With Faulk out, Canes' defense faces test

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...

Eric Selleck vs Kevin Westgarth – Selleck KO’d In 1st NHL Game & Fight

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...

So, What if the Preds are sellers at the deadline?

So, the Nashville Predators are sitting in 10th place right now, with a little under half of the season to go. It’s a tight race in the NHL this year, as the half season has made it anyone’s game, even this late in the show. But you’re David Poile and you’re like “Wow, we’re totes on the outside looking in right now. And our top guys are playing brutal for us lol...

Smith to Milwaukee on conditioning assignment

(Photo by: Mark Humphrey/AP) Just before the clock struck noon Friday, the Nashville Predators sent forward Craig Smith on a conditioning assignment in Milwaukee. Smith was scratched Thursday in Nashville's 5-3 win over the Calgary Flames and the team appeared to be gelling quite well. Smith has 3 goals in the thirty games and hasn't produced the way Barry...

Preds send Smith to Milwaukee for conditioning assignment, can he find his stride?

Photo Credit: AP Photo/Bill Boyce Our own James Nelson called it prior to it’s actual release and moments ago the Predators indeed did announce the same thing, Craig Smith has indeed been sent down to Milwaukee for a conditioning assignment. Prior to February 2nd, 2012, Smith had 31 points (11 goals and 20 assists) in 50 games total. In the previous 52 games, however? 6 goals and...

Replacing the irreplaceable

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...

Game 30 By the Numbers: Devils at Hurricanes

If you're willing to dig deep and find out what is wrong with the Carolina Hurricanes right now then I commend you because I've tried to break things down several times and have yet to come to an answer.  I was willing to write off the Tampa Bay game as a bad night but in the last three games, we've seen this team play well for maybe one period and then let the opponents...

Preds snap losing streak to start home stand

(Photo by: John Russel/Getty Images) The Nashville Predators snapped their four game losing streak to start a four game home stand. Nashville defeated the Calgary Flames 5-3 after a slow start in the first period. However, the Predators were able earn two much need points. “We had no quit,” said defenseman Kevin Klein. “We could have [been] down on ourselves, but...

Time to Panic?

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...
