Hurricanes 2009-10 Season Schedule Released

RALEIGH, NC—The National Hockey League today released the 2009-10 regular-season schedules for its 30 member clubs. The Carolina Hurricanes’ 82-game regular-season campaign will begin on Friday, Oct. 2, at the RBC Center against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Following the opener, the Hurricanes will pay a visit to their 2009 Eastern Conference Semifinal opponents, the Boston Bruins, on Oct. 3 at the TD Banknorth Garden in the first of seven October road games. The Hurricanes’ five-game home schedule in October includes an Oct. 15 meeting against the 2009 Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins, and visits from Southeast Division rivals Tampa Bay and Florida.

The Hurricanes begin the season’s second month with a 1:30 p.m. matinee at the RBC Center on Sunday, Nov. 1, against the San Jose Sharks. Carolina’s nine-game home schedule in November is highlighted by two games against the Toronto Maple Leafs, visits from Western Conference foes Los Angeles and Minnesota, as well as division rivals Atlanta, Tampa Bay and Washington.

The team’s December schedule begins on Saturday, Dec. 5, when the Vancouver Canucks will visit Raleigh for the first time in more than two years. The Hurricanes then will embark on a four-game road trip to Pittsburgh, New Jersey, Washington and Ottawa, before returning to Raleigh to play six of their final eight December games at the RBC Center. The Hurricanes will host their traditional New Year’s Eve game on Dec. 31, this year against the New York Rangers in the front half of a home-and-home set between the clubs.

Carolina will play seven home games in January, including a Martin Luther King Day game against Tampa Bay on Jan. 18, and a visit from 2009 Western Conference runners up, the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Hurricanes will go on the road for four games to start the month of February, traveling to Edmonton, Calgary, Buffalo and Long Island. Carolina’s final three games before the NHL’s two-week break for the Winter Olympic Games will bring Florida, Buffalo and New Jersey to the RBC Center.

Carolina’s busiest month will come in March when it plays 16 games in 30 days from March 2 to March 31, including a four-game home stand against Pittsburgh, Phoenix, Boston and Washington. The Hurricanes finish March and welcome April with back-to-back road games at Montreal on March 31 and at Ottawa on April 1. Carolina’s final home game will take place on April 8 against the Canadiens, and the Hurricanes will wrap up the 2009-10 campaign on April 10 at Boston.

In all, the Hurricanes will play 16 sets of back-to-back games during the 2009-10 regular season, all of which involve travel. Of Carolina’s 41 games at the RBC Center, 21 will take place on Fridays (6), Saturdays (10) and Sundays (5),
