Admittedly I’m an Eric Staal fan, but more so since covering the team for CaryCitizen. One benefit of press row is being up high to have the ability to watch plays form while concentrating on one player at the same time. What Staal does off the puck is very impressive.

The Carolina Hurricanes finally got a win against the Winnipeg Jets this season in a 2-1 squeaker at the RBC Center, January 23, 2012.
The Washington Capitals have owned the Carolina Hurricanes over the past two seasons with the Canes having only one win, in a shootout no less. The teams played just 5 days ago with the Canes reeling off that loss as they felt they should have won. On Friday night at RBC Center, the Canes triumphed 3-0.
With the Bruins being the defending Stanley Cup champions and with the season they are now having, their fans came out in force. When they started to chant ‘Let’s Go Bruins’, the Caniacs drowned them with ‘Let’s Go Canes’. Most everyone joined in a Bronx cheer when one idiot wearing a Bruin sweater made an obscene gesture while being shown on the Jumbotron.

Cary-lina, NC – The Carolina Hurricanes failed to even up the season series when the Philadelphia Flyers won a hard-fought battle 2-1, at the RBC Center January 10, 2012. The Canes have been playing well at home going 5-1-1 in the last 7 games, 10-10-3 overall.
The Carolina Hurricanes beat the Buffalo Sabres 4-2 behind Eric Staal’s goal and 2 assists in a loud RBC Arena on January 6, 2012.
The Carolina Hurrianes hosted the NY Islanders for the first game in 2012 with the hopes of repeating last season’s sweep in the head to head series. Bad news is they lost, 4-3 in a shootout, but on the positive side they’ve now gone 13 straight games against the Islanders without a regulation loss going 10-0-3.
Eric Staal scored his second goal of the game 3:09 in overtime to lead the Carolina Hurricanes past the Toronto Maple Leafs, 4-3 at the RBC Center December 29, 2011. It was the Canes third consecutive victory at home and second in overtime.
Santa Claus was good to the Carolina Hurricanes this past holiday week with an OT win over Ottawa and a victory over the Devils.
This one hurt. The Canes were up 3-1, wildly outshooting the Coyotes before eventually falling to the visitors 4-3. Another third period with mental and physical breakdowns and a lack of defensive coverage.
