Do the Hurricanes play better in front of Justin Peters?

Something that I have learned from years of watching hockey and doing statistical analysis is that tryign to predict goaltending is losing a battle. Their performance is such so random on a year-to-year basis and every single one of them is prone to ups-and-down. Some are more extreme than others, but the model remains true for just about every goaltender in the league. A fine example...

Matt Karash: The Justin Peters blog

If you hate the long introductions that I sometimes include with this type of blog, just skip down to the ------- where I get to the headline stuff. Only about 1/3 into the 2013-14 season, Carolina Hurricanes fans have been treated a number of great people stories already. Even before the season started, we witnessed undersized but dynamic Sergey Tolchinsky enter the Canes...

Hurricanes' third-string goalie Peters building confidence

RALEIGH, N.C. -- It seems like the Carolina Hurricanes (6-7-3) have rarely played with a lead this season. It had been awhile, actually -- the last time Carolina scored first was the last time they faced the Islanders back on October 19 in New York. They won that game, too. Radek Dvorak scored the first goal just 6:39 into the first period, and the 1-0 cushion held up against...

Storm Aftermath: Justin Peters

As a person, it's really hard to dislike Carolina goaltender Justin Peters. Ever since he has been a part of the Hurricanes organization, Peters has worked hard at every level and has never complained about things like playing time or not getting enough opportunities in the NHL. There have been a few instances where Peters was passed over for the Canes back-up job when he had...

Peters could be Canes' long-term answer in goal

Just as the Carolina Hurricanes were finally getting healthy, goaltender Cam Ward went down with a knee injury.

Finding a replacement for Justin Peters

One of the Carolina Hurricanes' unrestricted free agents who hasn't been talked about much is goaltender Justin Peters. You may remember him as the guy who was Cam Ward's back-up in 2010-11 and was a complete sieve whenever he was forced into action, which was only in 12 games. However, you may also remember him from last season when he posted a .931 save percentage in...
