The Hurricanes beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-1 Thursday night, snapping Toronto's six-game winning streak. Now the Hurricanes have the opportunity to hand the Rangers a loss after four straight wins.
“It's more about how we play each night than it is about who we play against,” Carolina coach Bill Peters said. “When we've won those games, we haven't beaten ourselves. On Thursday, we played a very good game, we started on time, and we didn't make those mistakes that end up in the back of your net.”
