Canes Clinch Playoff Spot, Down Devils 3-1

Cary, NC – Back in September, after just being announced as captain, Justin Williams made the statement that this team would make the playoffs as nothing less would be acceptable and making the playoffs was a process to win the Stanley Cup. His simple logic was: if you don’t get in the playoffs, you don’t have any chance of winning the Cup, and as he said, “that’s the ultimate goal and anything less is not what this team is about.”

After another stellar performance by Petr Mrazek, the Canes made good on Willie’s first promise by defeating the New Jersey Devils, 3-1 in front of a playoff-like loud crowd. The Canes did have some help as the Canadiens lost to the Capitals, allowing the Canes to have enough points even if they lose their last game. Which Willie would predict won’t happen. Read more

Canes Get Critical Win Over Flyers, 5-2

Cary, NC – This game meant so much for both teams for making the playoffs: the Canes needed the two points to ensure they stay in the top Wildcard spot; for the Flyers, if they lose, their playoff hopes are extinguished.

The parking lot had the tailgaters grilling and enjoying the perfect afternoon, with fans from both teams having a good time predicting the outcome. After falling behind on an early Claude Giroux goal, the Canes responded with a solid 5-2 win in front of a nearly sellout crowd.

Canes Fall to Tampa Bay, 6-3

Cary, NC – For the second game in a row against Tampa Bay, the Canes entered the third period leading the Lightning but eventually lost against a very powerful team that plays a full 60 minutes each and every game.

Tampa Bay is so strong in all facets of the game, they have three #1 forwards, the best overall defenseman in the league and the best goalie and backup tandem the league has seen in years. They’re tops in the league in power plays, overall goals, powerplay goals, defense, penalty kills and appears to have more set plays than any other team.

The fourth line has 38 goals which has to lead the league and is just three goals less than the Canes third line. No shame for the Hurricanes as they battled all game long, came back from an early deficit to take the lead and not fall behind until early in the third. Read more
