RALEIGH, N.C. — This looks familiar to Carolina: The Hurricanes bouncing back from a lopsided Game 1 loss to wrest home-ice advantage from a higher-seeded opponent in Game 2.

This time, they'd like to keep it.

The Hurricanes gave back a home-ice edge in their last series before rallying to advance to Round 2.

Now they're hoping to do a better job of protecting their arena Wednesday night when their best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal series with Boston shifts to Raleigh for Game 3.

"You have to learn and you have to build your confidence. When you're a confident team, you're more resolved," Carolina coach Paul Maurice said Monday, less than 24 hours after his team evened its series with the Bruins at one game apiece with a 3-0 win.
