Things were going well on this trip. We had an opportunity to pick up another win, but we didn’t start well and we had to play from behind.

Honestly, I don’t think we’ve been tested like this in this locker room this year, so I think it’s a good opportunity for us to respond and show the character we have in this locker room.“I think we need to regroup here and understand the mistakes that we made. Not only the mistakes, the compete level, the battle level and the work ethic that’s been there, for the most part, all year.”Offence has been the issue for the Hurricanes (13-12-4) and in sixth place in the Metropolitan Division.
