The Hurricanes will hit the road for the first time in nearly three weeks to take on the Bruins Wednesday night.
Carolina (25-15-5) will hope to return to the win column after a disappointing 5-2 loss to the Wild at home on Sunday. Beating Boston (29-8-9) will be a tall order, however, as the Bruins go into the game riding a five-game win streak.
Crucial to tonight’s matchup will be Martin Necas, who’s hit the ground running in the last two games since coming back from an upper-body injury. Necas, Michael Bunting and Sebastian Aho all boast three points in their last two games going into this matchup against the Bruins, so Carolina will get a big boost if they can stay hot.
The Canes will need to bring their A-game to execute a rare Bruins loss at home. Boston holds a 16-6-3 record in the friendly confines this season, while Carolina will look to improve on its 12-10-1 away record to get a win tonight.
