Found February 03, 2013 on HockeyBuzz:
Last night's 5-3 win over the Carolina Hurricanes may not have been the textbook way to win a hockey game. But the Flyers couldn't care less right now. They desperately needed the two points from the game. After being held to two or fewer goals in seven of the first eight games, the five goals (including three power play tallies) felt like a bonanza. Let's accentuate the positives first. Phill...

Hurricanes recall Tim Wallace, assign Zac Dalpe to Charlotte

The Hurricanes made a surprising move today by deciding to send down forward Zac Dalpe to the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League and recall Tim Wallace. Dalpe had two points in six games and is the only forward on the team who can go to the AHL without needing waivers, so he was sent down in favor of Tim Wallace who could possibly add some grit to the team. Wallace...

Gritty win gives Canes boost before long trip

RALEIGH, NC --- As the Carolina Hurricanes embark on a six-game road swing that won't bring them back for another home game until Valentine's Day, they can do so knowing they're capable of handling any style. Carolina is built to score and play fast, but on Friday night at PNC Arena, the only goal scored was by Hurricanes' star center Eric Staal in the first period...

Hurricanes Prospect Update 1/29 - 2/2

Prospects sometimes become a bit of an afterthought when the NHL season gets rolling, but don't think we have forgot about them, as there is still a lot to report on regarding those in Carolina's system. This week wasn't as eventful as the last, but there were a couple big standouts. The most notable one was clearly Phil Di Giuseppe who had five points in two games with...

Ellis shuts down Senators

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Goalie Dan Ellis has given the Carolina Hurricanes something to think about with their goalie rotation. Ellis, making his second start of the season, stopped 33 shots and Eric Staal's first-period goal held up as the Hurricanes defeated the Ottawa Senators 1-0 Friday night at PNC Arena. "We were able to get some good habits and that's something to...

Eliis stops 33 shots, Hurricanes beat Senators

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Dan Ellis made 33 saves for his first shutout in more than two years and Eric Staal scored to lead the Carolina Hurricanes to a 1-0 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Friday night. Ellis, making only his second start of the season in place of Cam Ward, earned his 13th career shutout and first since Nov. 9, 2010, against Toronto when he was with Tampa Bay....

Hurricanes-Maple Leafs Preview

The Carolina Hurricanes are generating plenty of shots. They're just not capitalizing on their opportunities as often as they'd like and have been unable to gain much traction in the season's early going as a result. They get a chance to reverse that trend Monday night against the Maple Leafs at Toronto, where they've had success while dominating the series of late...

Hurricanes 1, Senators 0

Dan Ellis made 33 saves for his first shutout in more than two years and Eric Staal scored to lead the Carolina Hurricanes to a 1-0 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Friday night. Ellis, making only his second start of the season in place of Cam Ward, earned his 13th career shutout and first since Nov. 9, 2010, against Toronto when he was with Tampa Bay. Carolina improved to...

Game 7 Scoring Chances: Hurricanes at Flyers

Once again, the Hurricanes were involved in a game where they were playing from behind and ended up having a huge lead in shots and scoring chances partially because of it. Don't get me wrong, Carolina having an advantage in shots and scoring chances for yet another game is a good thing in the long-run, but it's still very early in the year and I'm not sure how much stock...

Powerless powerplay leads to another loss

History is beginning to repeat itself for the Carolina Hurricanes, as they once again outplayed their opponent tonight but ended up taking a loss because of some terrible special teams play. They outshot the Flyers 42-24 (30-16 at even strength) but went 1/6 on the powerplay and had multiple opportunities to get back into the game in the third period. Unfortunately, they still look...

Game 8 Preview: Hurricanes at Maple Leafs

Carolina Hurricanes at Toronto Maple Leafs 7 p.m., Air Canada Centre TV: FS-Carolinas, SportsNet-Ontario Starting this long road trip with a 5-3 loss to an injury-depleted Flyers team on Saturday night probably wasn't what the Hurricanes had in mind, so they will look to turn things around tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs. That loss to the Flyers was yet another...

Game 6 Scoring Chances: Senators at Hurricanes

Carolina's 1-0 win over the Ottawa Senators might be seen as another game that goaltender Dan Ellis "stole" for them because he recorded a shutout and the Hurricanes were outshot at even strength. While both of those points are true, the Hurricanes defense also deserves a lot of credit for Ellis' shutout as they did a fantastic job of not allowing many scoring opportunities...

Game 7 Preview: Hurricanes at Flyers

Carolina Hurricanes at Philadelphia Flyers Wells Fargo Center, 7 p.m. TV: FS-Carolinas, CSN-Philadelphia Tonight's game begins what is easily the toughest part of the Carolina Hurricanes schedule. Not only is it a back-to-back on the road, but it's also the first game of a six-game road trip featuring two games on back-to-back nights. It's good to get this part...

Hurricanes shutout Ottawa 1-0

Carolina's game against the Ottawa Senators had all the makings of a disappointment for the home team. We've seen the Hurricanes get shut down by opposing goalie a few times this year and it looked like it was going to happen again tonight as Senators goalie Craig Anderson played about as good of a game as you can ask for. Carolina played their best first period of the season...
