Canes Hope To End Winless Skid Vs Lowly Flyers

Hurricanes_Jeff_Skinner_2013Little has gone right for the Carolina Hurricanes in recent weeks, but they’re hoping a five-game homestand can reverse their fortunes.

Carolina (4-7-3), winless in five straight, returns to PNC Arena on Tuesday night to face the Philadelphia Flyers, who have had their own share of problems this season, but are coming off a 1-0 victory against the New Jersey Devils that saw them allow only 14 shots on goal.

“Home is a place where you need to execute and you need to be good,” Hurricanes defenseman Jay Harrison told the team’s website. “Your home record is very indicative of where you are in this League and it’s something that we’ve consciously identified as an area that needs improvement. We want to take pride in the way we play at home.”
