Where: Consol Energy Center
When: 7:00 PM EST
Channel: ROOT Sports
The Hurricanes are a bad team. They are last place in their division and they are third worst in differential, sitting at -28. I know people hate that stat but it’s very telling when a team has that bad a differential. Oddly enough every team in their division has a negative differential, mostly because the Southeast Division sucks. They are the opposite of the Atlantic Division.
The Penguins dropped the first game, but won the second.
In that last game the Penguins actually had to deal with a 6-3 powerplay late in the game, but withstood it. Brent Johnson was able to sweep the leg and shut down the Hurricanes, allowing just two goals.
Your goal scorers were Craig Adams, Arron Asham, and Pascal Dupuis.
