The Carolina Hurricanes have a very interesting 2012-13 schedule. First, a new CBA has to be signed by the NHL.
The Hurricanes have a six game road trip to begin the season, starting in Winnipeg Oct. 13 in a 3pm game, then heading out to Vancouver, the 3 California teams, and Boston before the home opener Oct. 26 against the Rangers.
Their one game against the Kings is in that road trip, October 18. They play the Devils four times: Dec. 2 and Feb. 16 in the PNC Center. Detroit comes the day after Christmas in what will be one of the most popular games of the year. They do not host Chicago this year.
They host them and the Blue Jackets in a brief two-game homestand.
In February and early March the Canes have ten of eleven games at home. If the Canes are in the running for a playoff berth, these games will be very important. The Canes also close the year with four of their final six games at home.
The All-Star Game this year will be held in Columbus, OH.
Hopefully the Hurricanes will have a better season than they did last year when they stumbled down the stretch.
