Carolina Hurricanes Playoff Tickets

Carolina Hurricanes Playoff tickets

Carolina Hurricanes History

The history of the Carolina Hurricanes franchise dates back to 1972 when the New England Whalers first joined the NHL. The New England Whalers played in Boston, but after having difficulty scheduling games in the city and splitting their home games between two arenas the team relocated to Hartford, Connecticut in 1979 and became the Hartford Whalers. However, Hartford had long been the smallest market team in the league and therefore suffered financially, prompting the team to move to Raleigh, North Carolina in the late Nineties. Since moving to North Carolina in 1997, the Hurricanes have been a prominent team in the NHL, giving their fans some big-time thrills over the years. Formerly the Hartford Whalers, the Hurricanes have a strong fan following and are always competitive thanks to a steady stream of talent that comes through their roster.

About the Team

The Hurricanes are currently in seventh place in the Metropolitan Division of the Eastern Conference, and while a playoff berth seems unlikely, there is still hope that the team can finish strong and stay ahead of the New York Islanders who sit just behind them in the division standings. There is definitely an outside chance that the Canes could catch and pass the Capitals or the Devils and secure a playoff spot but that will take some serious work and perhaps a bit of help. The Canes' offense has sputtered a bit this season but there have been some highlights, including the play of center Eric Staal who leads the team in points and assists as well as leading goal scorer Jeff Skinner. Now is the time to show your support of the Carolina Hurricanes as they enter the all important stretch run of the regular season. PNC Arena tickets are in high demand during hockey season, and for good reason... seeing the Canes at the PNC Arena is an absolute must, as Canes fans know how to show up in droves to prove their passion and support for their favorite team.

The Experience

Hockey fans in general are some of the most passionate sports fans around, but nothing quite matches the fanaticism surrounding the NHL playoffs and fans of the Carolina Hurricanes are some of the most dedicated and vociferous fans in the entire NHL. On game day at PNC Arena the fans file in and take their seats and that is when the cheering and chanting begins. As the clock winds down closer and closer to the dropping of the puck the crowd works itself into a frenzy. Finally both teams are ready for face off and the excitement really begins. Thunderous, bone rattling hits, incredible displays of speed and agility, powerful slapshots, and tremendous saves set the arena on fire for the following three periods of world class college hockey. By the time the final buzzer sounds your voice is hoarse and your palms are stinging from clapping and giving high fives and you will already be planning a return trip. Everything is ratcheted up a notch during the NHL playoffs and the further teams advance the more intense the competition becomes. If you thought regular season NHL games were exciting, just wait until you experience an NHL playoff game live and in person.

NHL Eastern Conference Metropolitan Division

The Metropolitan Division is comprised of eight teams: the Carolina Hurricanes, the Columbus Blue Jackets, the New Jersey Devils, the New York Islanders, the New York Rangers, the Philadelphia Flyers, the Pittsburgh Penguins, and the Washington Capitals. Many of the teams in the division are among the top franchises in the history of the NHL and four of the eight teams are located in either New York City area or in Pennsylvania. The 2013-2014 season is the first for the Metropolitan Division which was formed due to the realignment of the NHL. The majority of the teams came to the Metropolitan Division from the Atlantic Division, including the New Jersey Devils, the New York Islanders, the New York Rangers, the Philadelphia Flyers, and the Pittsburgh Penguins. Meanwhile the Washington Capitals and the Carolina Hurricanes came from the Southeast Division and the Columbus Blue Jackets joined from the Central Division. It is home to some of the biggest rivalries in the league including that between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Washington Capitals and the one between the New York Rangers and the New York Islanders. The Metropolitan Division is currently the only division in the NHL without a Canadian Team.


Three former Carolina Hurricanes players have had their jerseys retired: Glen Wesley, Bob Brind'Amour, and Ron Francis. Rob Brind'Amour is the only player of the three who never played for the Hartford Whalers. After moving from Hartford to Carolina, the franchise unretired two numbers, number 2 of Rick Ley and number 19 for John McKenzie. The number 9 of Gordie Howe has not been returned to circulation and although it is not hanging in PNC Arena, is considered unofficially retired.
