If your favorite NHL team plays the Carolina Hurricanes on a Thursday night, hope for an upset. The Canes boast an impressive 8-1 record this season when hitting the ice on Thursdays, making it their most successful day of the week.

Through 55 games, Carolina sits second in the Metropolitan Division with 71 points. Hockey-Reference.com gives them a 98.8% chance of clinching their sixth straight Stanley Cup Playoffs berth. But Thursday night dominance does not tell the full story of this dangerous squad.

Hurricanes Dominate Multiple Days

The Canes rack up wins across multiple days. They post a .750 win percentage on Fridays and a .636 percentage on Mondays. Even on their worst day, Sundays, they play barely below .500 hockey with a .200 win rate.

Check the chart below for a full breakdown of Carolina’s 2023-24 record by day of the week:

Day of the Week – Record – Win Percentage Monday – 7-4 – .636 Tuesday – 2-4 – .333
Wednesday – 2-1 – .667 Thursday – 8-1 – .889 Friday – 6-2 – .750 Saturday – 7-6 – .538 Sunday – 1-4 – .200

The team still has 27 regular season games ahead. Thursday night matchups make up the biggest share with 7 contests remaining. The Canes also have 6 Sunday games left to improve their record on that day.

Primed for Postseason Run

As the regular season winds down, the outlook remains positive for a deep playoff push. The Canes face tough Thursday night battles in the weeks ahead, starting on February 23 against the red-hot Florida Panthers. The Atlantic Division leaders ride a six-game winning streak into Carolina.

Rod Brind’Amour’s squad also hosts Montreal, Florida again, Philadelphia, Detroit and Boston on upcoming Thursday nights. These contests allow Canes fans plenty of opportunities to use North Carolina sports betting apps and wager on their hometown team.
