Hurricanes collapse in third period, lose seventh straight game

If there was any optimism left among the Hurricanes fanbase then tonight's 6-3 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs probably killed all of that. We've been treated to the same story for the last two weeks with the Hurricanes getting outplayed by their opponents, showing no desperation and getting blown out. Tonight's game was a […]

Rinse. Repeat. Canes lose 4-1 to Winnipeg

Seven goals. That is all the Hurricanes have scored in their last six games and unsurprisingly they have gone winless during this stretch and are slowly falling out of the playoff picture. The defense and goaltending is going to receiving the bulk of the blame for Carolina's recent struggles, but you also need things called […]

Carolina lays another egg in 4-1 loss to Devils

We've all seen this movie before. The Hurricanes came into this game in need of a win and were taking on a struggling team who were in a similar situation. The Canes may have lost their last four, but the Devils had only won three of their last 10 and really starting to lose ground […]

Hurricanes dominated by Panthers, lose fourth straight game

Bad games happen over the course of the year and the Hurricanes have had their share of them this season, but their 4-1 loss to the Panthers tonight my have been the absolute low point of the season. It wasn't so much the fact that they lost but more that they were outplayed and outworked […]

Hurricanes fall to Rangers in a shootout

A bad loss can cause a coach to react in certain ways and Kirk Muller was apparently very unhappy with his team's performance in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning, so he decided to shake things up a bit for tonight's game against the New York Rangers. The result? Another loss, but one […]

Tampa Bay overpowers Carolina in 4-1 win

In any given season, there are always teams who have each other's number. Last year, the Hurricanes had the Bruins number, sweeping them in a four game series and this year, it seems the Lightning have played their best games of the season against the Hurricanes. After their 4-1 win tonight, the Lightning have won […]

Carolina surrenders two goal lead in loss to Washington

In the big picture, this loss probably doesn't mean a whole lot in terms of how it affects Carolina's season. It's only their second loss in the span of two weeks and they can regain their lead in the Southeast with a win over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday. The NHL has a long […]

Justin Peters earnes second career shutout in 4-0 win over Washington

Carolina's 4-0 shutout over Washington Capitals tonight was eerily similar to the game these two teams played two weeks ago at the Verizon Center. You had one team coming in on a relatively high note and rolling through the game without much trouble while their injury-depleted opponents barely put up much of a fight. The […]

Carolina’s win streak ends at four, lose 4-2 to Montreal

Sometimes the most frustrating losses are the ones when the team plays a solid game but ends up with nothing to show for it because of a few bone-handed mistakes. This was the case for the Hurricanes in their 4-2 loss to the Canadiens tonight. They outshot Montreal 43-28 and played arguably their best 20 […]

Hurricanes destroy Panthers for first Southeast win

With all due respect to the Florida Panthers, tonight was a game that the Hurricanes should have won. They came into tonight's game still winless in Southeast division play and were taking on a Florida team that currently sits last in the Eastern Conference and has been playing some bad hockey for most of the […]

Back on track: Canes defeat Penguins 4-1

After having to go the last two weeks with five players out of the lineup, the Hurricanes got four of these players back tonight and put together their best performance of the season. Everything just seemed to come together tonight. The first line was firing on all cylinders, the penalty kill was a perfect five […]

Hurricanes end losing streak with a comeback win over the Islanders

"Here we go again" was the phrase uttered by many Hurricanes fans after they saw their team fall behind early in the first period and were forced to play from behind yet again. Even more grumbles of frustration were unleashed later on that period when the Hurricanes were able to mount an attack but could […]

Terrible third period leads to Carolina’s third straight loss

Coming into this game off two straight losses and no divisional wins to their name, many fans considered Carolina's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning a "must win." It's still too early to consider any game a must win, but the Canes would have done themselves a huge favor down the line by getting a […]

Hurricanes outplay Jets but lose 4-3

Losing is always tough and losing when you outplay your opponents is even more frustrating. This is what happened to the Hurricanes tonight, as they dropped a 4-3 decision to the Winnipeg Jets despite outplaying them for most of the game and remain winless in Southeast Division play this season. With the roster crushed by […]
