It’s kind of hard to believe, but the Carolina Hurricanes have just four home games remaining in the regular season.
Sunday’s 6:00 p.m. game against the Ducks will be the Canes’s last weekend home game of the season, as Carolina looks to put together a little bit more than it did Friday night in a brutally slow loss to the Islanders.
It’ll be Jaccob Slavin’s 500th NHL game on Sunday, as the Canes’ staple on the blue line reaches the half-millennium mark in his seventh season with the team.
As for the Hurricanes’ net Sunday, Rod Brind’Amour said that Antti Raanta wasn’t feeling well and it’s likely Frederik Andersen will get the start, though it will be a decision pregame on Raanta.
