After a very disappointing game Saturday night, losing to the Blackhawks, 4-3 in OT after going into the third with a 3-1 lead, the Carolina Hurricanes bounced back in a big way with a 5-1 win over the Dallas Stars, lead by Teuvo Teravainen’s first career hat trick, all scored in the third period.

First the Chicago Blackhawks spotted the Canes six players, then spotted the Canes two goals, twice, before taking care of business and beating the Canes 4-3 in overtime in what was a very exciting and entertaining game.
Not sure if it was the knowledge of home cooking with seven of the next 10 games at the PNC Arena, playing a third bad team in a row or the desperation that something has to change, and change quickly, as the season could have started slipping away, but the Canes pulled through with a satisfying 3-1 win over the Florida Panthers Tuesday, November 7, 2017.
The Carolina Hurricanes did everything but score in an impressive 5 minute overtime period getting off 9 shots, 3 on breakaways but just couldn’t get one past Ryan Miller. Corey Perry, scored the lone shootout goal giving the Ducks the 4-3 win.
The Carolina Hurricanes returned home after a semi-successful, two-wins-two-losses-long road trip. The Canes played better than the 2-2 record, which is very encouraging considering their records in recent past years for the get-out-of-town-for the-State-Fair road trip.
The Carolina Hurricanes garnered a point from the 2-1 overtime loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets to close out their short home stand before vacating the PNC Arena while the State Fair is in town. Like the Canes, Columbus is another small market team and doesn’t get a lot of NHL press. But don’t underestimate them – they are a very good team with an outstanding goalie and are the only team in the NHL younger, by a two month average, than the Canes.
After another very long summer, the Canes hit the ice Saturday, October 7, 2017 against the Minnesota Wild, coming up with an exciting 5-4 win with a shootout win after leading the game for only 90 seconds.
The Carolina Hurricanes won their last preseason game against the Washington Capitals 3-1 to end their preseason with a mark of five wins, two losses. The teams on the ice were as close to opening night rosters with the game having nearly everything a regular season game would have. Big name missing was Alex Ovechkin for Washington.
After winning their first two preseason games on the road, the Canes lost to the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-3 on Wednesday September 20, 2017 at the PNC Arena. The Canes beat Tampa Bay the night before in Florida and beat the Buffalo Sabres on Monday.
Once again, readers of the CaryCitizen.com will have another great 3-for-1 game special. The deal will include a preseason game and two premier games including the HOME OPENER against Minnesota and Eric Staal on Saturday, October 7, 2017.
