NHL releases 2013-14 schedule, Hurricanes open season at home

Posted July 19, 2013

The National Hockey League released the 2013-14 regular-season schedules for its 30 member clubs Friday. The Carolina Hurricanes will open their 82-game season at PNC Arena on Friday, Oct. 4 against the Detroit Red Wings. Of Carolina’s 41 games at PNC Arena, 24 fall on Fridays (12), Saturdays (5) and Sundays (7).

The Hurricanes will play six of their 12 games in October at PNC Arena, including matchups against the last two Stanley Cup champions, Los Angeles (10/11) and Chicago (10/15). Tilts against Philadelphia (10/6) and Pittsburgh (10/28) – rivals from the newly-created Metropolitan Division – also highlight the team’s opening-month schedule.

Carolina will play nine of its 14 games in November at home, including a season-long, five-game home stand from Nov. 5-12, as Philadelphia, the New York Islanders, Minnesota, Colorado and Anaheim visit Raleigh. The Hurricanes close out the second month of the season with a day-after-Thanksgiving meeting with the New Jersey Devils on Nov. 29.

December will see the Hurricanes play eight of 14 games on the road, including a four-game trip from Dec. 9-14. Home games against Columbus (12/23) and Pittsburgh (12/27) will bookend the NHL’s three-day holiday break. Carolina will wrap up 2013 with the return of its New Year’s Eve game, this year against the Montreal Canadiens.

After the calendar turns to 2014, the Hurricanes will play 18 games from Jan. 2-Feb. 8 prior to the NHL taking an extended break as players participate in the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. Carolina will have a four-game home stand from Jan. 31-Feb. 8, prior to the Olympic break.

The Hurricanes will embark on a four-game road trip following the Olympic break, and will play their first post-break home game on March 7 against the New York Rangers. Carolina will round-out the regular season with seven games in April, including five against Metropolitan Division opponents.

In all, the Hurricanes will play 20 sets of back-to-back games during the 2013-14 season, 18 of which involve travel.

NC State and the Hurricanes had been in a stalemate regarding scheduling because according to arena management, NC State holds all priorities when it comes to scheduling at PNC Arena.

NC State Chief Communications Officer Brad Bohlander said that Chancellor Randy Woodson and Carolina Hurricanes president and general manager Jim Rutherford had a positive meeting June 21 to discuss scheduling issues at PNC Arena. Prior to that meeting NC State had released all but 13 dates for the non-conference portion of the season (through December) and all but 23 dates for the conference portion of the season (January - March).

The NHL required scheduling dates be submitted in time for a July release date. The ACC does not release their schedules until late August.

The last of those terms has become the major point of contention for Rutherford because the NHL has warned the Hurricanes of potential fines if the team cannot keep scheduled games.

Individual game tickets for all Carolina Hurricanes exhibition and regular-season games will go on sale to the general public on Sept. 6.

    ...OK Mr. Wizard, let's stick with the 45 losses and you fill in the OT losses. By the wat SA, what section are your season tickets in?

    Me too, Cragsdale. And I agree that the Canes play up to their level of competition. They seem able to beat some of the best teams and then lose to the worst. They do need to open strong - can't dig themselves into a hole early in the season. Hopefully the guys will stay healthy - HATE that Staal had that nasty knee injury, and I hope it doesn't make him play tentative.

    should be interesting. I'll pull for the canes no matter what happens, but I do hope we open strong.

    I'm sure the best he had dribbled down your mom's leg.

    But As far as hockey goes. I'm looking forward to this season. People forget that the canes really play up to competition, it's the cellar dwellers like Columbus, Nashville, Florida, and TB that they always lose to. This should be a good season.

    Is that your IQ range?

    Good schedule with a nice amount of weekend games. Canes have to be happy about that. October is tough but at least they actually have some home games in October. October may be one of those they get out at 500 or better I would be really happy!

  • I am not who you think I am Jul 19, 2013
