The Noon Number: Hurricane Threat Downgraded?

A look at a struggling Carolina squad that comes calling tonight

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

3.45 - Goals per game allowed by the Hurricanes on the road this season, third-worst in the NHL (ahead of only the Flames and Islanders). Carolina visits Verizon Center tonight ranked 20th in the League or lower in goals per game, goals against per game, five-on-five goal ratio, power-play and penalty kill efficiency and shots for and against per game.

Of course, the punchline here is that in their only visit to Verizon Center so far this year, the 'Canes beat the Caps 3-2, won the special teams battle and out-shot their hosts... so don't chalk up those two points quite yet.
