Hurricanes look to new leadership this season

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) At first glance, this looks a lot like the same Carolina Hurricanes team that missed the playoffs for a fifth straight year. The new faces in new places are the guys calling the shots, not taking them. The Hurricanes kept their roster largely intact this offseason. Instead, they're counting on the new management team of coach Bill Peters and general manager Ron...

Justin Faulk: Building Block or Centerpiece?

“Rebuilding” in sports is usually a long, painful process and the Hurricanes have seemingly been stuck in one for the last four years or so.  It wasn’t planned for it to end up like this, but the reality is that the Hurricanes have finished out of the playoffs in seven of the last eight seasons and there have been indications of changes being ahead this off-season.

Game 78 By the Numbers: Devils at Hurricanes

The Hurricanes point-streak ends at five-games as they dropped a 3-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils last night in what was a pretty uneventful game overall. Carolina continued their recent trend of staring the game off on a poor note, falling behind 1-0 in the first period and using the rest of the night to play catch-up. Things weren’t nearly as bad as they’ve been in recent...

Game 77 By the Numbers: Stars at Hurricanes

As sports fans, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the emotion of a game and get jazzed up over a win even when the season is basically over. Nobody likes to lose, but all winning does at this point is worsen the Hurricanes draft position, so it’s important to keep your eyes focused on the process more than the results. If the Canes are just squeaking out wins while relying on goaltending...

Neutral Zone Breakdown: Open Door Policy

Tracking zone entries has been all the rage in the hockey analytics community this year and the main thing we look at is how often a team/player carries the puck into the offensive zone as opposed to dumping it in.

If you’re looking to use the rest of the season to dig out some positives with the Hurricanes future, last night’s 2-1 shootout loss to the Ottawa Senators probably didn’t provide you with much. On the other hand, if you are just looking for entertaining hockey the rest of the way, then this was the game for you. Sure, the final score may not indicate it, but this was a very...
