Canes Tame Wild, 3-1

Cary, NC – Eric Staal and his Minnesota Wild team are one of the top teams in the west and if they win their game against the Canes, they would have leap frogged Chicago as the top team in the west. This was EStaal’s second trip to the PNC Arena wearing a visitor’s uniform, the first being last year shortly after he was traded to the NY Rangers with the Canes winning that game 4-1. Once again, the Canes beat EStaal’s team, this time by a 3-1 score. Read more

Islanders Get Revenge in 3-2 OT Win Against Canes

Cary, NC – The Carolina Hurricanes and NY Islanders played the back end of a home-and-home series Tuesday at the PNC Arena after a wild 8-4 Canes win the night before.

Leafs Beat Canes 3-2 in OT

Cary, NC – The Carolina Hurricanes last game at home against the Toronto Maple Leafs was a poor outing in a 4-0 loss so both pride, and possibly a few words from the coaching staff, would hopefully have a different outcome. The effort was certainly there but the execution came just that short as the Canes lost 3-2 in overtime. Read more

Canes Rebound, Beat Rangers 4-3 on Aho’s Two Late Goals

Cary, NC – The Carolina Hurricanes had a forgetful two-game road trip out west, losing to two of the worst teams in the NHL, only to return to the PNC Arena to beat the New York Rangers 4-3 in an exciting game Thursday, March 9, 2017.

Hurricanes Lose Playoffs Chances Over the Weekend

Cary, NC – While the Carolina Hurricanes got one victory over the weekend, their chances of going to the playoffs melted with one loss too many on Sunday. Read more

Canes Come Up Short Against Penguins, 3-1

Cary, NC – The Carolina Hurricanes lost to the defending Stanley Cup Champions, the Pittsburgh Penguins, 3-1 for their fifth straight loss and dimming the light on any chance of making the wild card spot for the playoffs. The light isn’t completely turned off but unless the Canes can put together a long string of wins coupled with a long string of losses by seven teams above them, the Canes will miss the playoffs again this year. GM Ron Francis has to be entertaining offers for several players such as Ron Hainsey, Lee Stempniak, Jay McClement, Viktor Stalberg and even Justin Faulk. Read more

Canes Continue Home Dominance in 2-1 Win Over Oilers

Cary, NC – The Caniacs finally got to see second year phenom, Connor McDavid and he’s everything, and more, that’s been written about him. Even during warmups, he was impressive: his speed is second to none, he’s strong, big, as accurate as a shooter as you’ll fine and can pick his spot like a sniper a mile away.

The Canes held on after an early leady for a tight 2-1 win over the same franchise they won the Stanley Cup over back in 2006. Cam Ward was on the ice then and was on the ice now as, I believe, the lone player from both teams still with their team. Read more
