CAROLINA / WASHINGTON NOTES
The Hurricanes and the Capitals meet for the first of six 2003-04 meetings, and the first of two games between the clubs this week as Washington travels south to Raleigh for a Saturday evening match at the RBC Center. Following this two-game set between the teams – interrupted by home meetings against Atlanta on Thursday for Carolina and against Tampa Bay on Friday for Washington – will meet four more times between Jan. 9 and Feb. 25 to round out the divisional series.

The Capitals won the 2002-03 five-game set between the clubs, 4-1-0-0. Ron Francis (3g, 0a), Josef Vasicek (2g, 1a), Jeff O’Neill (1g, 2a) and Jan Hlavac (1g, 2a) led the Hurricanes in scoring against Washington last season with three points each in the five-game set. The Hurricanes are 28-48-13-1 all-time against the Capitals, including a 15-21-9-1 home mark and a 13-27-4-0 record in Washington.
