The roller coaster ride always occurs during a long NHL season seems to have already started for the Carolina Hurricanes. The home opener was sloppy, but when you win on opening night in exciting fashion, you just take it and be happy. And game two netted a point making for a respectable three points in four games to start the season. But the trend coming out of the Columbus loss and carrying through a loss in Winnipeg was a lack of offense in a pair of 2-1 losses.
Today’s Daily Cup of Joe looks at the two-game (and it is very important to note that it is TWO games) scoring struggles and today’s Coffee Shop discusses the same topic.
