Hurricanes hope to turn tide vs. Panthers

Carolina Hurricanes coach Rod Brind'Amour doesn't feel like his team is playing poorly, even though the cold, hard facts reveal a three-game losing streak.

"We were pretty much in every game," Brind'Amour said after getting outscored 10-3 in their last three contests this week against the Tampa Bay Lightning, the last two on the road. "Obviously, there are areas we can shore up and get better."

The Hurricanes will hope to make progress in that regard on Saturday night when they visit the Florida Panthers, who lead the Central Division with 28 points. Carolina trails Florida by three points in a tightly packed top half of the division.
