Looking to keep pace in division, 'Canes visit Oilers

Through 30 games of the 2019-20 season, the Carolina Hurricanes have been victorious 18 times. But even that good start is barely good enough right now.

Carolina's first stop on its five-game road trip is in Edmonton on Tuesday to play the Oilers. The road swing ends in Denver against the Colorado Avalanche on Dec. 19.

But the standout play atop the Metropolitan Division has left the Hurricanes currently gridding in the second spot in the wild-card chase, behind the Pittsburgh Penguins.
