The Carolina Hurricanes are heading into the post season for the restart after finishing in 4th in the Metropolitan Division. What could be a problem for the Hurricanes is the fact that they have bounced all over the place when it comes to their season and how the season ended up with how the team finished.
The Hurricanes offense on the year were able to see Sebastian Aho end up leading the team in the scoring overall with 66 points total of which 38 were goals. When it comes to the passing game the Hurricanes have ended up getting 48 assist from Teuvo Teravainen who has really showed up good for the Hurricanes.
The goalies on the year for the Hurricanes was mainly played by Petr Mrazek who played in 40 games. He ended up posting 21-16-2 record. Mrazekonly allowed 2.69 goals a game and saved 90.5% of the shots that were sent his way. The typical backup for the Hurricanes was James Reimer who played in 25 games and posted a 14-6-2 record while allowing 2.66 goals a game. Reimer saved 91.4% of the shots that were sent towards him.
While the Hurricanes did make the playoffs they did it with consistent play. However, a major problem for the Hurricanes is the fact that they have not really shown up as a strong starting team and were only playing the path of consistent team when challenged. Look for that to continue to be an issue for the Hurricanes in this game here as the Hurricanes are unable to really take off quickly.
