Tlusty, Jordan Staal obtain their goals for Canes

The zeroes were becoming conspicuous hard to ignore and even harder to explain. In the first eight games of the Carolina Hurricanes’ season Jiri Tlusty and Jordan Staal had zero goals. Both forwards had done their part in games grinding it out in the defensive zone forechecking giving the effort. Both had their offensive chances. Neither could put the puck in the net. And then...

Fitting Tim Gleason back into the lineup

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. Some other good news is that defenseman Tim Gleason, who missed time with a concussion, has begun skating with the team again and could return to the lineup as soon as next week. Gleason plays...

Hurricanes' game-winner from 174 feet out caroms of goalie's skate

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...

Top line wakes up; Canes beat Islanders 4-3

The Carolina Hurricanes found themselves in an unusual position Saturday – holding a lead in the third period. After rallying from two-goal deficits in the third the past two games the Canes outlasted the New York Islanders 4-3 in a Metropolitan Division game at Nassau Coliseum. Jiri Tlusty scoreless in the first eight games this season scored twice for the Canes (4-2-3). Jordan...

Faulk, Sekera become Canes’ stoppers

It’s turning into quite a work week for Carolina Hurricanes defensemen Justin Faulk and Andrej Sekera. Or in their case just another week. On Tuesday Faulk and Sekera often were on the ice with Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks at PNC Arena. On Thursday it often was Phil Kessel and Tyler Bozak of the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre. The Canes...

2013-14 Carolina Hurricanes Tickets - Top 5 Games

By Nick Tranfaglie of TiqIQ, Are the Carolina Hurricanes almost 50 percent better than they were last year? While that question is difficult to answer quantifiably, the Canes’ ticket prices are 46 percent more expensive this season than they were last year, hence the unanswerable query. This year at PNC Arena, the average price for Carolina Hurricanes tickets is $114, whereas...

Game 9 By the Numbers: Hurricanes at Islanders

Another night, another one-goal game for the Hurricanes and they managed to come out on the right side of the coin in yesterday's tilt against the New York Islanders. Although, this game was much different from the other close contests that the Hurricanes have been involved in this year. Instead of battling back from an early deficit, the Canes built a strong 3-0 lead in the...

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...
