NHL Stadium Series 2023: How to watch Hurricanes vs. Capitals, channel, live stream, start time

The 2023 NHL Stadium Series heads to North Carolina as the Carolina Hurricanes and Washington Capitals play outdoors at Carter Finley Stadium in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Not only is the Hurricanes hosting an outdoor game for the first time in franchise history, it’s also the first time they’ve played it. On the other hand, the Capitals have been in this position several times before. This will be their fourth outdoor game appearance and they have hosted two.

When the Hurricanes and Capitals take to the ice on the NC State campus, they will do so in jerseys specially designed for this event. The Carolinas will look all black, with Washington opting to place its complementary ‘wiggle’ logo on the front of the jersey.

The Hurricanes are one of the hottest teams in the NHL going into this game, and they will be looking to maintain their lead in the Capital Division. The Capitals are in a skid but still hold the bottom spot in the Eastern Conference. Even without Alex Ovechkin mourning the death of his father, Washington will be desperate to score two big points in the playoff race.

Players to watch

Martin Necas, right winger, Carolina Hurricanes: Necas is in his fourth full season with the Hurricanes, and the 24-year-old has taken a big step forward in his development. Necas has already set a new career high in goals (21) and points (47) and only needs two assists to set a new record in this category. Necas has excelled in the extended role and is one of the funniest players to watch when Karolina is in action.

Darcy Kemper, goaltender, Washington Capitals: The Capitals will be the clear underdogs in this game, especially with the expected elimination of Alex Ovechkin. That means Kemper is likely to have a big workload against a Hurricanes dominating a five-on-five game. By winning the Stanley Cup with the Avalanche last season, Kemper provided the Caps with consistent goaltending and will need to shine on Saturday.

Brent Burns, defenseman, Carolina Hurricanes: Burns, 37, was traded to the Hurricanes during the off-season, and the change of scenery helped fuel his resurgence. Burns has scored 11 goals and 27 assists this season, with Carolina in control of a five-on-five game with him on the ice. In addition to exceptional play, Burns has one of the best personalities and the best beard in the league.
