After a long road journey lasting 6 games and 11 days, the Carolina Hurricanes and Canes fans finally get another dose of home hockey against the Toronto Maple Leafs. I would not say that the Canes are firing on all cylinders but they are playing confident and finding ways to win. What's not to like about a 4-1-1 road trip and coming home in 1st place in the Southeast Division.
So the Canes m...

RALEIGH, NC --- The Carolina Hurricanes are the hottest team in the Eastern Conference. That isn't an aberration, they are a darn good club.
After starting the season 0-2, the Canes are 8-2-1 and are 5-1-1 in their last seven games. The first six games of that stretch came on the road, a grueling 12-day trip that ended up serving the team well.
Not only did they pick up nine...

The Hurricanes have a chance to end this six-game road trip on a high note by winning four out of six games and taking home nine out of a possible 12 points with a win tonight over the New Jersey Devils. At the beginning of the year, I said that the Hurricanes need to make it out of...
The Hurricanes managed to pull out a 4-2 win over the New Jersey Devils last night and they did it on the back of one of their weakest offensive performances of the young season. The Devils held Carolina to only nine scoring chances at even strength and 12 overall, which are season lows for the Hurricanes this season. New Jersey is also only the third team this season to outchance...
There are a lot of things to like about this year's Hurricanes team. The offense is much better than it was last season, they have more depth and this team is a lot more fun to watch than last year's squad. The defense, however, has had it's share of problems and it's been very evident on the penalty kill. The Hurricanes penalty kill ranks third to last in the NHL...

Tonight's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs had the makings of being one of those old fashioned, high scoring run-and-gun style contests where the winner would be determined by who had the last shot on net. The Hurricanes, who haven't been good defensively this year, were missing two top-four defensemen in Joni Pitkanen and Tim Gleason while the Leafs have injuries all...
