Hurricanes seek to snap three-game skid against Bruins

Boston (22-24-4) at Carolina (26-22-6) 8:30 pm EST

RALEIGH, North Carolina (Ticker) - The Boston Bruins may just be the right medicine for the ailing Carolina Hurricanes.

The Hurricanes hope to snap a three-game losing streak when the stumbling Bruins invade the RBC Center on Saturday.

Carolina was on a 4-0-1 streak until its offense totally shut down in three consecutive losses, capped by a 4-0 blanking at the hands of Tampa Bay on Thursday - its seventh shutout this season. The club has scored just four goals over the skid and been abysmal with the man advantage, converting just 2-of-29 power-play chances.

The Hurricanes have won the first two games against the Bruins this season by a combined 10-3 count. Furthermore, Boston has lost season highs of five-straight games overall and seven straight road games. The Bruins may soon challenge the NBA Celtics, who on Friday lost their 14th straight game, if they soon do not turn around their fortunes.

Marco Sturm scored in the first period Thursday against Buffalo before surrendering three unanswered goals in a 3-1 defeat to the Northeast Division leaders.

The Bruins have scored a total of four goals and allowed 22 during their five-game skid since a 5-4 triumph against Pittsburgh on January 28.
