Hurricanes begin Peters' 1st training camp

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) It didn't take long during Carolina's first practice of training camp for the Hurricanes to figure out what new coach Bill Peters wants. The pace was faster than under previous regimes. There was more attention to detail, an almost rigid adherence to a plan. ''He comes in with a presence, a plan and an idea, and that's what you want,'&...

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.

Hurricanes' special teams fall flat in loss to Rangers

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Power play is supposed to denote some kind of advantage. It's supposed to give a hockey team the upper hand, putting them a man up against the opponent. But for the Carolina Hurricanes, it seems more like an impediment these days. On Friday, citing four power-play chances against the New York Rangers (34-26-4), the Hurricanes didn't convert a single one....

Sheltering Jeff Skinner

Goals have been very hard to come by for the Hurricanes this year, which is why Jeff Skinner is considered one of the team's most valuable players. His 23 goals ranks him 20th in the NHL and he is currently on-pace to finish the season with 35-36 goals. Even after a recent cold spell where he scored only twice in 13 games, Skinner is scoring at a 40-goal pace, which is more of...
