Since knocking the Bruins from the playoffs in 2009, the Carolina Hurricanes have had Boston’s number.
The Canes swept the Black and Gold last season, taking all four meetings between the teams, and will look to hand Boston its first regulation loss of 2013 on Monday night in Raleigh.
“We know they play hard, especially at home,” Bruins forward Chris Kelly said. “We have to be at our best tonight. I think if we try to limit our mistakes and play together, we’ll have hopefully a better outcome than we’ve had in the past against these guys.”
The B’s come in with a 3-0-1 record, and will start 26-year-old Anton Khudobin in net to give Tuukka Rask a night off.
