The Carolina Hurricanes will be without Cam Ward for at least a month according to various sources, and Justin Peters will assume starting goalie duties for the ‘Canes for the time being. Anton Khudobin could begin skating on Sunday, and might be available to Carolina within the week according to coach Kirk Mueller. He spoke to the Carolina News Observer about his availability moving forward: While [Khudobin] could be back skating with the team by Sunday, Canes coach Kirk Muller said he may not be ready to return to the lineup for another week. Whether it’s one week or two weeks, the Hurricanes will badly need Khudobin’s help after he returns to the lineup. He was outstanding for the Boston Bruins last season, but bolted once the B’s locked Tuukka Rask down for the foreseeable future. Khudobin could have been considered mildly dolomite for Boston, actually.

Wild looks to slow improving Hurricanes

The Carolina Hurricanes have looked quite comfortable away from home in October, and in the next two nights they'll get a couple of more chances to prove their early road play isn't a fluke.

Game 10 By the Numbers: Hurricanes at Wild

The Hurricanes 3-1 loss to the Minnesota Wild was filled with some positives and a lot of negatives. On the plus side, they outshot a Minnesota team that has made a habit out of dominating their opponents at even strength. That stat becomes slightly less impressive when you take into account that the Hurricanes were playing from behind for 3/4 of the game while Minnesota sat back...

Game 11 By the Numbers: Hurricanes at Avalanche

Aside from Thursday night's game against Minnesota, all of Carolina's regulation losses this year have been pretty lousy performances by the entire team and the beating they took from the Colorado Avalanche last night was no exception.

Drop Passes

By: Rich Miller (@pensbender) This is pretty straight forward, right?  John Scott is a statue on skates and is basically as one-dimensional as they come in today’s NHL.  In 187 career games, he’s tallied five points.  Five.  It’s counterproductive, yet punch throwers and cheap-shot artists like Scott continue to take roster spots away from guys who can actually play hockey...
