HURRICANES

Avalanche > Hurricanes

When the Canes heard their first game back from break is the NHL’s worst Colorado Avalanche:

When the Canes realized they just lost to the Colorado Avalanche 2-1 in OT:

The Canes were rusty and played well enough to win. However, they were out of position on a lot of scoring chances. Also, they had serious issues getting the puck out of the neutral zone and were out hustled to the puck on many occasions. The Canes defense kept them in the game until overtime, where the Avs were able to drop one in with roughly 30 seconds left.

Canes Goal Of The Game: Easy, there was only one.

 

Storm Category: Category 1 Hurricane. It should be lower since they lost to the damn Avalanche, but they got a point.

Whats Next?:

The Canes playoff chances aren’t dead yet! They sit seven points down from Toronto for the final playoff spot with two games in hand. Who comes to town Sunday? Toronto. So that game seems important.

Sidenote: It’s doesn’t seem the Canes are taking our suggestions for dance moves or in game music. It’s interesting they lost.
