The streaking Toronto Maple Leafs roll into Raleigh, North Carolina this evening to take on the equally hot Hurricanes in their second meeting of the season.

The Hurricanes sit in first place in the Southeast division and return home after going 4-1-1 on a six game road trip, capped off by a strong 4-2 victory over New Jersey on Tuesday.  

The Leafs will try to extend their winning streak to five games for the first time in six years, and will have to push through some adversity to do it. The Leafs will be without key contributors, James Reimer and Matt Frattin who were both lost with knee injuries following Monday night's win over Philadelphia.

The Hurricanes have had the Leafs number in recent times taking the first meeting this season as well as nine of the last 12 games that these two teams have played.

Here are some keys to victory for each team going in to tonight's game.
