As the playoffs are approaching, we look for playoff bound teams that have been playing very well in their final games. These teams will be in hot streaks when they get to the playoffs and might be very hard to defeat. The playoff bound team that has been the hottest lately is probably the Carolina Hurricanes. They have won their last five games in a row. They have earned points in 12 of their last 13 games. This has helped to propel the Hurricanes into fifth in the East Conference with 89 points.
As we came into last night’s games, the two highest scorers in the month of March so far are both Carolina players. Ray Whitney has 18 points and Eric Staal 17 points so far this month. Their offence has been a big part of Carolina’s recent successes.
The Carolina Hurricanes are generally not looked upon as one of the tougher playoff matchups in the East Conference, but if they continue to play this well they will be very tough.
