Hurricanes D Pitkanen returns, Kaberle scratched

Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Joni Pitkanen will return to the ice for Sunday's game against the Ottawa Senators. Pitkanen, who will be playing in his 500th career NHL game, has been sidelined since Nov. 11 with a lower body injury. Struggling blue-liner Tomas Kaberle was made a healthy scratch to allow Pitkanen back in the lineup. The fourth overall pick of the 2002 draft...

DeCock: Time for Canes to admit Kaberle mistake

It’s decision time on defense for the Hurricanes, and it won’t be an easy one -- for them, anyway. For anyone who has watched this team this season, the choice is simple. Joni Pitkanen, who has been out for two weeks with a lower-body injury, is close to returning, perhaps as soon as tomorrow’s game at the Ottawa Senators. When he does, someone is going to have to come out...

Game 25 Preview: Hurricanes at Senators

Carolina Hurricanes (8-12-4) at Ottawa Senators (10-10-4)Scotiabank Place 5 p.m.TV: FS-Carolinas, Sportsnet Ottawa What was once a blue line that was rich in depth and talent has begun to dwindle down as Jay Harrison has joined the list of injured defensemen right as Joni Pitkanen re-joined the lineup.

Carolina Hurricanes vs. Winnipeg Jets 11/25/11 Scoring Chances

One of the reasons why I decided to join the scoring chance project is to catch some things that I may have not seen on the ice. For instance, a player might be labeled as the goat because he failed to tie up a forward in front of the net and it led to the game-winning goal for the opposing team. He may also receive some flack for having the game-tying goal on his stick with less...

Carolina Hurricanes vs. Montreal Canadiens 11/23/11 Scoring Chances

This is coming a few days late because of Thanksgiving throwing off my schedule but I wanted to get the chances posted for this game and I have a few things I want to discuss, too. There are some who say that the two goal lead is the most dangerous in hockey because it's when teams begin to settle back and play conservative instead of building on a lead. That's what happened...

November Powerplay Woes

Back in October, I defended the Hurricanes powerplay because while they were not scoring, they were at least getting chances on net and were in the top 10 in the league when it came to generating shots 5-on-4. When this is the case, the dice eventually start to roll in their favor and the goals come with it. I figured this would be the case with the Canes but for whatever reason...
