Panthers vs Hurricanes preview – Game 1
Massive underdogs through both of the previous rounds, against all odds the Panthers have reached the Eastern Conference Final for the first time in 27 years, and their journey gets more and more extraordinary as they face the Hurricanes.
The Panthers’ Marc Staal and former Stanley Cup-winning Canes captain Eric Staal are competing against their brother, the current Canes captain Jordan Staal, for a shot at the championship. Carolina coach Rod Brind’Amour, meanwhile, is looking to outmatch his former mentor, Florida coach Paul Maurice, who had two stints in charge of their opponents and gave Rod the Bod his big coaching break.
Love can make people behave in strange ways, and we have no doubt that those fraternal bonds will inspire just that little bit extra from the series’ main protagonists.
The Panthers entered the playoffs as the team that everybody wanted to play, but after pulling off almighty upsets over the Bruins and Maple Leafs, there’s a growing sense that this could actually be their year. The Hurricanes, who beat the Panthers twice in the regular season, need to block out all of the noise and just focus on what’s in front of them: an on-fire Matthew Tkachuk.
Here’s how to watch a Panthers vs Hurricanes live stream no matter where you are. The puck drops for Game 1 at 8pm ET / 5pm PT on Thursday.
