RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Three Carolina Hurricanes defensemen were hurt Tuesday night during a game against the Florida Panthers.
Bobby Sanguinetti appeared to take a skate to the face, and Justin Faulk sustained an apparent right leg injury shortly before Tim Gleason was hit with a high stick.
Faulk was hurt midway through the second period when he collided with Jack Skille behind the net and hobbled to the dressing room. The team said he wouldn't return.
A few minutes later, Gleason was bloodied when he was hit by Scottie Upshall, drawing a double high-sticking penalty. He was back for the final 2 minutes of the period.
Sanguinetti was hurt in the first when a Florida player's skate appeared to clip his face during a collision. He returned by the start of the second.
BEST OF MAXIM
Playing 48 games in 99 days was bound to make this NHL season a test of attrition.
For the Carolina Hurricanes, that idea took on a new grimness and immediacy when the team announced on Wednesday that defenseman Justin Faulk, who leads the Hurricanes in average time on ice per game, would miss the next two to four weeks with a second-degree sprain of his MCL.
Already playing without...
The Carolina Hurricanes say defenseman Justin Faulk will miss 2-4 weeks with a sprained knee ligament.
The team disclosed Faulk's diagnosis Wednesday and said the second-year defenseman will not need surgery.
He was hurt midway through the second period of Tuesday night's 4-1 loss to the Florida Panthers. He suffered a second-degree sprain of the medial collateral ligament...
RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that defenseman Justin Faulk has been diagnosed with a second-degree sprain of the medial collateral ligament (MCL). Surgery will not be required for the injury, and he is expected to be out two-to-four weeks.
Welcome to the NHL, Eric Selleck. The 25-year-old tough guy made his NHL debut last night at Carolina and nearly made it through the Panthers 4-1 win without getting knocked out. Selleck decided he wanted to make a splash in his first game with 2:58 remaining by picking a fight with Kevin Westgarth.
Wrong move, rookie.
Two punches later and Selleck needed to find the game highlights...
RALEIGH, NC --- Being forced to wait for a long time on a plane in Newark, N.J., late Monday night did nothing to enhance the Carolina Hurricanes' chances of defeating the fledgling Florida Panthers at PNC Arena on Tuesday night.
While the 'Canes waited for their plane to be de-iced, the Panthers were already in Raleigh resting comfortably for Tuesday's game.
If losing four games in a row wasn't bad enough, Hurricanes fans also received news that the team's best defenseman, Justin Faulk, will miss the next 2-4 weeks with an MCL sprain. The Hurricanes have been destroyed by injuries for most of the season, but I have a feeling that Faulk's absence might have the most impact on the team. I know this sounds like an overreaction...
Hurricanes head coach Kirk Muller opted to shake things up a bit after the team's bad loss to Tampa Bay on Saturday night by jumbling the lines a little bit. He took Jeff Skinner off the second line with Jordan Staal and placed him with Riley Nash & Jussi Jokinen while Patrick Dwyer and Drayson Bowman were moved up to the second line with J. Staal. The Canes got barely anything...
The roller coaster ride that is the Carolina Hurricanes 2013 season has gone down yet another slope as the team has lost their last four game and are really starting to feel the heat of the Winnipeg Jets and the rest of the Eastern Conference. After their most recent showing against the Florida Panthers where they lost 4-1 and gave up 44 shots on goal, I asked the question of whether...
A bad loss can cause a coach to react in certain ways and Kirk Muller was apparently very unhappy with his team's performance in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning, so he decided to shake things up a bit for tonight's game against the New York Rangers. The result? Another loss, but one where the team got a point and played well for various segments. There...
The New York Rangers (13-12-2) host the Carolina Hurricanes (15-11-1) at Madison Square Garden starting at 7:00 p.m. For a preview go to Yahoo! Sports.
