Game Recap

The Carolina Hurricanes (10-8-1) put together their best game of the season so far as they clubbed the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-1. The game was not even close as the Canes outworked the Penguins in all facets of the game. Tonight, the big four added one more to the group as Jiri Tlusty joins Eric Staal, Jordan Staal, Alexander Semin, and Jeff Skinner as a core part of this team. Tlusty potted two goals and Eric Staal and Skinner added the others. With a healthy team, the Hurricanes are easily a top five team in the NHL's Eastern Conference, so here's to staying healthy and racking up some more wins in the process.

Tlusty/Staal/Semin line is MONEY. Skinner being back should hopefully mean Tlusty stays put.
