The Islanders and Hurricanes need this prelude as potential front-runners for the Metropolitan Division.
New York has brought back much of its roster from a second appearance in the conference finals, adding seasoned players in Zach Parise and Zdeno Chara. The Islanders also have leading scorer Mathew Barzal back, along with left wing Anders Lee, who is coming back from injury.
Despite being the first of 13 street games, the Islanders’ head coach, Barry Spy, isn’t worried. Carolina went 20-3-5 at home last season, and the Islanders weren’t great on the road – an 11-13-4 record in their 56-game season.
“Taking to the streets is actually going to be a good thing for us,” said Defiant, Sasha Kandrach of NewYorkIslanders.com. “We’ve been home for a while. An early road trip is always good and will do this group good. It’s a good challenge. I look at the first two teams we play against; we have Carolina and Florida. These will be good benchmark games. Should get us involved very quickly. Hopefully we will have some success. We are very capable of this. “
A redesigned Carolina squad just wants to see another team next to themselves after training camp and preseason.
“I think everyone is,” Hurricanes head coach Rod Brind’Amour told the media on Wednesday via Chip Alexander from Raleigh News & Observer. “I think we’re all practiced, so to speak. Boys want to play. “
Carolina and New York haven’t met since the 2019-2020 season due to the division’s reorganization last season amid COVID-19. The islanders wouldn’t recognize the hurricanes anyway.
The Hurricanes changed the gate with Frederik Andersen and Anitti Raanta on board. Carolina also brought in new defenders such as Ian Cole, Tony DeAngelo, Brendan Smith and Ethan Bear. The offensive newcomers included the center Derek Stepan and Jesperi Kotkaniemi, who came in particular from the Stanley Cup runner-up Montreal Canadiens.
“I still have a few questions about the whole group because I don’t know one hundred percent how the lines will go; I’m not sure how the combinations will work, ”said Brind ‘Amour per Alexander. “We haven’t had a chance to really see it yet. As a coach, you probably have to be excited, but you’re always a bit scared. “
Carolina will have a first look at Andersen in goal for the regular season, according to Hurricanes.com’s Walt Ruff. Islanders goalkeeper Semyon Varlamov has a nagging injury that he is “prone” to as the team rated him “doubtful” for Thursday’s game per Kandrach.
