The 2014-15 season has been a struggle for the Carolina Hurricanes, as the team is near the bottom of the NHL standings. Having said that, there are still a few Hurricanes games worth watching for as the season winds down in 2015.

Minnesota is a struggling squad too, so the Canes have at least a decent chance of getting two points on the road in Minneapolis. Also, star defenseman Justin Faulk is a Minnesota native, and I'm sure he'll be at his best for his "homecoming".

Despite the fact both teams will be vying for a lower seed to get a decent spot in the draft lottery by this time, no player on either team will have quit. Look for the Hurricanes to match Philly's intensity in this Tuesday night matchup.

The Blackhawks are one of the elite teams in the league, and the "Madhouse on Madison" will be rocking for this Monday night tilt. Carolina will need to contain the Hawks' dynamic duo of Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews if they wish to pull off the road upset.

The Rangers, led by sniper Rick Nash, will be rolling towards the playoffs when they visit Raleigh for a Saturday night showdown. It'll also be the last matchup of the season for the Staal family as Eric and Jordan faceoff against their brother Marc, a Rangers defenseman.

The Wings come to Raleigh to wrap up the regular season as the Hurricanes look to end a miserable campaign on a good note. As the last game of the season, it'll mean the team can stop worrying about games and focus on the draft and rebuilding the roster.
