The Carolina Hurricanes are 1-1-1 so far into the NHL 2017-18 season. They have 3 points. Their opponents, the Edmonton Oilers have a much worse score upon comparison. The Oilers sit at a 1-3-0 with 2 points. Both teams are quite on the weaker side of the standings. And rightfully so. The Hurricanes have poor scores to show as averages per game while the Oilers are on a losing spree even if they have respectable scores.
The Carolina Hurricanes have been facing back to back poor games. Jeff Skinner leads the team in points and goals with a small score of 2. As for assists, Justin Williams leads the team with the same digit. These are surely small numbers.
However, the team hasn’t been performing worse than the Oilers when it comes to scoring. Their 1-1-1 score so far isn’t bad as compared to a 1-3-0 of their opponents this game.
Perhaps, they will be able to pull off a win. Of course, the key highlight will be the new goaltender Scott Darling. In the last two games, he saved 44 out of 48 shots. So, even if the offense of the team is poor, the defense will do its job of keeping the opponent goals not very far from them.
The Edmonton Oilers are also on a losing streak of three games. Their first priority for the game against the Carolina Hurricanes will be to stop their losing spree. They will all in their might to avoid a forth loss in a row.
People had huge expectations about Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. Both the players have legit reasons to be favored. However, when the team goes on a three-game losing streak, the hopes of the fans surely falter.
