Tuesday night, the Winnipeg Jets sent the Carolina Hurricanes to their sixth consecutive defeat. They did so by effectively outscoring Carolina by a tally of 4-1. But one of those goals credit to the Jets came courtesy of Hurricanes defenseman Jamie McBain.The incident occurred as McBain was trying to clear the puck after Winnipeg forward Evander Kane forced a pass into the goal area.However, McBain completely missed, and knocked the puck backwards into his own net when he brought his stick back.The same thing happened to the slumping Hurricanes last Thursday when Jordan Staal fired a shot into an empty net against New Jersey.Rough week for Carolina.

During the team’s sixth-straight loss courtesy of dropping Tuesday night’s tilt against the Winnipeg Jets by a score of 4-1, Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Jamie McBain suffered an epic whiff for the ages.
When trying to clear the puck out of the defensive zone, McBain whiffed horribly, missing the puck. As his stick returned to to the ice, he inadvertently propelled the puck...
Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Jame McBain had some very bad luck against the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night. He went to clear the puck after Joni Pitkanen broke up Jets’ forward Evander Kane’s passing attempt. McBain fanned on the first clearing attempt and then when he brought his stick back for a second attempt he fired it right past his own goalie. The goal ended up...
Before taking the ice, Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Jamie McBain probably should have taken the day off since he ended up making a pretty memorable NHL blooper.
The Hurricanes took on the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night and as McBain was trying to clear the puck to other side of the ice, he swung at the puck and missed.
That miss caused Jamie's backswing to send the the...
With the Hurricanes currently in a tough losing streak, most people figured that there were going to be some changes to the roster very soon and we saw one of those moves today with Jussi Jokinen being placed on waivers. To most people, this move came as a surprise because Jokinen is known to most people as a "top-six player," a good face-off guy and a solid play-maker...
This time a backhand from the low slot by Jamie McBain of the Carolina Hurricanes.
The Charlotte Checkers announced today the team has signed goaltender Mike Murphy to a professional tryout contract. Murphy was selected by the Carolina Hurricanes in the sixth round of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft with the 165th overall pick. On March 18, 2009, he signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Hurricanes.In 2007-08, Murphy led the Belleville Bulls to the finals [...]
Prior to the 2013 season, hockey fans wondered which team would take a chance on free agent Alexander Semin. Coming off seven seasons with the Washington Capitals, Semin landed in Carolina with a one-year deal worth $7 million.
How has the Semin experiment worked for the Hurricanes? Pretty well, actually. Through 30 games, Semin has eight goals and 22 assists for a total of...
There's something funny about this.
I know "collusion" is a strong word, but you can't tell me some team out there somewhere doesn't have an interest in Carolina Hurricanes forward Jussi Jokinen, who just cleared waivers. Maybe teams have agreed not to take each other's guys? No takers for Jokinen makes no sense to me.
There still could be an Oilers...
Yesterday marked the Hurricanes sixth loss in a row and the third time they lost by a score of 4-1 during this stretch. No matter how many times we hear from the coaches or the players that the "playoffs" are right now, fans keep getting treated to the same performances night in and night out. Last night's performance against Winnipeg was very disheartening because...
Jussi Jokinen could have been a good addition to the Caps, but they passed.
