Our long national nightmare is over, and the Hurricanes have the full schedule for their first-round series against the Nashville Predators after a bit of a wait following Monday’s regular-season finale.
The first ever playoff series between these two southern franchises will get underway Monday at 8 p.m. at PNC Arena. Following Toronto’s overtime loss last night, the Hurricanes are guaranteed home-ice advantage through at least the first three rounds if they advance that far.
As is typical of any first-round series, it appears these games will be carried on Bally Sports South in addition to any national broadcasts, though the game times and networks have only been revealed for the first three games.
The two teams will play exactly every other day for as long as the series goes.
