With the team’s loss to the Vegas Golden Knights, the Carolina Hurricanes fell to 3-6-1 in its past 10 games. With the Rangers sputtering a bit too, the gap (adjusted for games played) is still only two points from the final playoff spot, but it also requires jumping three teams to get there. In addition, the Hurricanes’ one step forward one step back movement and ongoing struggles with consistency and at the goalie position, the trajectory does need to change and change soon for the 2017-18 season to end differently than the past eight seasons.
At the risk of re-hashing other discussions, the Monday Coffee Shop focuses on the here and now and what could help take the next step forward.
