What: Carolina Hurricanes vs. New York Islanders

Where: PNC Arena (Raleigh, North Carolina)

When: 7:00 P.M.

The Canes are coming off of an emotional win as Manny Malhotra scored the game winning goal against Philadelphia in OT. Malhotra suffered a serious eye injury awhile back when he was with Vancouver, but he has fought his way back up to the NHL and has been a breath of fresh air for this Canes team.

As far as the game goes, the Canes can get right back in the playoff picture with a win tonight over the Islanders.

Jiri Tlusty - Eric Staal - Alexander Semin

Nathan Gerbe - Jordan Staal - Tuomo Ruutu

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
