action on Thursday.
