Will the goalkeepers receive the offensive support Canes needs or will we see another bad score case?
Curtis McElhinney stopped 27 of 29 shots in a 2-1 loss to the Canes. It was not enough this time, as John Gibson continued his stellar season by stopping 33 of the Hurricanes’ 34 shots. The only goal of the Canes marked by the second option in the constant improvement of the preliminary draw of 2018, Andrei Svechnikov.
Unfortunately, the improved game of Canes with special teams neglected. The power games saw the ice six times for the Canes, but no goal was found. The team’s efforts to score goals are in vain, as Canes scored just four goals in his last three games, which leaves a familiar feeling for fans.
Carolina Hurricanes vs Los Angeles Kings: News
The news announced on Saturday that Jake Bean returned to Charlotte. Thanks to this, the fans of Canes can rejoice as Brett Pesce and Haydn Fleury activated from the IR. Although this will not solve the attack problems facing the team, we should expect at least one of them to divide the training on Sunday night. This could be a real boost to trust.
The Canes are now starting three races in California, starting with the last-place team in the Pacific Division, Los Angeles Kings.

Carolina Hurricanes vs Los Angeles Kings: Predictions
Flames’ lineup is still not ideal, Michael Frolik is still missing and Bill Peters continues making questionable decisions. RE: Ryan Lomberg. Andrew Mangiapane got his first game as Flame this season, but Austin Czarnik was again eliminated from the lineup. While his performances do not really make it up. Lomberg retains him despite his performance that really does not succeed.
While the complete game of Canes has undoubtedly been a welcome spectacle, the most important development has undoubtedly been the Warren Foegele game. With seven points (one goal, six assists) and playing in a very productive line with Teuvo Teravainen and Sebastian Aho, Foegele won a place in a team with a fantastic camp that he expects to do, it is to be expected. Goalscorer Scott Darling’s preseason rebound is another notable advantage. His saving percentage of .978 is the best in the NHL preseason so far and has stopped 44 of the 45 pucks sent. The preseason numbers come with the usual warnings, but the Canes certainly expect these performances to be a sign of what will happen next year.
Prediction: Hurricanes 3-1 Kings
