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 […]

Game 78 By the Numbers: Devils at Hurricanes

The Hurricanes point-streak ends at five-games as they dropped a 3-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils last night in what was a pretty uneventful game overall. Carolina continued their recent trend of staring the game off on a poor note, falling behind 1-0 in the first period and using the rest of the night […]

Game 77 By the Numbers: Stars at Hurricanes

As sports fans, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the emotion of a game and get jazzed up over a win even when the season is basically over. Nobody likes to lose, but all winning does at this point is worsen the Hurricanes draft position, so it’s important to keep your eyes focused on […]

Game 76 By the Numbers: Hurricanes at Penguins

Even with Evgeni Malkin out of the lineup, this was a game that most hockey minds would consider an easy win for the Penguins. They were going up against a Hurricanes team that had just played the night before in Ottawa and are likely heading for a bottom-ten finish in another couple weeks. To add […]

Game 75 By the Numbers: Hurricanes at Senators

If you’re looking to use the rest of the season to dig out some positives with the Hurricanes future, last night’s 2-1 shootout loss to the Ottawa Senators probably didn’t provide you with much. On the other hand, if you are just looking for entertaining hockey the rest of the way, then this was the […]

Game 74 By the Numbers: Blue Jackets at Hurricanes

It’s been awhile since the Hurricanes lost a game in overtime, so last night’s 3-2 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets was an unfriendly reminder of what haunted this team for most of November and December. They were involved in a close, tight-checking game that they could have closed out in regulation but ended up […]

Game 62 By the Numbers: Hurricanes at Sharks

Riding a five-game losing streak while trying to hang onto their playoff lives, the Hurricanes were a team in desperate need of a win and they played up to this label last night against the San Jose Sharks. For the first 40 minutes, we saw the Hurricanes do a lot of things that have been […]

25 Games

There are still a few months left to go in the season, but we are at that point in the season where we can start getting a gauge on how good each team is and how they stand in comparison to everyone else. For the Hurricanes, they have gotten off to a rocky start this […]

Game 22 By the Numbers: Hurricanes at Red Wings

Last night's 4-3 loss to the Detroit Red Wings was all about missed opportunities. After starting slow and falling behind 2-0, the Hurricanes managed to really back and tie the game in the second period. Near the end of the frame, they were given a five-on-three power play and had a chance to really tilt […]

Game 18 By the Numbers: Avalanche at Hurricanes

There are a lot things to be happy about with last night's game. Not only did the Hurricanes win, but they got their first win against the Western Conference, handing the Colorado Avalanche only their third loss of the season. They also extended their point streak to four games and are starting to see some […]

Game 6 By the Numbers: Coyotes at Hurricanes

We're only six games into the season, but there are already some signs of major concern in Raleigh, as the Hurricanes dropped a 5-3 decision the Phoenix Coyotes yesterday. Not only did the Canes lose their third game of the last four, they did it while getting grossly outplayed at even strength and looking outmatched […]

Game 5 By the Numbers: Kings at Hurricanes

"Sloppy," "gritty," and "ugly" are a few choice words that have been used to describe Carolina's performance against the Los Angeles Kings last night. The end result was disappointing with the Canes losing in the shootout, but they managed to get a point thanks to a nice comeback effort in the third period and managed […]

Game 4 By the Numbers: Hurricanes at Capitals

Perhaps the biggest question coming into this season was whether or not the Carolina Hurricanes would dispel the narrative about them being a "fragile" team. Last night's 3-2 win over the Washington Capitals was a good step towards that. The Canes were faced with a bit of adversity in yesterday's game and had every reason […]
