Back in black - again.

For the third straight year, the Carolina Hurricanes will wear their black third jerseys at home during the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Canes were 9-1-2 in their alternate sweaters in the 56-game 2020-21 regular season. In total, the Canes are 34-12-5, which includes a 7-4 record in the postseason, in their black uniforms, which they unveiled in the summer of 2018.

"It's playoff hockey. It's kind of what you expect. I'm sure PNC will be very loud," Dougie Hamilton said. "They'll definitely be buzzing in here, and hopefully we can use that to our advantage."

The Canes host the Predators in Game 1 of the First Round on Monday, May 17 at 8 p.m. Game 2 follows on Wednesday, May 19 at 8 p.m. The series then shifts to Nashville for Games 3 and 4 on Friday, May 21, and Sunday, May 23, respectively.
