3-unit Play Take #57 Detroit Red Wings over Carolina Hurricanes (7:05pm EST) The Carolina Hurricanes had a miserable finish to their season last year. They dropped 19 of 23 down the stretch and finished well below expectations. One of the biggest reasons for their struggles was the vast amount of injuries that they had to endure. While that's no excuse, the Hurricanes aren't a particularly deep team so it hit them hard. Now we're onto the 2013-14 season and guess what - the Hurricanes have injury problems again. Tuomo Ruutu, Joni Pitkanen and Tim Gleason are all out for today's game. Those are all key pieces to this team and it will certainly affect their performance to start the season. Alexander Semin is also a bit banged up but should play. They'll host the Detroit Red Wings in their home opener. The Wings played the other night and dominated the Sabres in a game that looked a lot closer than the 2-1 final indicates. Given that they have already played their first game, I expect Detroit to have a leg up early on in this battle. Detroit is the much better team as is, and given that extra edge against a banged up team I think they will notch the victory here.
