Found October 18, 2013 on HockeyBuzz:
Saturday’s game between the Carolina Hurricanes and the New York Islanders is a matchup between the #2 and #3 teams in the Metro Division. Some might say that it is too early to begin to think of games in terms of the standings.

Hurricanes' game-winner from 174 feet out caroms of goalie's skate

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...

Faulk, Sekera become Canes’ stoppers

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.

2013-14 Carolina Hurricanes Tickets - Top 5 Games

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.

KHL’s Grigory Panin delivers perhaps dirtiest headshot ever

AK Bars defenseman Grigory Panin of the KHL was suspended for one game about a month ago for a dirty hit and I’m guessing this hit will result in an even bigger suspension.  The player he hit, Matt Murley, had drawn a penalty on Panin after taking a dive and it’s safe to guess this upset Panin.  The cheap shot to Murley’s head though was probably the dirtiest headshot I...

Game 8 By the Numbers: Hurricanes at Maple Leafs

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.

Despite having...
