Colorado continues to be an easy target for teams and will look to switch their fortunes when they take on the Hurricanes.
The inability of the Hurricanes to find any sort of stability has been their biggest struggle this season.
The Hurricanes have flirted with the .500 mark consistently this year and enter Tuesday’s contest an even 26-26-5-5. Carolina put an end to their 4 game losing skid last time out as they held of the Coyotes 2-1 on the road. The win was a bit of revenge as they dropped a home decision those same Coyotes 4-2 the game prior.
The season has been a tale home and away for Carolina.
The Hurricanes have gone 18-10-1-1 at home, but when they hit the road, things head south quickly. Carolina will enter Monday’s road contest just 8-16-4-4.
Offensively, things have to improve for them.
The Hurricanes rank in the bottom tier of the NHL, averaging just 2.5 goals per game.
The Avalanche are in the midst of another losing streak.
Colorado has dropped 4 straight and 7 of their last 8 games as they enter play off a 3-0 shut out loss to the St. Louis Blues at home on Sunday night.
Colorado’s lackluster offensive performance is nothing new. The Avalanche rank dead last in scoring, averaging just 1.9 goals per game.
Defensively, things are no better for the last place Avs. Colorado is allowing an NHL worst 3.3 goals per game, as they simply struggle with allowing the opposition to get open looks in front of the net.
