With Cam Ward weeks away from returning and Anton Khudobin's availability in doubt and the Rick DiPietro experiment underway with the Charlotte Checkers, the Canes' goaltending job belongs to Justin Peters. Canes coach Kirk Muller said Monday that Peters has "the ball." For now he's the No. 1 goalie, the best option. Against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday night, Peters allowed three goals on 29 shots in a 3-1 loss and Muller had no complaints about the goaltending. "He battled and he played hard," Muller said. "We broke down (and) had mistakes that cost us a couple of goals. We had opportunities to capitalize and had almost similar plays but we didn't capitalize." The Pens' goals came on a rebound, a sparkling play by Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz, then a deflection that ended up with the puck bouncing past Peters. "There's such a fine line between winning and losing," Peters said after the game. "One play...

Canes’ Jeff Skinner won’t play this weekend

According to the Raleigh News & Observer’s Chip Alexander, Jeff Skinner will not play this weekend for the Carolina Hurricanes, which would mean two games, at the very least. In his place though, Radek Dvorak may be back in the lineup. The 21 year old Skinner is suffering from an upper body injury. The good news is, it is most likely not a concussion. Sometimes the NHL teams...

RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with center Manny Malhotra (mal-HOH-truh) on a one-year, two-way contract.

Penguins' defense stifles Hurricanes in 3-1 defeat

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Pittsburgh (8-4-0) had lost three games in a row coming into a matchup with the beat-up Carolina Hurricanes (4-5-3). And the Penguins aren't the type of team that loses that many games in a row. It seemed like the Hurricanes were on the cusp of putting something together with two straight wins over the Maple Leafs and Islanders -- and then the injury bug struck...

Fighting an uphill battle

Slow starts aren't anything new to the Carolina Hurricanes. They've been known for having an underwhelming record during the month of October for years now and it always seems to take their best players awhile to get into top form. We seem to go through this every season, so the Canes posting a 4-5-3 record through October could end up being not that big of a deal in the...

Game 12 By the Numbers: Penguins at Hurricanes

Where do I begin with this game? There are so many errors and examples of terrible play that I could single out but I wanted to keep this post reasonably short. I'll just say this: The Hurricanes played, by far, their worst game of the season and looked completely outmatched by the Penguins. A three-game losing streak isn't the end of the world and it's still early in...

Game 12: Penguins vs. Hurricanes Recap

Somehow the Carolina Hurricanes are second in the Metropolitan division. After watching the game tonight, one can conclude that the Metro division is very bad after the Penguins. It wasn’t their best game, but the Pens got off the schneid with a 3-1 victory against a Canes team who was missing their best offensive weapon…

TSN’s Insider Trading: on DiPietro, the Canadiens’ defensemen and Phaneuf

After hearing about little other than the Buffalo Sabres' former co-captain and his former goaltender over the past week, it was refreshing to hear TSN's "Insider Trading" panel, a.k.a. Bob McKenzie, Pierre LeBrun (who touched upon several of the below-mentioned topics in his "Rumblings") and Darren Dreger discuss non-Sabres topics--after touching upon...

Hurricanes Week In Review 10/21 - 10/27

There's only two games to recap for the Canes this week and neither of them were anything to write home about, as they were both losses and ones that the Hurricanes played poorly in. To add to that, they also sustained a few injuries to key players, the biggest of which being goaltender Cam Ward, so the morale of the team has crashed back of Earth after a three-game point streak...

Pens Index: Big week ahead

The Penguins come limping into this week with a three-game losing streak. After starting out 7-1 against a ton of terrible hockey teams, the Pens faltered last week against some better teams. The Pens have four games this week, all against decent clubs: Carolina - All of Sudden Carolina has moved into second place in the Metro. Cam Ward is hurt though. Boston - First...

Red Wings prospect news: Griffins take out Charlotte; Walleye lose, Nastasiuk bests Athanasiou

Last weekend, the Grand Rapids Griffins took two of the three games they played over the course of 3 weekend nights, but their 5-0, home-ice loss to the Charlotte Checkers stood out like a sore thumb. The Griffins welcomed the Checkers back to Van Andel Arena on Wednesday night, and the Griffins earned a much better result, scoring 4 goals on Rick DiPietro and defeating Charlotte...

Grand Rapids Griffins frame their week ahead: Wednesday visit with Charlotte, then two on the road

The Grand Rapids Griffins won two of three games last weekend, which was pretty darn impressive that they played at home, in Chicago and then in Des Moines, Iowa over a 36-hour period (and AHL teams ride ye olde iron lung). This week, the Griffins will play 2-out-of-3 on the road, just as they did last weekend, but they'll hope to earn a measure of revenge for last Friday&...
