The New Jersey Devils take on the Carolina Hurricanes in the conference semifinals of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. This matchup has turned into something of a playoff rivalry in the 21st century, as the two teams have faced off four times in the playoffs. It’s been a while since the two teams have seen each other on the ice in the postseason, though.

Last time they faced off in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Hurricanes won 4-3 in the first round. Before that, the Hurricanes beat the Devils 4-1 in conference semifinals in 2006 — the same year that they went on to win the Stanley Cup Final. They also played in the first round in 2001 and 2002, with the Devils taking the first, 4-2, and the ‘Canes taking the second, also 4-2.

In the 2022-23 regular season, the two teams faced off four times, with the Devils having a 2-1-1 record. Carolina won the first two matchups, and the Devils took home the later two. The second round series starts on Wednesday, May 3.
