RALEIGH, N.C. -- The Carolina Hurricanes will try to end a visiting team's winning streak for the second straight game when they host the New York Rangers on Saturday.
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.
Carolina has been mired in a tough stretch, losing 10 of 13. The three wins, however, have come against the Maple Leafs, Nashville Predators, and Pittsburgh Penguins.
“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.”
