Detroit Red Wings
In the first two games of the year, the Hurricanes have entered the third period with a lead and each game ended with a completely different result. On the home opener Friday night, the Hurricanes held a 2-0 lead over the Detroit Red Wings at the start of the third period. That quickly turned into a one-goal lead after the Wings scored in the first minute of the period and they would end up tying the game late in the third period while playing with the extra attacker.
Sunday afternoon against Philadelphia, the Canes found themselves in a similar situation where they entered the final minute of the game hanging onto a one-goal lead. Only this time they were able to get the job done and seal up a regulation win. What was so different about the game Sunday compared to the season opener against Detroit? Playing a weaker opponent probably helped, but the Hurricanes forechecking was much more aggressive that game and their team defense was focused more on retrieving the puck instead o...

There’s always a fear in professional sports that when you trade a player, they’ll be coming back at you at some point with a vengeance. Well guess what? It happened to the Carolina Hurricanes when they lost 5-2 against the Pittsburgh Penguins on October 9th, 2013.
Jussi Jokinen of the Pittsburgh Penguins scored a hat...
Sometimes the story is that there's no story. In the case of the Carolina Hurricanes, what's curiously and rather cheerily missing is the story about a goalie controversy.
With so many goaltenders in the NHL either playing 70 games in a regular season, or thinking they ought to play at least 70 games, any back-up who is isn't taking the part of gate-opener and...
Through 2 games both at home where Coach Kirk Muller has reasonable control over matchups, there is a lot to like about the Canes forward lines so far. It only gets better when you consider that at some point Tuomo Ruutu will be added to the mix and that Elias Lindholm is starting in a very limited role with potential upside as he gets acclimated to the NHL.
Going line by line...

The UMass Lowell River Hawks get their season underway Friday night against Sacred Heart University at the Tsongas Center in Lowell. However, there are a few former River Hawks in regular season action in the NHL and AHL.

The Detroit Red Wings started the season off with a solid 2-1 win at home against the Buffalo Sabres. Then went out to Carolina and stunned the Hurricanes with a 3-2 comeback win in overtime lead by the heroics of Henrik Zetterberg and Stephen Weiss. But it was an overnight flight to Boston that proved to be too much. The reigning Eastern Conference champions controlled every aspect...
New material from real hockey games and Canes success inspired a bit of a writing spree. If you have not checked in since Sundayâs game recap, you can find 2 blogs that I posted Monday here:

With the final minutes ticking down Sunday and the Carolina Hurricanes trying to hold onto a one-goal lead in the third period Jeff Skinner said not much was said on the home team’s bench.
“I don’t think anyone had to say it” Skinner said.

The Flyers are a team that always gives the Hurricanes trouble and it usually doesn't matter how each team's season is going. Since their move to North Carolina, the Hurricanes have earned a point in only .367% of their games against the Flyers and have won 31 of 114 total meetings. So even though the Flyers have been slow coming out of the gate this year, most fans got the...
The Hurricanes are still paying Jussi Jokinen around $900,000. So when GM Jim Rutherford opens up his bank statment, he is going to vomit uncontrollably. This is basically like enduring a breakup and then having to pay for your ex to go out on unlimited dates, and you have to sit there and watch all of them.
The Penguins are basically doing whatever...
Jussi Jokinen silenced any critics in Carolina Tuesday night with a three goal game against his former team. As part of a ploy to increase cap space, the Hurricanes sent Jokinen to the Penguins, and then agreed to pay part of his salary. Doing the math, The Carolina Hurricanes have paid Jussi Jokinen $300K per goal (against them) this season. Ouch. Thanks for the free candy Carolina...

DETROIT -- The Red Wings haven't played a game since Saturday's 4-1 loss at Boston, so many of the player have spent their free time watching their baseball counterparts, the Tigers, who are in a hotly-contested American League division series with the Oakland A's.
It was perfect timing, with the Tigers having two home games, said Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg...
