With Carolina Hurricanes Seasons Ending, April Ticket Prices Start at $16

This season has not been smooth for the Carolina Hurricanes.  The Hurricanes enter April with a record of 28-36-11, while going 3-4-3 in their last 10 games.  With 67 points, the Canes have already been eliminated from playoff contention.  The standings reflect the struggle of this season as they sit in 14th place of the […]

Trip to Montreal highlights most expensive games for ‘Canes in March

With 20 games remaining in a disappointing Carolina Hurricanes season, the team looks to fight their way out of the Metropolitan division basement before time runs out. The Hurricanes are currently in last place with 62 games played, with 24 wins, 31 losses and seven overtime games, with a point total of 55. The Columbus […]

Project update and future plans

With October just around the corner, I want to give everyone an update on where I am with my All Three Zones Project. I’m in the final stages of tracking games and am aiming to have the data sent to everyone who donated within the next few weeks. For those wondering how they will get access to the […]

All Three Zones Project aka How I Spent My Summer Vacation

Hello everyone, I’d like to start out by apologizing for the lack of activity on the blog over the off-season. It’s been a busy time for me because, as some of you may know, I’m currently in the middle of a project that involves me tracking zone entries & exits from all 1230 games of […]

Zone Entries on Jordan Staal’s lines

The other day, I wrote about the struggles of the Hurricanes “second line” and how some of it stemmed from Muller relying on the trio of Jordan Staal, Patrick Dwyer & Nathan Gerbe to play in a top-six role. This was a unit that was reliable and decent when it came to winning the territorial […]

Jordan Staal and the “Small-Medium-Large” line

The summer prior to the 2012-13 season was an exciting one for Carolina Hurricanes fans. Stuck in mediocrity for years, the Canes made a couple of significant off-season moves that figured to re-shape the team and possibly lead them back to the playoffs. One of them was making a big trade for Jordan Staal at […]

Effort vs. Strategy: Neutral Zone Play

If there is one thing that gets tiring about following an under-achieving team, it’s the idea that everything can be solved with a little bit of hard work, grit and leadership. That’s seems to be the general analysis with the Carolina Hurricanes lately. All of their problems, whether it be scoring goals or preventing them, […]

Game 82 By the Numbers: Hurricanes at Flyers

Much like the previous two games, there isn’t a whole lot to say about the Hurricanes 6-5 shootout win over the Flyers. You had two teams whose seasons were basically over, one already clinching the playoff spot and one being officially eliminated from contention about a week ago. To add to that, the Flyers were […]

Game 80 By the Numbers: Capitals at Hurricanes

This game is a few days old and was dominated by score effects so there isn’t much to say about it. I don’t think the Hurricanes were outplayed as badly as the scoreboard indicated, but they didn’t have much of an answer for the Caps forecheck and ended up paying for it early. Maybe things […]

Game 81 By the Numbers: Hurricanes at Red Wings

The Hurricanes have been playing some very bad hockey for the better part of the last couple months and despite the result, last night’s 2-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings was another poorly played game. There’s nothing shameful about getting outshot against a playoff team like Detroit and this is usually the case in […]

When A Plan Doesn’t Come Together: An Overview

It’s not easy to sum up the problems with the Carolina Hurricanes because there has been just so much that has gone wrong in a short amount of time. Everyone likes to point out one person as the “root” of the problem and assume everything will be fine that piece is removed, but it doesn’t […]

Game 80 By the Numbers: Hurricanes at Rangers

With last night’s 4-1 loss to the New York Rangers, the Carolina Hurricanes are mercifully officially eliminated from playoff contention and it was fitting that a game like this would be the final nail in the coffin. The Rangers outplayed and skated circles around the Hurricanes in route to a win and this was with […]
