Canes End 2019 With 3-1 Win Over Canadiens

It was exactly a year ago, New Year’s Eve, when the Canes beat the Flyers 3-1 to start their surge for the playoffs.

Canes Rebound With 4-2 Win Over Panthers

In a reversal of their previous game in which they went up with two early goals, the Canes found themselves down by two goals within 16 seconds in the nine-minute mark.
