The Hurricanes had a good month in January, then the city of Raleigh shined during the All-Star weekend. Things were looking good for the team as they headed into a very tough month of February. First up on Tuesday night was the Northeast-leading Bruins, who had won the last two games between the teams.
It was a hard-fought game in front of an excellent weeknight crowd of 18,000. Unfortunately, Carolina was unable to earn even a consolation point. The Bruins skated out of there with a 3-2 regulation win. Meanwhile, the Thrashers were beaten by the Islanders, which left the back door open. They’ll have to wait until Thursday night for another chance to creep inside the playoff picture. The Thrashers will be at home against Calgary while the Hurricanes are in Toronto. Following that, Atlanta and Carolina meet up for a “four point game” in Raleigh on Saturday.
