I’m not eager to get behind the Carolina Hurricanes in their current form, but they should be able to get back on track at some point. The Calgary Flames have not played well on the road this season, and the Canes have been one of the better home teams in the country dating back to last season. The price is reasonable. Give me the Hurricanes.
