The Carolina Hurricanes won an interesting game against the hottest team in the NHL this season, the Columbus Blue Jackets in a 5-3 win Tuesday night.
Nearly 12,000 brave souls trekked out to the PNC Arena on Sunday to watch the Canes and Bruins make it three for three in games going into overtime this season with the home team winning each time. The youngsters of Teuvo Teravainen and Sebastian Aho worked their magic to secure the desperately needed two points for the Canes in the overtime.
With the Holidays just over and hearing so many holiday songs on the radio over and over again, one reminds me of the way the Canes played earlier this season as well as last night. In the song about the Grinch That Stole Christmas, one line says it all: Stink, Stank, Stunk.
The Carolina Hurricanes not only beat the current best team in the Western Conference, the Chicago Blackhawks, they did so in a come from behind 3-2 win and extended their impressive home streak to 11 games without a regulation loss with a 10-0-1 mark.
Santa Claus was in the house, sounded the siren to start the game and helped the Canes give an early Christmas present to the larger than normal crowd of Caniacs as the Hurricanes pulled out a victory after playing flat for the first 45 minutes of the game. The win extended the home point streak to 10 games.
They played well enough to win, and if a shot here or there is half-inch lower here or there, we’d be looking for the Canes ninth home win streak tonight.
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.
