Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- The Ottawa Senators looked as good as they have all season, launching forty-seven shots in the direction of Carolina Hurricanes netminder Cam Ward. And, on most every quality chance Thursday night, Ward turned 'em away, stealing two big points the hard-way for his team in the process. Carolina 3, Ottawa 2 [OT]. For the majority of sixty regulation mi...

Hurricanes hang in, beat Sens in OT

Jay Harrison scored the overtime winner for the Carolina Hurricanes, and was quick to credit Cam Ward for the victory. The Hurricanes' goalie made 45 saves on Thursday night as Carolina escaped Ottawa with a 3-2 victory over the Senators. Ward's heroics, which included 16 saves in a chaotic second period in which Carolina was outshot 17-3, helped set up Harrison's winner...

Ward, Harrison lift Hurricanes past Senators

OTTAWA (AP) -- Cam Ward made 45 saves and Jay Harrison scored 2:19 into overtime to rally the Carolina Hurricanes to a 3-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night. Harrison's winner came off a scramble in front as he banged a loose puck past Senators goalie Craig Anderson. Chad LaRose and Alexander Semin scored in regulation for the Hurricanes, who have won five...

Hurricanes 3, Senators 2, OT

Cam Ward made 45 saves and Jay Harrison scored 2:19 into overtime to rally the Carolina Hurricanes to a 3-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Thursday night. Harrison's winner came off a scramble in front as he banged a loose puck past Senators goalie Craig Anderson. Chad LaRose and Alexander Semin scored in regulation for the Hurricanes, who have won five of their last seven...

Senators' Spezza: back surgery was only option

Ottawa Senators center Jason Spezza said having back surgery for a herniated disk was the only way he was going to feel better. ''It was really bad,'' he said. ''It got to the point where there was no way I was going to be able to play, so it makes it frustrating. ''But there wasn't really an option once we got down to it.'' The 29-year...

Searching for Scoring Depth

Most of the talk surrounding the Carolina Hurricanes right now is centered around how well some of their top forwards are playing right now. Eric Staal is off to his best start in quite some time, Alexander Semin has been producing well and so have both Jordan Staal and Jeff Skinner. The fact that these four are providing most of the offense is a good thing because the Hurricanes...

Borowiecki Returned To Bingo

Via the Sens release: "The Ottawa Senators today re-assigned defenceman Mark Borowiecki to the club's American Hockey League affiliate, the Binghamton Senators." While I thought Boro had played solid in his short stint (and I loved that hit on Malkin), among the Bingo D call-ups he was averaging the least TOI per game (12:59). With Lundin returning it was only...

Travis Yost: Erik Karlsson / Marc Methot Pairing Dominating Competition

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- It's rather unfortunate that the Ottawa Senators dropped last night's game in extra-time. Unlike last week's tilt in Raleigh, the Senators pretty-much pulverized the Hurricanes for sixty minutes and change on Thursday. Cam Ward was spectacular, but it still must pain the coaching staff and team in general to leave a point behind...

Matt Karash: Fantasy Hockey Review: Carolina Hurricanes

I get a decent number of emails and Hockeybuzz messages with fantasy hockey related questions. How does the power play look? What are chances of ____ moving up to Staal line? Etc. So with a couple days between Canes games, I figured I would take a shot at evaluating Canes players for fantasy hockey leaguers. Cam Ward. He was off to an atrocious start heading into Monday...

Travis Yost: GAMEDAY: Ottawa Looks to Stay Hot at Scotiabank Place

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- The Ottawa Senators (6-3-1) have come out of the gate strong, thanks largely to an impressive record (4-0-1) on home-ice to start the year. On Thursday, they'll be tested again at Scotiabank Place, this time by a Carolina Hurricanes team that's already bested them once this season. When Ottawa and Carolina met one week ago at...

Game 9: Hurricanes at Senators

Even though the Hurricanes won last night's game in overtime, their performance reminded me a lot of how they played last year. Not only were they heavily outshot, but the Senators had control for most of the game and the Hurricanes were forced to play in their own end more often than they would have liked. They were able to stay in the game and force overtime thanks to great...

Thursday News & Notes

With the clock winding down and and the visiting Buffalo Sabres pressing with an extra attacker, Jakob Silfverberg was one of the players Paul MacLean called upon to preserve Ottawa’s one goal lead. As Buffalo worked the puck back to the point and fired, Silfverberg was struck on his left hand. Although he eventually got back up, picked up his stick and finished his shift,...

Hurricanes-Flyers Preview

Aside from a win over the Carolina Hurricanes last week, the Philadelphia Flyers have mostly had a hard time scoring goals. Another matchup with Carolina could be just what they need to get on track offensively. The Flyers try to continue their recent domination of the series when they host the Hurricanes on Saturday. Philadelphia's 3.2 goals per game last season were tied...
