Hurricanes get 6-5 shootout win over Flyers to end the season

That the Carolina Hurricanes won Sunday in their last game of the season wasn't that meaningful. The Hurricanes aren't going to the playoffs and nothing can ease that disappointment.

Jeff Skinner is actually improving?

Rookie seasons like the one Jeff Skinner had come around once every so often. As an 18 year old, he had a 31-goal season, recorded 61 points and produced at an astounding rate of 2.49 points per 60 minutes during 5-on-5 play. A rookie putting up those kind of numbers is rare and it's unheard of for an 18-year old to have that kind of year. Having a rookie season like this will...

'Canes Insider: Taking it slow with Skinner's return

The concussion suffered by left wing Jeff Skinner earlier this month is reason for concern in the organization. Skinner is a young second-year forward who has been savvy at avoiding big hits, for the most part. He gained Rookie of the Year honors for 2010-11 after playing in every game.
