Canes' committment on defense paying off

RALEIGH, N.C. --- The standings may not show it, but the Carolina Hurricanes are playing solid hockey these days. They aren't on any kind of hot streak, but for a team that was as rudderless as it gets two months ago, netting 19 points in their last 16 games is positive hockey. And finding ways to generate points sometimes means winning grinders, something the Hurricanes achieved...

RALEIGH. N.C. - The Carolina Hurricanes may believe the NHL All-Star Game break is coming at the wrong time. The...

Rutherford: Pitkanen likely out until March

Canes general manager Jim Rutherford said today that defenseman Joni Pitkanen may not return to the lineup until the first week of March. Pitkanen suffered a concussion Dec. 6 against the Calgary Flames. He then underwent knee surgery Jan. 3, when the team announced he would likely need about four weeks to rehab the injury. "He's coming along," Rutherford said. "...

Surviving the deadline: Carolina Hurricanes edition

The months and weeks before the trade deadline are both my favorite and least favorite time of the season because while it is exciting to see some key players switch teams, it is unbearable to see the hundreds of articles and trade rumors from fans who think that x team can get a big return for a player with an expiring contract. The Hurricanes are going to be sellers this deadline...

Which Play Was the Bruins Amica Coverage Play of the Week?

The All-Star break is upon us, and while it may seem like just yesterday that the Bruins were hoisting a Stanley Cup banner to the TD Garden rafters, the B's have reached some hard-earned time off.

Send it to or tweet @HarrisonMooney. They say that January is the most depressing month of the year. The weather is gloomy, it's just after Christmas when Christmas debt...

Carolina Hurricanes vs.Winnipeg Jets 1/23/12 Scoring Chances

Cam Ward, Jeff Skinner, a strong penalty kill and a ton of missed shots. What are the main reasons why the Hurricanes won this game. When your team is outchanced 15-8 and only records two shots on goal in the third period and wins despite that, it's usually a case of the goalie standing on his head and Cam Ward had to do that in the Canes 2-1 win over the Jets. Although, he...

Jets-Hurricanes Preview

Playing in the NHL's weakest division has helped the Winnipeg Jets stay in the hunt despite a lengthy slump. Another victory over the last-place Carolina Hurricanes would be a nice start to their six-game road swing, though they'll have to do it without leading goal scorer Evander Kane.
