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. 

Canes Win Streak Now At Four With 2-1 Win Over Penguins

With Cam Ward in goal again, the Carolina Hurricanes came from behind and beat the Pittsburgh Penguins, 2-1, at a nearly full PNC Arena Friday night.

Canes Win Streak At Three With 2-1 Win Over Blue Jackets

With any luck, the first time for three wins in a row may be the turning point for the Canes.

Canes Have Solid Win in 3-2 OT Win Over Panthers
