It’s a cross conference showdown on Thursday night in Alberta. The Carolina Hurricanes come to town to take on the Calgary Flames.
These two teams faced off twice last year with the visiting team winning each game.
The Carolina Hurricanes are a very young team and they have been tested a lot early this season. They have played four games so far this year, and three of them were decided by a goal.
The last game was the only one that wasn’t decided by one goal and that a 5-3 victory over Edmonton.
The one thing the Hurricanes need to do is to start playing better defense. They have made a lot of bad plays in the defensive zone that have led to a lot of easy goals for the opponents.
In this game they need to be sound with the puck and try to not just give it away.
On the other side of this match up is the Calgary Flames who have had a nice start to their season. The one thing that they need to do better is being more consistent on offense.
In their last game they put up five goals in a victory over Vancouver, but the game before they couldn’t put any goals in the back of the net and gave up six of them on the way to a loss against Ottawa.
