It’s turning into quite a work week for Carolina Hurricanes defensemen Justin Faulk and Andrej Sekera.
Or in their case just another week.
On Tuesday Faulk and Sekera often were on the ice with Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks at PNC Arena. On Thursday it often was Phil Kessel and Tyler Bozak of the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre.
The Canes continue their road trip Saturday against the New York Islanders. For Faulk and Sekera that could mean a big dose of John Tavares and Kyle Okposo at Nassau Coliseum.
“If you had asked me my rookie year if I thought I’d be playing against the top lines in the NHL I’d probably have told you there’s not a chance” said Faulk in his third NHL season. “But I like it. Why not?”
Faulk and Sekera have become the Canes’ top defensive pairing. They’re logging major minutes on the ice at key moments of games and also contributing on the power play and penalty kill.
“They’re in sync” Canes coach Kirk Muller said. “As

There are some good vibes in Raleigh this week as the Hurricanes have earned three points in two games and started their road trip off on the right foot by defeating the Toronto Maple Leafs. Some other good news is that defenseman Tim Gleason, who missed time with a concussion, has begun skating with the team again and could return to the lineup as soon as next week. Gleason plays...
One current and one former Los Angeles Kings goaltender have had a rough go of things early this season. If you thought Jonathan Quick’s misplay of the puck earlier this season would be the shoe-in for most embarrassing goal of the year, you may have to reconsider after what happened to Jonathan Bernier last night. The Hurricanes and Leafs went head-to-head in Toronto last night...
By Nick Tranfaglie of TiqIQ,
Are the Carolina Hurricanes almost 50 percent better than they were last year? While that question is difficult to answer quantifiably, the Canes’ ticket prices are 46 percent more expensive this season than they were last year, hence the unanswerable query.
This year at PNC Arena, the average price for Carolina Hurricanes tickets is $114, whereas...
Another night, another one-goal game for the Hurricanes and they managed to come out on the right side of the coin in yesterday's tilt against the New York Islanders. Although, this game was much different from the other close contests that the Hurricanes have been involved in this year. Instead of battling back from an early deficit, the Canes built a strong 3-0 lead in the...
The Carolina Hurricanes found themselves in an unusual position Saturday – holding a lead in the third period.
After rallying from two-goal deficits in the third the past two games the Canes outlasted the New York Islanders 4-3 in a Metropolitan Division game at Nassau Coliseum.
Jiri Tlusty scoreless in the first eight games this season scored twice for the Canes (4-2-3). Jordan...
Carolina's 3-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs was one of those games that unbelievably frustrating to watch from a fan's perspective. There weren't any stretches where the Canes were outplayed but a couple of mistakes put themselves down 2-0 in the second period and absolutely nothing was going their way through the first 40 minutes of the game or so. Despite having...
It took a big break for the Carolina Hurricanes to beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-2 on Thursday.
It also took another big pushback and third-period comeback.
In a bizarre twist the Leafs lost starting goaltender James Reimer to an injury 32 seconds into the game. Even more startling was the way the Canes scored the winning goal.
With the score tied 2-2 Canes defenseman Ron Hainsey...
