The Hurricanes are the hottest team in the NHL Southeast right now—seven straight wins and 10 straight home wins.

Tonight they are playing a huge game against the Rangers.

The Canes have been playing amazing, such as beating Washington 4 to 1.

Look at Mark Jones recap of the game to see how impressive it was.

They also beat the NJ Devils in a third-period comeback 2-1, and have a recent 3-2 win over Florida.

I believe the ‘Canes will win make the playoffs easy, and possibly go far once they get there.
