The Hurricanes failed to start on time on Saturday night in Dallas, and it ultimately decided the game. To their credit, the team tried to mount a comeback instead of mailing it in at the end of a mileage-heavy road trip, but it was not enough. The trip finished up with a respectable 2-2 record and now sees the team back in Raleigh for a busier week with four games including three at home.
The Monday Coffee Shop is mostly an open forum to discuss the current state of the team now that we have seen six games and a mix of home and away.

1) Scoring…A potentially big problem? A small problem? Not a problem at all? Go!
2) Thoughts on trying to work an AHL call up or two into the lineup for a short audition and possibly a spark? (The team has a handful of players including Lucas Wallmark, Valentin Zykov and Warren Foegele who have started red hot.)
3) What are you hoping for/expecting for this week’s set of games? The competition is tough with match ups against red hot Tampa Bay and Toronto, and two more against perennial playoff teams Anaheim and St. Louis?
4) As always, please say ‘hey’ and briefly introduce yourself if you are new to the Coffee Shop.
