19. Carolina Hurricanes at Boston Bruins. Need That Home Cooking.

After a long trip on the road sometimes you just want to come back home and get some delicious, warm home cooking. While the road has not been a pleasant place for the Bruins to travel, they are 6-4-0 at home and welcoming one of the worst teams in the NHL. If the Sabres and Blue Jackets are considered the dumpster fires of the Eastern Conference, Carolina is more like a controled...

Kings-Hurricanes Preview

The Los Angeles Kings were among the best road teams in the NHL last season, but so far that's not carried over into 2014-15. The schedule hasn't done them any favors, either. A road win has eluded the Kings thus far but getting Anze Kopitar back and facing the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday gives them an excellent opportunity for one. Los Angeles (6-3-2) went 23-14-4 in away games...

Coyotes-Hurricanes Preview

Amid the worst start in franchise history, the Carolina Hurricanes are doing their best to remain positive. The Hurricanes again try for that elusive first victory Saturday night against the Arizona Coyotes, who are in danger of opening with five straight road losses for the first time in 22 years. After being outscored 20-6 during an 0-4-1 trip, Carolina (0-6-2) is obviously frustrated...

Comfort Zone

Isolated. That’s how it felt. Everything and everyone was new and foreign. A busy buzz of nothingness, just white noise. In the midst of chaos, it still seemed like a million miles from anything. It was smack dab in the middle of Denver, Colo., widely considered one of the friendliest places on earth. But Denver is 1,670 miles from Washington, D.C. It’s 5,863 miles from Kuybyshev...

All Three Zones Project aka How I Spent My Summer Vacation

Hello everyone, I’d like to start out by apologizing for the lack of activity on the blog over the off-season. It’s been a busy time for me because, as some of you may know, I’m currently in the middle of a project that involves me tracking zone entries & exits from all 1230 games of last year’s NHL season. My intention was (and still is) to track every game and release...

Zone Entries on Jordan Staal’s lines

The other day, I wrote about the struggles of the Hurricanes “second line” and how some of it stemmed from Muller relying on the trio of Jordan Staal, Patrick Dwyer & Nathan Gerbe to play in a top-six role. This was a unit that was reliable and decent when it came to winning the territorial battle at even strength, but they were a glorified checking line and didn’t produce...

Unfortunately, with Ilya Kovalchuk, Alexander Radulov and Alexander Semin missing the tournament due to injuries, the team will have a tough time trying to reach the medal [...]

When A Plan Doesn’t Come Together: An Overview

It’s not easy to sum up the problems with the Carolina Hurricanes because there has been just so much that has gone wrong in a short amount of time. Everyone likes to point out one person as the “root” of the problem and assume everything will be fine that piece is removed, but it doesn’t work like that. There’s a lot that goes into building a team and sometimes things...

Game 70 By the Numbers: Hurricanes at Blackhawks

If there was one game most Hurricane fans had marked down as a loss, last night's showdown against the Chicago Blackhawks was likely at the top of the list. Even at the beginning of the year when spirits were higher, not many expected the Canes to come into the United Center and escape with two points, barring a disastrous season from the Hawks that is. Both of these team's seasons...

Power Play Problems: Setup & Shot Location

The struggles of the Hurricanes power play are frustrating and it goes beyond just this season. The team's power play has ranked in the bottom half of the league for the last five years, so figuring out the root of the problem is a daunting task at this point. This year is especially frustrating because the Hurricanes have the personnel to run a power play that can at least be in...

Breaking Down Hurricanes Power Play: Entries

Special teams are something that can give clubs a big boost and for the Hurricanes it's been the exact opposite. Both their power play and penalty kill are ranked in the bottom-third of the league and their Special Team Index (PP% + PK%) is the third worst in the NHL. For reference, most teams strive to have a STI of at least 100 and the Hurricanes are obviously well below that point...
