Hurricanes draw only 7,892 fans for 2nd home game

The attendance for the Carolina Hurricanes' first two home games of the season has been a tale of day and night.

After the club bested the Minnesota Wild in front of a capacity crowd of 18,680 inside PNC Arena on Saturday night, the Hurricanes followed that up with a 2-1 overtime loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets in front of just 7,892 spectators.

Of course, the sudden drop shouldn't come as much of a surprise. Last season, the Hurricanes' average attendance was 11,776, which equated to 63 percent capacity, the lowest mark in the league.
