Game 30: Carolina Hurricanes (15-12-2) vs. New Jersey Devils (13-11-6)

61 posts in this topic

The Carolina Hurricanes are back at it tonight as they take on the New Jersey Devils at PNC Arena. The Hurricanes are currently in a slump that has them playing their worst hockey of the year. Luckily for them they will get an important body back in Tuomo Ruutu as most of the players on the offensive end are injury free. However, the Canes have had a huge set back on the defensive end with Justin Faulk and Joe Corvo both going down. Brett Bellemore will step in and get his first taste of NHL action in place for Faulk tonight.

The Canes will roll with the following lineup...

Jiri Tlusty - Eric Staal - Alexander Semin

Jeff Skinner - Jordan Staal - Patrick Dwyer

Drayson Bowman - Riley Nash - Jussi Jokinen

Tuomo Ruutu - Tim Brent - Adam Hall

Jay Harrison - Tim Gleason

Joni Pitkanen - Jamie McBain

Bobby Sanguinetti - Brett Bellemore

Dan Ellis

Justin Peters

Inactive: Kevin Westgarth, Tim Wallace, Zach Boychuk

Injured: Joe Corvo (lower body), Chad LaRose (concussion), Justin Faulk (knee), Cam Ward (knee)

As far as the Devils are concerned, they will get their number one goaltender back tonight, Martin Broudeur. However, they will be without Dainus Zubrus and possibly Alexei Ponikarovsky and Andrei Loktionov.

Go Canes!!!

There should be a new rule where if the puck goes out of the offensive zone while a penalty is called against the defense, then the whistle blows.

    • Elbows too pointy. Would not bang.
    • On the surface this team seems greatly improved but in reality we added a geriatric at DE and SS. Our LT is bad enough that the Vikings thought getting Remmers in return was an upgrade, and our greatly improved offense includes a rookie RB who dominated the 5th best college conference and a hybrid RB/WR who isn't good enough to stick at either position. That being said, I'm hopeful it works out.
    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard or 2-guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history, and that has to really suck as a hardcore fan.
