Every time I see World B on press row he always asks two questions: what’s my guess on what the crowd size will be and how are the Canes going to do. When I said with full confidence the Canes are going to take this one he replied, “Isn’t this the team we spotted a three-goal lead in the third period earlier in the season and wound up losing the game?” Yes, I said, but no worries, we’ve got this one.

Cam Ward earned his second shot out of the season, on another 1-0 score, this time against the Bolts.
After a disappointing week in Canada, with one win and the break of what was the longest current winning streak in the NHL, the Carolina Hurricanes found their winning ways against the Florida Panthers, falling behind by two goals then came back with a strong second period performance for a 3-2 win.
The Carolina Hurricanes extended their NHL leading win streak to four games with a hard fought 3-1 win against the Winnipeg Jets to close out their five game home stand. Both Elias Lindholm and Noah Hanifin scored their first goals of the season with Victor Rask scoring his team leading eighth marker of the season.
It took forever for the Carolina Hurricanes to win back-to-back games and now they’re tied for current longest winning streak in the NHL at three games.
The Carolina Hurricanes beat last season’s Stanley Cup runner-up, the San Jose Sharks, in a tight 1-0 win with the winning goal coming from Joakim Nordstrom midway in the third period with Cam Ward notching his 24th career shutout.
The Carolina Hurricanes played their best game of the season against a top team in the Metropolitan Division, the Washington Capitals, winning in a dominant fashion, 5-1 in front of a loud crowd on Saturday November 12 at the PNC Arena.
The Carolina Hurricanes started a 5 game home stand on the losing end of a 4-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday, November 10 at the PNC Arena before a very sparse crowd.
Whether it was a hangover effect from their first shootout win in forever with a 3-2 victory in Nashville less than 24 hours earlier or sluggish for a late Sunday afternoon game, the Carolina Hurricanes put in a weak performance in a 4-1 loss against the New Jersey Devils.
No loss is considered a good loss but Sunday’s loss by a score of 4-3 to the Philadelphia Flyers was nothing short of disappointing. There were bright spots: the Rask-Skinner-Stempniak line continues to produce, fourth liner Viktor Stalberg notched his first goal of the season and Ron Hainsey played his usual no-nonsense-in-your-face defense.
