Jay Harrison scored the overtime winner for the Carolina Hurricanes, and was quick to credit Cam Ward for the victory. The Hurricanes' goalie made 45 saves on Thursday night as Carolina escaped Ottawa with a 3-2 victory over the Senators. Ward's heroics, which included 16 saves in a chaotic second period in which Carolina was outshot 17-3, helped set up Harrison's winner at 2:19 of overtime ''Cam's a great goaltender, and he keeps us in games,'' said Harrison, who banged home the deciding goal off a scramble in front of Senators goalie Craig Anderson. ''He's a huge part of our success, and we owe that to him. ''The fact we were able to get back on the horse in the third period and have a few big penalty kills, score a big power-play goal and then an overtime goal demonstrated we played a pretty solid road game.'' Chad LaRose and Alexander Semin scored in regulation for the Hurricanes, who have won five of their last se...

Searching for Scoring Depth

Most of the talk surrounding the Carolina Hurricanes right now is centered around how well some of their top forwards are playing right now. Eric Staal is off to his best start in quite some time, Alexander Semin has been producing well and so have both Jordan Staal and Jeff Skinner. The fact that these four are providing most of the offense is a good thing because the Hurricanes...

Hurricanes pull one out in overtime

Generally speaking, the Hurricanes have done a pretty good job of outplaying their opponents this year or at least keeping things relatively even against them. The wins haven't been coming as often as fans would like but the Canes have had more good games than bad this year by my account. Tonight's game against Ottawa had all the makings of being one of the worst games the...

Game 9: Hurricanes at Senators

Even though the Hurricanes won last night's game in overtime, their performance reminded me a lot of how they played last year. Not only were they heavily outshot, but the Senators had control for most of the game and the Hurricanes were forced to play in their own end more often than they would have liked. They were able to stay in the game and force overtime thanks to great...
