Pregame

After sweeping a home-and-home series with Buffalo last week, the Carolina Hurricanes will shoot for a third consecutive victory when they host the Boston Bruins Monday.

The Canes outscored Buffalo 9-4 in a pair of games to get back to .500 after dropping their first two games of the season by a combined 9-2. A big part of their success has come because the guys that are supposed to be scoring have been.

Captain Eric Staal tallied a hat trick in a 6-3 win over the Sabres Thursday with Jeff Skinner adding two goals. In the win on Friday, Skinner again found the net on an empty netter to give himself a team-leading four goals and newcomer Alexander Semin tallied his first in a Canes uniform. Fellow new-faced Cane Jordan Staal has four helpers on the season,and at least one in each of the last three games.

“We really focused on our zone after the second game, but still, guys are getting familiar with each other, it’s starting,” head coach Kirk Muller said following Sunday’s skate. “You can see the chemistry is starting to kick in a little more.”

Carolina has won four in a row against the Bruins (3-0-1, 7 pts.) and will see back-up goaltender Anton Khudobin who is making his first start of the season. The Canes are 1-0 against No. 2 tenders on the year and are leading the NHL in shots per game at 39.5.

“We may lead in scoring chances too,” Muller said. “It’s starting to come, but obviously we have missed some quality scoring chances. We have the fire power in here that we can score goals but we need to put defense before offense.”

The defense for Carolina has seen change every game with the pairings getting jumbled between games one and two, Jamie McBain suiting for Joe Corvo in game three and Bobby Sanguinetti taking a seat in game four. Carolina Hurricanes Logo Carolina Hurricanes schedule

"The last two games we've really come into our own in terms of playing our system, and I think adding that element of grit to our game has really helped us," said back-up goalie Dan Ellis, who stopped 40 shots in his first start of the season.

Carolina is playing the first of two straight on home ice and will welcome the Ottawa Senators on Friday.

The Bruins have yet to lose a game in regulation this season and their only blemish is an overtime win against the Rangers last Wednesday. Their seven points have them second in the Eastern Conference behind the Tampa Bay Lightning.

"It's really tough to gain back points that you give away early in the season, especially with the shortened season," defenseman Campbell said. "Every team's so good nowadays, it's a point or two that separate teams from making the playoffs or not."

The game starts at 7 p.m. at PNC Arena on 99.9 The Fan ESPN Radio with The Stormfront and The Aftermath hosted by Mike Maniscalco on either end of the contest.

    Not a bad game considering who they were playing. Staal giving them a PP to end the game was inexcusable though.

  • gwnunn Jan 28, 2013

    Cam Ward should be sent to Charlotte until he learns to stop a puck.

  • 321oohaw Jan 28, 2013

    Too bad they weren't playing the Sabres, could have been another win.

  • kornfan2448 Jan 28, 2013

    No matter how this game ends, BIG improvement over the way the season started. Canes are playing pretty good hockey right now.

  • 321oohaw Jan 28, 2013

    Is there a hockey game tonight? I was wondering because I went by the arena and saw thousands of mini vans in the parking lot...Just sayin'

    As long as it's Boston blood, I'm good with it:)

    We need Skins to even the score and then Staal or Staal to get the go ahead goal.

  • tplatania Jan 28, 2013

    Watch Ward give up an early goal!!!! As usual.

    I probably dislike Boston more than any team in the NHL. Heck, I hate every team from Mass. Go Canes!
