Tonight’s  Hurricanes Player to Watch: Brent Burns

In his career against the Kings, Burns has played in 93 games and has recorded 63 points on 23 goals and 40 assists, and he is a plus nine career against them. Last season against the Kings, he played in both games, recording four points on a goal and three assists, and he was a plus-one.

Between the Pipes:

Carolina: Frederik Andersen (1-0-0, 3.00 GAA)

Wrap Up

The Carolina Hurricanes enter an early road trip stretch, and it’s the toughest trip for any Eastern Conference team, but it usually consists of three games against the Kings, Anaheim Ducks, and San Jose Sharks. The Hurricanes will also add the Seattle Kraken and Colorado Avalanche to their trip. It will be a tough stretch as three of those five teams were playoff teams last season, and all are expected to return this season.

In their last ten matchups against Los Angeles, the Hurricanes are 8-2-0 and have outscored them 38-20, and last season, in their two games against each other, the Hurricanes went 2-0-0 and outscored them 9-6.
