Recommended Posts

I also mention Justin Williams without a doubt got the loudest cheer from the fans last night during player intros. 

Followed by Faulk, Skinner, Aho, and Slavin.

The Canes have gone streaking for the first time this season.

Carolina beats Calgary 2-1 to move to 3-1-1 (7 points) on the season; perfect pace for the playoffs.

BREAKING: The Carolina Hurricanes still can't score goals, still have a leaky defense despite the emergence of Jaccob Slavin, their PP is still abysmal, and the coaching still questionable. I really doubt this team makes the playoffs yet again this year, especially in our murderer's row of a division. Sucks to suck.

Canes win 6-3. 

I think people forget what a long season the NHL has. We're going to be fine. We looked good. We're going to have down nights, but as long as we have fewer of those than in years past, we'll be in a position to compete for a playoff spot. I mean, we just beat a team that is currently 2nd in the Eastern Conference. In Toronto, no less. 

We're middle of the road in both PP and PK%, but we're top 10 in shots per game and shots allowed per game, winning right at 50% of our faceoffs. We're not scoring a LOT of goals, but we're not giving up a lot either. So, defense is limiting shots, goalies are limiting goals on those shots that do get off, and we're putting enough goals in the net to get points in the standings more than half the time. 

We'll improve as the season moves along (hopefully). We're fine until we're not. Still early, we'll know better closer to Christmas.
