Red and Black Hockey

Canes-Flyers round 2

Tonight will be the back end of a home-and-home with the Flyers, and the second of four games between the team in a sixteen day window.  I’ve seen this kind of overload in intra-division play, but never lout of division.  Today’s game is a 1pm matinee.  Historically, Carolina hasn’t fared well in holiday matinee games, but hopefully they’ll buck that trend.

Defenseman Frantisek Kaberle has been activated from the IR and will hopefully return to action.

Carolina has lost three games in a row and is three points back of Washington in the SE division. Somehow, the Hurricanes are in eighth place in the East, but they haven’t looked much like a playoff team.  Meanwhile, the Flyers, who are two standings points ahead of the Canes, are winners of six straight games.
