TEAMS: Carolina Hurricanes
The Carolina Hurricanes never really got going in Montreal. Give the Habs credit for being better, not a ton but better through the 1st half of the game. The Canes did seem to muster a bit of energy late in the 2nd, and with recent history Canes fans had to be optimistic that the team would again pull out a win or at least a consolation point in the 3rd period. But putting it simply, Cam Ward h...

Cam Ward Gives Up Embarrassing Goal on Max Pacioretty Dump-In From Behind Red Line (Video)

Cam Ward didn’t have much fun in Montreal on Monday night. Not only did Ward and the Carolina Hurricanes leave with a loss to the Canadiens, Ward suffered a pretty embarrassing moment in the process. With the Habs already leading 2-0 late in the third, Ward gave up arguably the worst goal of the season. Montreal forward Max Pacioretty carried the puck into the neutral zone and...

The second line is in good hands with Jordan Staal

Some unfortunate news came earlier today when the Hurricanes announced that Jeff Skinner wasn't feeling well at practice today and would not be traveling with the team to Montreal for tomorrow's game. This will leave three key players out of the lineup with Tim Gleason and Joni Pitkanen also injured but that's hopefully only a short-term concern. More people are worried...

Cam Ward allows goal from behind the red line

Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty has had a rough start to the season.  He had to have an emergency appendectomy, was allegedly bitten by Mikhail Grabovsky and then endured a laceration to his ribs from a skate.  Pacrioretty had been unable to find the back of the net this year until fate gave him a lucky bounce. Late in the 3rd period he dumped a puck in from just behind...

Cam Ward lets in the “whoops” goal of the night (VIDEO)

As they say in baseball, a bleeder through the infield will show up as a line drive in the scorebook.  This goal by Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty will show up as a wicked wrist in the book…at least that’s how Hurricanes goalie Cam Ward will want it to appear. Pacioretty will embellish the story and tell his grandkids that he scored from inside his team’s blue line.  Except...

Hurricanes Prospect Update 2/11 - 2/17

Big offensive performances are somewhat common in junior hockey and you'll often see more than a few players record at least a point in every game they played in a given week. We've seen this a few times with the Hurricanes CHL prospects this year as both Ryan Murphy and Brock McGinn have put together some impressive offensive weeks over their career but none of their recent...

Carolina's Neutral Zone Play Through 13 Games

Over the last few months, I've discussed the importance of neutral zone play and tracking zone entries and today, we are finally going to take a look at how the Hurricanes are performing in that regard. Anybody who reads this blog already knows that I am a big follower of the statistical side of hockey and I've been tracking scoring chances for the Hurricanes (among other...

Game 14 Scoring Chances: Hurricanes at Canadiens

Thanks to a plethora of injuries, the Hurricanes went into last night's game short on talent and forward depth and came away with their worst offensive performance of the season. Carolina's injury depleted lineup created only nine even strength scoring chances, four of which coming in the final two minutes of the second period, and eleven overall. Both are season lows for...

Depleted Hurricanes lineup falls short in Montreal

There weren't a lot of Hurricanes fans who were expecting the team to win tonight given the roster they were dressing. It's hard to expect much when your team is missing three top players along with one of their key special teams contributors. When said players are being replaced with guys from the AHL (one of which was jetted to the game on the same day), it was very important...

Game 14 Preview: Hurricanes at Canadiens

Carolina Hurricanes at Montreal Canadiens 7:30 p.m, Bell Centre TV: FS-Carolinas, NHL Network, TSN-Habs, RDS The Hurricanes and Canadiens might be based in different countries but they have more similarities than you think They both are coming into this game on three-game win streaks and currently have similar record with the Canadiens being only one win better than the Hurricanes...

Matt Karash: Canes/Canadiens preview: Banged up midseason game?

It is only game 14, but lineup card looks like one of the those midseason stretches where you are trying to get by with a lineup that looks a lot different than the 20 you talked about in preseason. The Canes will play their 2nd game minus Joni Pitkanen and Tim Gleason on the back end and minus Jeff Skinner up front (plus Tuomo Ruutu who has been out so far and will continue to...
