The good Carolina Hurricanes are coming home from Tampa with an impressive win on Tuesday night. The Canes looked like a team who could beat anyone with a strong and powerful showing out the gate through to the finish line. When these guys play a full 60 minutes, we win... they just need to focus on doing that more often (next season). Harrison was a beast tonight... won a fight against Ryan Malone, too. Marty St. Louis was held scoreless for the first time in 10 games (ended his point streak at 9).
Goals: Tlusty (2), Ruutu, Brent, Harrison. Assists: Staal (3), Ruutu (2), Stewart, Harrison, Faulk, Tlusty.
WIN: Wardo LOSS: Garon
Stops-SOG: Ward - 34-36, Garon - 5-8, Roloson - 22-24
Penalties: CAR 3 (Harrison (1 + fighting), Staal) TB 2 (Malone (fighting), St. Louis)
My 3 stars:
HM: Samson. This guy looks great in the new Muller System. Undrafted Jerome Samson should be a full-time Cane next season (the new LaRose?).
