Game 6: Carolina Hurricanes (2-3) vs. Ottawa Senators (5-1-1)

35 posts in this topic

Big game tonight, the Sens are without Spezza and the Canes have had Ottawa's number the past two seasons and they need to have it tonight to stay in the hunt for the top 8.

Ottawa is still a great team and actually the best team in the NHL's Eastern Conference with the hottest goal tender in hockey right now in Craig Anderson. This test will truly tell the Canes where they stand among the NHL's finest.

I advise you not to look at the standings unless you have to because the Canes are currently really close to the bottom, however we have played the least amount of games in the NHL. Back to back wins against the Senstors and Flyers would put us right back in the drivers seat.

News and Notes

Dan Ellis gets the start in net tonight.

Justin Faulk is back in the line up tonight.

Joe Corvo is also in the lineup tonight.

Bobby Sanguinetti is a heathy scratch.

Andreas Nodl will see his first action with the Canes tonight on the fourth line with Chad LaRose and Tim Brent.

Pat Dwyer will be bumped up to the third line with Jiri Tlusty and Jussi Jokinen.

Kevin Westgarth is a healthy scratch tonight.

Jussi Jokinen has been bumped to the top line on the power play and Jordan Staal will lead the second power play unit.

Go Canes!!!

I have barely heard of any of the Sen players, yet they are such a dangerous team.

    • elton simpson was monitored over a 9 year period (fbi claims there were breaks but at the least there were still years of monitoring) and at least $132,000 in cash was spent on one informant alone. here's the fbi's version in the immediate aftermath of the shooting:   Three hours before gunmen attacked an anti-Prophet Muhammad event in Garland, Texas on Sunday, the FBI sent a bulletin to local police with a photo of one of the shooters, Elton Simpson, noting that he was "interested in the event," FBI director James Comey said. At the time, the FBI had no reason to believe that Simpson intended to attack the event, Comey told reporters Thursday. Nor did the agency know that Simpson was already on his way there. Comey also said that he does not believe that the police officer who shot Simpson and the second gunman, Soofi Nadir, was aware of the bulletin. He went on to say that while the investigation of the Phoenix gunmen is far from complete, Comey believes the FBI acted appropriately. ..... Two weeks before the Garland event, which invited artists to draw illustrations of Muhammad, the FBI and Homeland Security warned law enforcement agencies across the country that it was at risk of being targeted by Islamic extremists. The advisory noted that supporters of ISIS and other terror groups had posted links to the contest on Twitter. Simpson was reading those posts, and communicated with an American in Somalia who'd called for attacking the event, investigators have said. The FBI then developed information that Simpson might be interested in traveling to Garland, Comey said. The Sunday bulletin followed. ..... The FBI now has hundreds of investigations of potential home grown extremists under way, with cases open in every state. "I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there," Comey said. Finding them, however, is a "very hard task," he said. Investigators can follow messages that are posted on public twitter accounts. But ISIS recruiters are steering people off Twitter into encrypted forums, which the government cannot see, Comey said. "Its the old going-dark problem, in living color," said Comey. He added: "We have hundreds working on it around the clock. But in almost every case of violence, someone saw something. A friend, a family member. Its more important than ever for people to speak up."     ^^^just a reminder for the bolded parts that a federal agent was in the car directly behind them as they opened their doors and began their short lived attack
    • Looks like it has potential. BvS was terrible. I will say the extended version was a better film but still not good. Suicide Squad was one of the worst films I've seen in a while.  That said of course I will waste my money and go see this. I hope they bring back Batman's more cunning qualities in future films. I got the sense that in BvS he was a what you see is what you get type of guy. You don't get the feeling that he has something up his sleeve at all times. Which was something Nolan/Bale had, almost Bond-esque.
    • Saw it the other night and found it surprisingly decent. The acting was pretty damn good for a power rangers movie. Obvious plot holes are obvious and the plot advances before it's ready at times but it's not a bad movie. I thought the suits were cool but the zords looked terrible and the megazord was hideous. Would have been better off copying the original one tit for tat.
