RALEIGH, N.C. -- Goalie Dan Ellis has given the Carolina Hurricanes something to think about with their goalie rotation. Ellis, making his second start of the season, stopped 33 shots and Eric Staal's first-period goal held up as the Hurricanes defeated the Ottawa Senators 1-0 Friday night at PNC Arena. "We were able to get some good habits and that's something to build on," said Ellis, who's slotted as the team's No. 2 goalie behind Cam Ward. But with Ward struggling coming out of the NHL lockout, Ellis has looked more in tune in the first couple of weeks of the season. Ellis spent a few months during the lockout playing for the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League simply trying to be ready to make the NHL roster. "Playing in the (AHL) gave me a chance to find my own game," he said. Ellis, in his first season with the Hurricanes, posted his 13th career shutout in his 168th game. It was his first shutout since Nov. 9, 2010, w...

RALEIGH, NC --- As the Carolina Hurricanes embark on a six-game road swing that won't bring them back for another home game until Valentine's Day, they can do so knowing they're capable of handling any style.
Carolina is built to score and play fast, but on Friday night at PNC Arena, the only goal scored was by Hurricanes' star center Eric Staal in the first period...
One of the reasons why the Hurricanes acquired Jordan Staal this summer is because he is the type of player who can make the rest of your roster better. We've been over this hundreds of times before, but J. Staal's ability to drive the play and create offense despite playing the toughest minutes on the team allows Kirk Muller to free up some of his other lines to easier minutes...
Dan Ellis made 33 saves for his first shutout in more than two years and Eric Staal scored to lead the Carolina Hurricanes to a 1-0 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Friday night.
Ellis, making only his second start of the season in place of Cam Ward, earned his 13th career shutout and first since Nov. 9, 2010, against Toronto when he was with Tampa Bay.

From the Carolina Hurricanes:
RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the Pittsburgh Penguins have claimed forward Zach Boychuk on waivers.
Boychuk, 23, appeared in Carolina’s season opener against the Florida Panthers and was a healthy extra for four games. The Airdrie, Alb...
You probably already know this already, but the Pens have claimed Zach Boychuck off of waivers from Carolina. He's a former first-round pick. There's some speculation that he may be given a shot alongside Malkin and Neal.
Boychuck has seven goals and 11 assists in 73 career NHL games.
He wears number 11, which is probably why Carolina didn't want him any longer...
Jamie McBain's goal on Monday night's game against the Boston Bruins was a bit of a milestone for the Hurricanes. Not only was it the young defenseman's first goal of the season, but it was also the first time all year that the Hurricanes scored in the first period. That's right, it took five games into the year for the Hurricanes to finally score in the first period...
Last night's 5-3 win over the Carolina Hurricanes may not have been the textbook way to win a hockey game. But the Flyers couldn't care less right now. They desperately needed the two points from the game. After being held to two or fewer goals in seven of the first eight games, the five goals (including three power play tallies) felt like a bonanza.
The Penguins picked 23 year old Carolina Hurricanes Left Winger Zack Boychuk off of waivers today. Boychuk was a first round 14th overall pick in the 2008 entry draft.
Boychuk saw on average 9 minutes playing time in the 16 games he played for Carolina last year and got to play all of 1 game with them this year. My guess is that Dustin Jeffrey who was about to see time on Malkin’s...

The sense of optimism in Raleigh after their back-to-back sweep of the Buffalo Sabres didn't last long as the feelings of gloom and doom returned after the Hurricanes 5-3 loss to the Boston Bruins on Monday night. A bad third period performance is usually a good way to lose confidence...
The Flyers scored goals tonight. Even strength goals, power play goals. GOALS FOR EVERYONE! The orange and black came out flying, no pun intended (Flyers…Flying? Yeah I’m stupid), Kurtis Foster ripped a shot past Hurricanes goalie Dan Ellis just 5:08 […]
