It’s been a while since we updated the Unofficial Canes Killer team -- like eight years. The recent exploits of John Tavares against the Hurricanes certainly are cause for re-examination and re-evaluation.
UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- The New York Islanders will switch up their lines tonight for the Canes and plan to have veteran Doug Weight centering the line with John Tavares, the No. 1 pick of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.
Not that it means a lot to the Hurricanes.
"We're so early with where we are, it's all about us," Canes coach Paul Maurice said today. "Clearly they've got some high-end young skill up there that can skate and like to handle the puck. They've been outshooting everybody early and I'm actually expecting that in the first period, and we have to mentally handle that."
