Carolina Hurricanes

Talent and depth have been evident for the Carolina Hurricanes during their first two assignments of the season. The team has been clicking on all cylinders, punishing defenses right from the get go. Carolina has the luxury of offensive talent and that fact has given the squad enough confidence to keep every opposition at bay. Taking on a slumping team this early is an opportunity that the Hurricanes could not afford to waste. They are, therefore, expected to unleash their guns blazing as soon as the start of the match to deny any potential uprising from the Canadiens. 

Players to watch: A. Svechnikov RW (G 3, A 1, PTS 4), T. Teravainen LW (G 2, A 1, PTS 3), J. Staal C (G 0, A 2, PTS 2).

Montréal Canadiens

It has been a nightmare of a start for the Montreal Canadiens this season. After four games, the team has found themselves winless while being outscored 15-3. Frustration is already mounting inside the Canadiens’ camp with some members of the team expressing their disgust following the series of embarrassing losses. Another loss would be the team’s first five-game losing skid to start a season since 1996 – a record that they obviously would want to avoid come Thursday against the Hurricanes. It’s a tall order, especially with how the Hurricanes torched their first two opponents. 

Players to watch: J. Drouin LW (G 2, A 0, PTS 2), B. Kulak D (G 0, A 2, PTS 2), C. Dvorak C (G 0, A 1, PTS 1).
