Carolina Hurricanes request funding for NHL game at Carter-Finley Stadium - Backing The Pack
It looks like the Hurricanes are angling for a potential Stadium Series or perhaps even a Winter Classic game at NC State’s stadium.
NHL races to keep an eye on over the final stretch of the regular season - CBS Sports
Pete Blackburn takes a look at the interesting storylines coming up in the last two months of the season:
Ovi projects to finish with 61 goals in 80 games played. That would be his second-most prolific scoring season ever, behind the 2007-2008 season when he finished with 65 goals. Meanwhile, Auston Matthews projects to finish with 59 while Pastrnak is pacing 57 — both career highs for the two young forwards.
Prediction: Before the season, I predicted Pastrnak would finish atop the goals list with Matthews and Ovechkin right behind him. I’ll keep Pastrnak at the top but revise to say Ovechkin finishes ahead of Matthews.
