Hurricanes keep heads above water with 2-1 OT win

RALEIGH, N.C. -- It wasn't pretty. At times, it was downright hideous. At least, to the 15,000 or so fans in attendance at PNC Arena who watched just over 56 minutes of scoreless hockey. But to the Hurricanes (5-7-3), losers of five in a row and in desperate need of a win, the 2-1 overtime win over Philadelphia (4-9-1) was beautiful. "It was a solid game," said Hurricanes...

Hurricanes Week In Review 10/28 - 11/4

The Hurricanes are currently in the midst of a painful losing streak and it's something that all fans are used to by now. The team went through a similar skid of November of 2011 and the second half of last season, so all of us know how to get through these stretches. We are just tired of seeing them. All teams go through losing streaks because that's just the way an 82-game...

Game 14 By the Numbers: Hurricanes at Rangers

So here we are again, the Hurricanes have lost five games in a row and seem to look worse after every game. Instead of showing progress, the Canes keep developing more bad habits and are digging themselves into a bigger hole with each loss. I was hoping that Monday's loss to the Penguins would be the low point of the season but the Canes haven't shown any progression since...

The Airing of Grievances

Today, I'm going to be taking a different approach and give my two cents on some of the team...
