Faulk’s Hat Trick Leads Canes Over Kings, 7-3

Some nights everything seems to go right and some nights everything seems to go wrong.  On the eve of Valentine’s Day, everything went right for the Carolina Hurricanes as they pummeled the L.A. Kings 7-3 behind Justin’s Faulk’s first career hat trick along with Jeff Skinner popping in two pretty goals. 

Canes Snap Skid, Sweep Both Games Over the Weekend

It took just 14 seconds for the Carolina Hurricanes to score a five-on-five goal in what seemed like forever when Brett Pesce put in his second of the season establishing a new record for the fastest goal in the franchise by a defenseman. With back to back games this weekend, coach Bill Peters selected Scott Darling to be in the net with the Canucks at this point of the season, are the weaker of the two teams plus the Canucks best player got hurt the night before in Tampa Bay.

Canes Drop Crucial Game to Flyers in OT, 2-1

If ever this season there was a time to step up, the game against the Philadelphia Flyers was it. The Flyers were just a point ahead of the Canes with both teams just outside of a playoff spot. Whoever wins leapfrogs into the mix, but it just wasn’t the Canes night as they scored just one goal for the third straight game.

Vegas Deal Canes Big Loss

The newest team in the NHL, the Las Vegas Golden Knights, entered the game as “the best in the west” and left the game as “best in the NHL” as they beat the Carolina Hurricanes, 5-1, in a game the Canes were never in from the drop of the puck.

Canes Lose 5-4 in OT But Make Playoff Wildcard Spot

The Carolina Hurricanes lost in overtime, 5-4, against the Washington Capitals but the mysterious extra point allowed the Canes to get into wildcard spot for the playoffs. The Canes and Caps will seem like they’re in the playoffs now as they’ll see each other three times in the next 11 days. If tonight’s game was any indication of the next two, those should be physical and entertaining games.
