With a couple days of practice and the Caniac Carnival already in the rearview mirror, the preseason starts in earnest with three games in three days starting tonight in Buffalo. Someone holler if he/she finds a video stream, but I had a couple contacts from Buffalo ping me to ask if the Hurricanes would have one. They were not aware of one from the Buffalo side. There should be a radio version available online with a chance to enjoy Chuck Kaiton’s call.
The run of three games offers a first chance for Peters to evaluate players outside of the current lineup as possible upgrades and also begin to assess his working version of forward lines, defense pairings and special teams units.
Getting an early read on the situation is the subject of today’s Coffee Shop polls and discussion.
