Ward, who started eight of Carolina's first 10 games, is expected to miss 3-4 weeks.

A call for better linemates

The whole debate on whether or not the Hurricanes "won" the Jordan Staal trade will probably go on forever and at this point, I've kind of stopped caring. The Hurricanes wanted to get a top-tier player and paid a big price in order to get Jordan. After last season, most would consider this trade a big loss for the Hurricanes because Jordan didn't have the big "...

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. They're hoping their early woes against the Western Conference are just that. The Hurricanes look for their first four-game road winning streak in more than 30 months Thursday night...

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. Sure, the Hurricanes made the shot count close in the third period, but that only happened because the Avs had a 2-3 goal cushion for most...

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...

Matt Karash: Hurricanes Game Day Preview: @Minnesota--Team USA 1st pairing preview?

You heard it hear 1st. I think Thursday's matchup is an interesting preview night for Team USA's 1st pairing for the upcoming Olympics with Ryan Suter and Justin Faulk taking the ice against each other. Suter is a shoe-in, very likely the team's #1 defender and a left shot. Justin Faulk is an up-and-comer, a well-rounded player and a reasonable fit for Suter as a right...

Matt Karash: Canes sign DiPietro to AHL tryout

With #1 Cam Ward out 3-4 weeks and #2 Khudobin getting close (supposedly he will be on the ice for practice Sunday) but still probably something between a few days and a week plus away, the Canes just signed Rick DiPietro to an AHL tryout contract. (Reported by Chip Alexander at Raleigh News & Observer plus national media outlets.) There is no risk in an AHL tryout contract...
