For the sixth time this season and the second time in as many nights the Hurricanes skated to a shootout. However, unlike Friday night the Canes got the win! Behind shootout goals by Lee Stempniak, Sebastian Aho, and two great saves by Cam Ward the Canes pulled out the 2-1 shootout win!
Storm Category: Category 2 Hurricane. We’re being stingy with the rating since we already gave a 5 this week. Also, Buffalo is a team we’re supposed to beat.
Goal of the Game: Sebastian Aho’s shootout goal. This 19 year old is pretty nasty.
Hurricane Of The Game: Cam Ward
Wardo stopped 22 of 23 shots and remedied his mistakes from the night before to lead the Canes to victory. There are a lot of Ward haters in Caniac Nation but not here at Raleigh City Sports. Yea, he can give up soft goals, but it seems he has a good sense of fashion:
Guy We’re Gonna Hate On Today: Evander Kane
The former Thrasher has had his issues with Johnny Law . So combine that with the fact he scored last night and we’re giving him a healthy dose of shade (Did i use that right?).
Whats Next?: The Canes continue their home stand with a visit from the always annoying Detroit Red Wings. The soccer crew tell me Detroit is a front runner for one of the MLS spots we’re going after. Lets make sure we get loud and get a win because I think that determines if MLS gives us a team. Not sure though, we should probably look into it.
Sorry for the delay this morning. Ya boy had what we call in the hockey biz an ‘lower body injury’. No worries I’m gonna gut it out and hobble into the PNC for NC State vs Fairfield this afternoon.
