Aside from the order in which the two groups skated, there wasn't much different about the on-ice work of day two compared to day one in Carolina Hurricanes training camp.

There was whiteboard instruction. There were drills. There was systems talk. There was a focus on special teams. There was a scrimmage. And work got done.
