NBCSN’s coverage of the 2020-21 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs continues with Tuesday’s Game 2 matchup between the Carolina Hurricanes and Tampa Bay Lightning. Hurricanes-Lightning stream coverage begins at 7 p.m. ET on NBCSN. You can watch the game online and on the NBC Sports app by clicking here.
Solving the Tampa netminder will be key for Carolina if they’re to even the series in Game 2 before everything shifts to AMALIE Arena for Games 3 and 4 later this week.
“If you’re getting your chances, then eventually you’ll get something. We know he’s good,” said Hurricanes head coach Rod Brind’Amour. “Just keep pounding the rock. There’s always ways to get better. We’re going to have to find a way.”
Brind’Amour said he is contemplating changes for Game 2 as Carolina hopes to reverse the trend of allowing the first goal in six of their first seven playoff games.
Jon Cooper will continue to rely on his veterans to use their postseason experience in tight games like they managed to close out in Game 1.
“This group over the past couple of years has really acquired that, and probably why we’ve had some success,” he said.
