The Carolina Hurricanes look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Carolina Hurricanes are averaging two goals per game and are scoring on 12.7 percent of their power plays.

The Flyers are 5-12 in their last 17 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-8 in their last 9 overall. The Hurricanes are 23-56 in their last 79 Saturday games and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The Flyers are 0-5 in the last 5 meetings in Carolina and 0-4 in the last 4 meetings overall.
Both of these teams are in a bit of a slump, but the Hurricanes have had the Flyers number as of late. I like Carolina at home to be the team to find the much-needed victory.
