The Carolina Hurricanes have started come on a bit lately. The Canes have won seven of their last 10 games and are still on the fringe of the playoff picture in the Eastern Conference.
Carolina remains one of the league’s most confounding teams. The Hurricanes are very talented and their underlying numbers look great, but they are still having trouble establishing themselves as a threat to crash their way into the playoff picture.
This has been the story with Carolina for half a decade. This season at least has been different in that the Hurricanes have a new coach, Rod Brind’amour, who took over for Bill Peters after four seasons.
Peters now coaches the Calgary Flames, who had a very Hurricane-like season in 2017-18. The main difference is that the Flames are tasting that sweet, sweet regression that Carolina has been promised for years.
Calgary is flying high at the moment, going 18-4-3 in its last 25 games and 8-1-1 in its last 10. The Flames currently occupy the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference and have the second-best goal differential in the NHL.
