Game 52: Carolina Hurricanes (23-19-9) vs. Columbus Blue Jackets (26-21-4)

Recommended Posts

I haven't made one of these threads in a while but I figured that the biggest game of the year deserves it... plus we have a CBJ fan on the board as well.


What: Carolina Hurricanes vs. Columbus Blue Jackets

When: 7:00 P.M.

Where: PNC Arena (Raleigh, North Carolina)

Last 10: CAR: 7-3, CBJ: 8-2


In what is the biggest game for the Hurricanes this season, they are at home taking on the Blue Jackets; a team that always seems to have their number. The Canes are coming off a six goal effort against the Senators, eerily enough; the last time they (the Canes) put up six goals they were shut out the next game by none other than the Columbus Blue Jackets.


However, it appears that this game may be different, Muller has finally found a combination of forwards that is generating offense and it all starts with the big line of Tlusty, E. Staal, and Semin. The key in tonight's game will be the play of the third pairing defense of Jay Harrison and Mike Komisarek who have really struggled as of late, if they can keep Dubinsky's and Letestu's lines of the score sheet then the Canes will win.


If the Canes can get the win in regulation tonight, they will jump Philadelphia and Columbus in the standings giving them third place in the Metro division.


Here's to a Canes Win!!!

That's almost the perfect lineup honestly. Just about all the guys that should be on the active roster are on it. Kinda like Murphy over Harrison though. And Dwyer, when healthy, over Bowman. Other than that, great lineup.
