Found March 28, 2013 on HockeyBuzz:
The Maple Leafs can go a long way towards putting one team in the rear view mirror in the Eastern Conference standings completely out of sight on Thursday, as they face the Carolina Hurricanes at the Air Canada Center. Carolina currently trails sixth place Toronto by eight points, but has three games in hand and with a win could put a little heat on the Blue and White, who have earned points in...

Hurricanes D Jamie McBain whiffs on clearing attempt, scores on own net (video)

During the team’s sixth-straight loss courtesy of dropping Tuesday night’s tilt against the Winnipeg Jets by a score of 4-1, Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Jamie McBain suffered an epic whiff for the ages. When trying to clear the puck out of the defensive zone, McBain whiffed horribly, missing the puck. As his stick returned to to the ice, he inadvertently propelled the puck...

McBain scores on his own net with backswing

Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Jame McBain had some very bad luck against the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night.  He went to clear the puck after Joni Pitkanen broke up Jets’ forward Evander Kane’s passing attempt.  McBain fanned on the first clearing attempt and then when he brought his stick back for a second attempt he fired it right past his own goalie.  The goal ended up...

Richard Cloutier: Jokinen Clears Waivers

There's something funny about this. I know "collusion" is a strong word, but you can't tell me some team out there somewhere doesn't have an interest in Carolina Hurricanes forward Jussi Jokinen, who just cleared waivers. Maybe teams have agreed not to take each other's guys? No takers for Jokinen makes no sense to me. There still could be an Oilers...

Kevin Westgarth vs Frazer McLaren – Guess Which Guy Left Bloody

You might remember Kevin Westgarth from a week ago when he KO’d a rookie. Thursday night in Toronto he went with Ma…

Carolina's Jamie McBain accidentally scores on his own net

The good news: Jamie McBain scored a goal in his team's 4-1 defeat against Winnipeg. The bad news: Jamie McBain's goal went into his own net. As McBain desperately tried to clear the puck from the front of his net, he swung at the puck, missed it, and knocked the puck into his own net when he brought his stick back to the ice. It's safe to say that Evander Kane, the...

Hurricanes collapse in third period to lose seventh straight game

If there was any optimism left among the Hurricanes fanbase then tonight's 6-3 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs probably killed all of that. We've been treated to the same story for the last two weeks with the Hurricanes getting outplayed by their opponents, showing no desperation and getting blown out. Tonight's game was a little different. They were certainly outplayed...

The State of the Hurricanes

After losing six games in a row, what looked like a promising season for the Hurricanes is slowly falling apart at the seams. For a good part of the season, this team looked good enough to make the playoffs but a myriad of injuries happened followed by a brutal losing streak and now they are hanging onto dear life just to stay in the race. If the Hurricanes were to miss the playoffs...

Game 32 by the Numbers: Hurricanes at Maple Leafs

Last night, the Hurricanes nearly won a game that they had no business being in. They may have shown some "character" by battling back to tie the game in the second period and taking the lead in the third, but the Leafs were more deserving of the win. Toronto held Carolina to only six even strength scoring chances to the entire game and took 14 more shot attempts than them...

Game 31 By the Numbers: Jets at Hurricanes

Yesterday marked the Hurricanes sixth loss in a row and the third time they lost by a score of 4-1 during this stretch. No matter how many times we hear from the coaches or the players that the "playoffs" are right now, fans keep getting treated to the same performances night in and night out. Last night's performance against Winnipeg was very disheartening because...

Video- Another ‘Own’ Goal Last Night

This time a backhand from the low slot by Jamie McBain of the Carolina Hurricanes.  

Carolina Hurricanes Jamie McBain scores on his own goal against Jets (Video)

Before taking the ice, Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Jamie McBain probably should have taken the day off since he ended up making a pretty memorable NHL blooper. The Hurricanes took on the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night and as McBain was trying to clear the puck to other side of the ice, he swung at the puck and missed. That miss caused Jamie's backswing to send the the...

Jussi Jokinen could have been a good addition to the Caps, but they passed.
