RALEIGH Vincent Trocheck Jersey , N.C. — Even with the recent struggles, there’s something to look forward to for the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday.It’s a much-discussed “Whalers Night” when the Boston Bruins visit for the game at PNC Arena.The Hurricanes are recognizing their history.Article continues below ...For the first time since relocating to North Carolina in 1997, the team will wear retro Hartford Whalers jerseys. The vintage green sweaters will be part of the scene.“We practiced in the gear the other day and it kind of took me back, ‘What are we doing?'” Carolina coach Rod Brind’Amour said.The game will include several Whalers-themed off-ice activities. Plus, former Whalers standout Mike Rogers will be honored during a ceremonial faceoff.The Hurricanes also will don the Whalers logo for its road game on March 5 in Boston.Despite the historical perspective, it’s still a chance for the Hurricanes to get going in the right direction in the final game of a five-game homestand.“I know it’s going to be pretty exciting for a lot of people,” Brind’Amour said of the Whalers memories. “Different, and I think that’s good. But it’s still another game.”It’s another one the Hurricanes desperately need to win. They’re 2-6-2 in their last 10 outings.The Bruins are feeling good after a 5-2 home victory over the Nashville Predators on Saturday. It marked a tremendous return to action for veteran center Patrice Bergeron.He notched four points (two goals, two assists) in the game.“I’ve been missing it for so long,” said Bergeron, who missed the previous 16 games.Bergeron Adrian Kempe Jersey , who’s in his 15th season, registered his 300th career goal in Saturday’s game.“I was trying to talk to the guys and be vocal that we have to enjoy it and go out there and just have fun,” Bergeron said.Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy, whose team holds a three-game winning streak, will have to manage a tweaked lineup with Bergeron apparently going strong upon his return.“It’s more about it’s an opportunity for someone to get going offensively,” Cassidy said of updates to the line combinations.But with Bergeron back, it “makes us that much better,” the coach said. “We’ve been playing well lately without him, but he just gives an emotional boost. … It’s a guy that you can throw out there any time and you know he’s going to get the job done.”Plus, the Bruins don’t want to disrupt rhythm developed by some young players recently promoted. Winger Ryan Donato said he’s becoming more comfortable.“All those habits you get when you’re playing in every situation,” Donato said.After three consecutive starts for goalie Jaroslav Halak http://www.officialislanders.com/authentic-adidas-mathew-barzal-jersey , Cassidy indicated that it will be Tuukka Rask in the net against Carolina.In the last two games combined, Carolina has a total of 78 shots but only one goal.The Hurricanes used goalie Curtis McElhinney, who was coming off an injury and in game action for the first time since Dec. 5, in Saturday night’s loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins. That figures they’ll turn to Petr Mrazek for Sunday’s game.Boston beat Carolina 3-2 on Oct. 30 in Raleigh. RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The New York Islanders don’t have John Tavares anymore. They still have playmakers.Reigning rookie of the year Mathew Barzal set up Josh Bailey’s power-play winner 43 seconds into overtime, and the Islanders began their post-Tavares era by beating the Carolina Hurricanes 2-1 on Thursday night.“That whole power play has been really good through the preseason,” Trotz said. “(Bailey) understands the spots. Obviously, it runs through Mathew on that one side. They’ve got a real good understanding.”Valtteri Filppula also scored as the Islanders gave Trotz a victory in his debut with the team and spoiled Rod Brind’Amour’s first game behind the Carolina bench.“The amount of work this whole staff has put in has been pretty remarkable, and the amount of information coming our way is overwhelming at times,” alternate captain Cal Clutterbuck said. “Good to see him get that first one. He’s a seasoned guy and I think he’s prepared us well.”Trotz took over shortly after leading Washington to its first Stanley Cup, taking over after Doug Weight was fired. Brind’Amour http://www.officialislanders.com/authentic-adidas-nick-leddy-jersey , the captain of Carolina’s Cup-winning team in 2006, replaced Bill Peters after he left for Calgary. Tavares signed with Toronto as a free agent.Jordan Staal sent it to OT by scoring a deflected goal with 1:35 remaining in regulation for Carolina, but the Islanders started overtime with a 4-on-3 advantage after Micheal Ferland was called for tripping Barzal with 3.2 seconds left.Barzal threaded a cross-ice pass from the circle to Bailey, who ended it by snapping the puck past Mrazek.“They made a great shot. They made a great play,” Carolina captain Justin Williams said. “Our goalie was there, but it was the perfect shot.”Mrazek stopped 18 shots for Carolina. Thomas Greiss made 45 saves for the Islanders, and for a long while appeared headed for another save-heavy shutout in Raleigh. He also stopped 45 shots in a 3-0 victory over Carolina on Feb. 16.“They like to shoot the puck, that’s what it is,” Greiss said.But with Mrazek on the bench for an extra attacker, Dougie Hamilton uncorked a blast that clipped Staal’s backside on its way past Greiss. The goal stood following a review to determine whether Ferland interfered with the Islanders goalie.“We dug in,” Brind’Amour said. “We didn’t just fold.”Both teams enter the season optimistic that their meager recent playoff histories are just that — history.The Islanders http://www.floridapanthersteamshops.com/authentic-james-reimer-jersey , who have just one playoff series win since 1993, have made the postseason just three times in the past 11 years.The Hurricanes have been worse. They’ve made the playoffs just once since Brind’Amour hoisted the Cup, and their nine-year postseason drought is not only the longest active dry spell in the league but one year shy of matching the NHL record for futility.A bad omen for them, perhaps: Since the lockout that wiped out the 2004-05 season, the Hurricanes have not made the playoffs in any season in which they lost their first game at PNC Arena.“We’re planning on playing a lot more than 82 games this year,” Williams said. “This was just one. One that didn’t go our way.”Six players — led by No. 2 overall draft pick Andrei Svechnikov — made their debuts with the new-look Hurricanes, including Mrazek, who signed with Carolina in July after club stalwart Cam Ward left for Chicago. He drew the start on opening night after Scott Darling injured his hamstring in the preseason finale four days earlier against Nashville.NOTES: Carolina D Justin Faulk and Svechnikov each rang the post in the first. … Both teams had five wins during the preseason, tied for the most in the Metropolitan Division. … The Hurricanes’ 5-0-1 mark in the preseason was its best since the club moved to North Carolina in 1997.UP NEXTIslanders: Play their home opener Saturday night against Nashville.Hurricanes: Play at Columbus on Friday night.
