Hurricanes 5v5

Manny Malhotra & the “third line”

Right now, one of the rumors circulating around the Carolina Hurricanes is their desire to add a third line center before the trade deadline. This figured not to be an issue coming into the year because the Hurricanes had a lot of natural centers on their roster and could have filled the hole from within. […]

Eastern Conference Point Pace Update

Following the playoff race is always exciting if you're a fan of the team in the hunt but at the same time, it can also make you want to pull your hair out. This is especially true if your team is clinging to life for it's playoff spot like the Carolina Hurricanes currently are. They […]

Game 56 By the Numbers: Panthers at Hurricanes

The Hurricanes haven't won many games this year when they've had an "off-night" or didn't play their best hockey, but this was pretty much the case on Friday night against Florida. Despite the 5-1 score, the Hurricanes played a sloppy game and bailed themselves out with a few timely goals and had Anton Khudobin cover […]

Game 57 By the Numbers: Canadiens at Hurricanes

If you were to only look at the numbers for this game, you might get the idea that the Hurricanes "outplayed" the Canadiens but lost 4-1 because they either didn't the bounces, were let down by their goaltender or ran into a brick wall at the other end in the form of Carey Price. Part […]

Game 55 By the Numbers: Jets at Hurricanes

The Hurricanes are coming off a good month of January, winning 10 out of 14 games and playing some of their best hockey of the season. There's been a lot of good vibes to go around, but the four losses they took were all pretty brutal to watch. They were shutout three times and fell […]

Hurricanes Trade Deadline Outlook

With only five games remaining before the trade deadline, the Hurricanes find themselves in an interesting but uncommon position. They are only one point out of a playoff spot with games in hand against some of the teams they are competing with, but most would argue that this isn't a playoff team. The Canes have […]

54 games

10-4-0

On New Year's Eve, the Hurricanes were sitting with a record of 15-16-9 and were on the brink of falling out of the playoffs race early. To make matters worse, they were also in the midst of a five-game losing streak and many of us were wondering "what is wrong with this team." Where were […]

Game 54 By the Numbers: Blues at Hurricanes

When you're a team on the cusp of the playoff race, a game against a vastly superior opponent is usually considered a "measuring stick" to see how far away said team is from being a contender. This is somewhat flawed logic because hockey is a wild game where results can be variance on any given […]

Sekera d pair

Andrej Sekera’s surprising season

When the Hurricanes acquired Andrej Sekera from the Buffalo Sabres, it was met with mixed to negative reactions. Sekera wasn't considered a "top four defenseman" by many and most thought that he wasn't worth a roster player and a second round pick. It's been almost seven months since that trade happened and Sekera actually looks […]

Game 53 By the Numbers: Hurricanes at Canadiens

Raise your hand if you've heard this story before: The Carolina lost a game in which they outshot their opponent and played a fairly solid game that was muddled by a few critical mistakes. This sums up their 3-0 shutout loss to the Montreal Canadiens last night, ending a four game winning streak and putting […]

Game 52 By the Numbers: Blue Jackets at Hurricanes

It's almost February and most fans are still trying to figure out what this Hurricanes team's "identity" is. This is something that even I have a tough time answering because the Canes have been more of a reactive team and often let their opponents decide the type of game being played. However, if there's one […]

Game 51 By the Numbers: Senators at Hurricanes

The Hurricanes offense has really become unleashed over the last week or so, averaging 4.4 goals over the last five games and a good chunk of that production has come from the first line. This is what made Saturday's 6-3 win over the Ottawa Senators slightly more satisfying. Out of the six goals Carolina scored […]

Game 50 By the Numbers: Hurricanes at Sabres

There haven't been many times this year where the Hurricanes have been able to outscore their problems and get away with playing a sub-par game, but this was the case in their 5-3 win over the Buffalo Sabres. On paper, this should have been a game that the Hurricanes shouldn't have had much trouble with. […]

Game 49 By the Numbers: Hurricanes at Flyers

Carolina fans were treated to a few things they haven't seen in awhile last Wednesday night. Not only did the Hurricanes clinch their first season series win over the Flyers in what feels like an eternity, they also got to see one of the most complete performances this club has turned in all season. One […]

Game 48 By the Numbers: Lightning at Hurricanes

This article on Alex Semin posted today seems a little ironic now because the theme of process vs. results perfectly describes the Hurricanes 5-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning. There wasn't much to complain about with the Hurricanes effort or compete level and they didn't leave anything on the ice either. They fired a […]
