Match announcement

Carolina Hurricanes

Carolina became one of the leaders in the Eastern conference, despite a poor start of the season. Four consecutive victories helped the team to improve position in the standings. In three latest home matches team managed to beat Seattle (3:2), Dallas (5:4 OT) and Pittsburgh (3:2). 

Hurricanes are quite disciplined on defense, they rarely concede more than two goals per game. Sebastian Aho and Andrei Svechnikov are team's best offensive players, they have 27 and 29 points respectively in the current season. 

New Jersey Devils

New Jersey might leave the 2nd position in the Eastern conference after a string of poor results. Team suffered defeats in five latest matches and in four of them they failed to get any points. Before that, they were defeated at home by Dallas (1:4), Philadelphia (1:2) and Florida (2:4).

The Devils have problems with finishing and rarely score more than two goals. Lindy Ruff's men might be able to get an away victory, because in recent away matches they suffered only one defeat in regular time.
