Canes Blow Out Kings, 6-1

Cary, NC – It was Justin Williams’ showcase night with the Canes playing the L. A. Kings, the other team Willie won the Stanley Cup with. In fact, he won two Cups with the Kings. Willie has the respect of every player throughout the NHL and the Canes came out dominating the early play getting off four shots in the first four minutes before the Kings got one on Petr Mrazek.

The Kings had a little deja vu going on as they played in Tampa Bay the night before and got behind 2-0, as they did in Tampa Bay, in the first on goals by Dougie Hamilton and Sebastian Aho. Read more

Canes Blow Opportunity for Playoff Spot, Lose to Rangers 2-1

Cary, NC – The opportunity was there, playing a team far below them in the standings and no chance to make the playoffs, but the Canes couldn’t figure out how to get more than one past future Hall of Famer, Henrik Lundqvist. The King was on his game and not acting like a 36-year-old goalie should act. He was athletic, agile, sharp with the blocker, good with the catching glove and rarely gave up a rebound.

Senators Sink Canes, 4-1

Cary, NC – The Canes had made a great run towards the wild card spot in the playoffs with seven wins in eight games coming within three points to cross That Line. A week ago, looking at the schedule seeing they were playing the NY Rangers and Ottawa Senators, I thought, “Hey, with any luck of Buffalo and Pittsburgh losing their games, the Canes could cross That Line, then be in a unique position of staying above the line.”

Little did I predict they would play two of their most lackluster games of the season back to back. First the Rangers thumped the Canes in NY, 6-2. The Ottawa game had everything going for them, including the Canes unbeaten in regulation streak while in their sharp looking black sweaters, but the Senators prevailed, 4-1.
