Hurricanes aim to improve on great road record, visit Kings

As comfortable on the road as they are at home, the Carolina Hurricanes bring the NHL’s best road record to the table when they visit the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday.The Hurricanes, who are in the midst of a six-game road trip, are 7-1-0 away from Raleigh this season. Their latest feat came Thursday with a win against the Anaheim Ducks, snapping Anaheim’s eight-game winning streak.”I think the guys come to play and for the year I think we’ve had one stinker,” Hurricanes coach Rod Brind’Amour said. “(Thursday) was a stinker to start but we got to our game and our goalie kept us in it.”Carolina brings a three-game winning streak to Saturday’s tilt against the Kings and has won eight of its past 10 games overall.Hurricanes rookie Seth Jarvis hasn’t looked out of place in his first NHL campaign, with three goals in eight games while skating on the team’s top line with Sebastian Aho and Andrei Svechnikov.Jarvis scored the game-winner for Carolina against Anaheim after he was stopped on a penalty shot early in the third period.”It’s awesome. To help the team win is huge,” said the 19-year-old, who was selected 13th overall by the Hurricanes in the 2020 NHL Draft. “Missing that penalty shot kind of sucked, so I was happy to get one back for the boys. I was happy for us to get two points.”The Kings head into the matchup looking to get back to their winning ways. Los Angeles has lost two straight after a seven-game winning streak, scoring only two goals in their past two outings.
