Hurricanes at Jets

Hey there, time traveller!

Carolina rolls into Winnipeg after playing in Chicago on Friday night. The is the last of nine occasions in which the Jets play host to a team playing the second of games on back-to-back nights. The Jets are 4-4 in those games.

The Canes will play 20 sets of back-to-back games this season. Only New Jersey, with 22, has more. Carolina is 4-10-3 in the back halves thus far.

Canes netminder Anton Khudobin made a career-high 46 saves in Tuesday's 3-1 win over Columbus, a game in which Carolina was outshot 19-0 in the third period -- a first for the franchise since March 6, 2006.

Carolina is led by Eric Staal and Jeff Skinner offensively, but defenceman Andrej Sekera is quietly having a fantastic season. Sekera has already established career highs for goals (11), assists (30) and points (41) in a season and is among the NHL's top 10 defencemen in scoring.
