Game 80 By the Numbers: Hurricanes at Rangers

With last night’s 4-1 loss to the New York Rangers, the Carolina Hurricanes are mercifully officially eliminated from playoff contention and it was fitting that a game like this would be the final nail in the coffin. The Rangers outplayed and skated circles around the Hurricanes in route to a win and this was with them missing a key player in defenseman Ryan McDonagh. Yes, the...

Manny Malhotra & the "third line"

Right now, one of the rumors circulating around the Carolina Hurricanes is their desire to add a third line center before the trade deadline. This figured not to be an issue coming into the year because the Hurricanes had a lot of natural centers on their roster and could have filled the hole from within. Or at least that's how it seemed on paper. Through the pre-season and 57...

Hurricanes Trade Deadline Outlook

With only five games remaining before the trade deadline, the Hurricanes find themselves in an interesting but uncommon position. They are only one point out of a playoff spot with games in hand against some of the teams they are competing with, but most would argue that this isn't a playoff team. The Canes have been woefully inconsistent this year and could easily be a bottom...

Travis Yost: The Shift

I promised I'd find a way to get a full(er) video of Riley Nash's goal -- Carolina's fourth on the evening -- because it was the defensive zone calamity to end all others. Here it is: There are so many things to look at there. But let's see if we can break this down frame by frame. Ottawa has on their "physical lineup" -- Jared Cowen (with Erik...

Shot quality revisited: Going to the net

The Hurricanes have been an extremely frustrating team to watch this year. There are some nights where they look like a team that can contend for a playoff spot and even when they don't win, they've been able to earn points in games where they've had to dig themselves out of an early hole. Still, the team's play has been uneven as a whole and the Canes now find themselves...

Hurricanes Week In Review 12/23 - 12/30

Three games, three losses, one point. That's all that really needs to be said about the past seven days for the Hurricanes, who have been slowly playing their way out of contention. They have won only two games of the last 10 and the last three losses are probably the most frustrating of the bunch. Not because the team was blown out or closely outplayed. In fact, it's more...

It's only December but the Hurricanes season has already been quite the roller coaster ride and the high points haven't lasted very long. That's why it's a little hard to get excited about the team's three game win-streak, because no one knows if it will develop into a great run or if the Canes will follow it up by dropping the next four or five games. That'...

Game 30 By the Numbers: Sharks at Hurricanes

If the Hurricanes were going to have a bad game, last night's matchup against the San Jose Sharks would have been a solid bet. After all, the Sharks are one of the best teams in the Western Conference while the Canes have been treading water in the lowly Metropolitan Division. San Jose is also a top-ten team in terms of possession, goal differential, goals per game, goals allowed...
