Found October 18, 2013 on The Nosebleeds:

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 and the ‘Canes game-winning goal came from 174 feet down ice in the third period. From his own zone, Carolina defenseman Ron Hainsey cleared the puck off the boards and down into Toronto’s zone, where it kicked off the endboards and managed to maneuver its way past Bernier’s stick, deflect off the goaltender’s skate and into the net. The weird goal made it 3-2 in favor of Carolina, the eventual final score. There was some question as to whether or not the play should have been called dead due to the new hybrid icing rule, but the officials determined that Carolina’s Radek Dvorak reached the faceoff dots first, keeping the play alive. After the game, Bernier made no excuses for the misplay. “It was just a bad mistake by my part. I looked up and see where my options were. The puck was probably spinning a lot, and I misjudged it.” [FTW] The post The Carolina Hurricanes scored a 174 foot game-winning goal against Jonathan Bernier appeared first on The Nosebleeds.

There are some good vibes in Raleigh this week as the Hurricanes have earned three points in two games and started their road trip off on the right foot by defeating the Toronto Maple Leafs.

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. There weren't any stretches where the Canes were outplayed but a couple of mistakes put themselves down 2-0 in the second period and absolutely nothing was going their way through the first 40 minutes of the game or so. Despite having...

What A Night

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail, On a night when Nicklas Kronwall was taken off the ice on a stretcher, Jonathan Bernier gave up a goal borrowed from the playbook of his former partner in L.A., and the last two teams fell from the ranks of the unbeaten, your first thought was to check the skies and see if there was a full moon out. Yes, it was that freaky kind...
