NEWS & NOTES:

Last time: After scoring just one goal in their previous two games, losses to Toronto and Florida, the Canes found their offense Thursday night against Edmonton. Andrei Shchnikov scored his second hat trick in as many games against the Oilers this season, scoring his 100th career goal. The trio of #37 was complemented by goals from all three members Jordan Martinook, Jordan Staal and Jesper Schnell line, giving Carolina more than enough attack surface to claim victory. The effort was stopped by Backstopped Pyotr Kochetkov he made 20 stops on his debut in the 2022–23 season, including a first-period penalty against Dylan Holloway.

super weak: After starting the season with eight goals in nine games, Andrei Svechnikov had been sidelined from the scoring department for three straight games before Thursday. He broke that little drought in a great way, becoming only the fifth different player in franchise history to score multiple hat-tricks in the same season. His 11 goals now rank third in the league behind Bo Horvat (12) and Connor McDavid (15).

Numbers for Necas: Martin Neca recorded two assists in the win over Edmonton, his sixth multi-point game and fourth multi-assist game in 2022-23, both of which are team-bests. His six multi-point games ranked sixth in the NHL this season, behind Connor McDavid (EDM, 9), Leon Draisaitl (EDM, 7), Erik Karlsson (SJS, 7), Nathan MacKinnon (COL, 7) and David Pastrnak (BOS, 7).

Don’t overlook the man advantage: Brent Burns‘Thursday’s power play goal gave the Hurricanes the man advantage in five of their last six games.

Injury Report: Forward Ondrej Kase has been on the concussion record since October 13. goalkeeper Frederick Anderson was placed on injured reserve on Friday, retroactive to November 6. Forward Teuvo Teravainen is unlikely to play tonight after sustaining an upper-body injury in Thursday’s win.

On the other hand: The Avalanche have begun their attempt to go back-to-back without their captain Gabriel Landeskog, who is expected to be out until at least January with a lower body injury. However, Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen held their ground well, scoring 40 points in 12 games. As strong as her offense was, her ability to keep the puck out of her own net was perhaps more notable. They have conceded just 34 goals in total, making them the third-least in the league. The defending champions come out tonight after winning three straight contests and twice defeating Nashville and Columbus in the NHL’s Global Series.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:

What do we wear?: The Canes are supposed to be in their white uniforms tonight.

AFTER TODAY:

The team is scheduled to travel to Chicago after the game and have a day off on Sunday. They will then return to action on Monday night against the Blackhawks.
