No. 20: Carolina Hurricanes
Season record: 7-6-4
This is what the Hurricanes do, isn’t it? They go on streaks to make it seem like they’re getting back into the postseason chase, and then they ultimately fall back. This time is currently the former for Carolina.
The team has won its last four games. Victor Rask and Jeff Skinner are doing plenty to help with 15 points apiece, while Cam Ward is trying to find some past spark (.916/2.36). Oh, and former Blackhawk Teuvo Teravainen has 10 points.
Carolina is still in the lower portion of the Eastern Conference standings, but maybe they can actually sustain this current run. Probably not.
