Tampa Bay is also 4-0 in its last four games versus the Southeast, while Carolina is 5-14 in its last 19 games following a loss of three or more goals. After acquiring Jordan Staal and Alexander Semin in the offseason, the Hurricanes got off to a horrid start, losing 5-1 to the Florida Panthers on Saturday.
