Coyotes come to the Second City looking for a second wind

After collapsing in Boston and not capitalizing in Columbus, Arizona is just looking to make something click. It hasn’t been easy. Any luster of the trades, the new additions and new coaching from the offseason have long since gone. The chances of doing something noticable went with it. And now it’s about pride. It’s about showing up. Saturday night in Columbus, that just didn’t happen. Antti Raanta let in a soft goal a minute into the game and after that, it was a powerskating session from end to end. Anthony Duclair had some chances. he didn’t score. Jakob Chychrun had some...

Don’t Trade Erik Karlsson

Rumours are Swirling Around the Captain The writing at Silver Seven Sens exists in an oftentimes nebulous middle ground between fandom and what might be considered traditional sports journalism. As the old saying goes: “There’s no cheering in the press box”. There is definitely cheering on these pages, and I actually don’t believe that it has a negative impact on the quality of the work, but we do strive to be factual and thoughtful in our analysis. On this topic, however, there is no room to be measured. This is a plea to Guy Boucher, and Pierre Dorion — but especially Eugene...

About Last Night: Fool’s Gold

For a brief moment, it seemed like the Canes figured out how to win again. Then they reminded us that they were never really in the game to begin with. You know what this is? Lucy, Charlie Brown and the football. The Carolina Hurricanes had it on a tee for us—a two-goal comeback late in the third period, driven by effort unseen in two games prior? Surely they’ve come back to the light. Surely they won’t pull the ball away at the last second and leave us staring upwards, wondering why we fell for it again. But the tying efforts were a mirage, a paper-maché representation of hope...

And we fans of the only important NHL team west of the Rockies got see how important it is to to have all your top players healthy. Just in case we forgot.

Recap: Hurricanes Fall to Kings in OT

Recap: Hurricanes Fall to Kings in OT

Carolina comes back in the third period, but loses 3-2 late in overtime. The Hurricanes drop another one on the road trip, this time to the Kings with a heartbreaking 3-2 loss. First of all, no matter the outcome, our thoughts are with the people of Los Angeles affected by the tragic fire. Now to the game. What we learned in the first period is that, yes, Jonathan Quick is in fact a great goalie. We knew this, but sometimes a visual aid helps. Sebastian “Seabass” Aho had back-to-back snipe opportunities, and Quick shut them down in spectacular fashion. Williams missed a puck at the...

Senators Becoming a Laughing Stock as they lose 5-0 Again

Ottawa loses their 11th in 12 games after an embarrassing display of what one would call “playing hockey” Three seasons ago, the Senators went on their California road trip in February with their playoff hopes hanging on by a thread. They miraculously won the first two games against Anaheim and Los Angeles, and coming into their last game against San Jose, the mood from fans (myself included) seemed to be “if they can win this, then I’m back in on this team.” Fast forward to present day, and the mood at the end of this three-game gauntlet (within a larger road-trip) is completely...

Recap: Stars Drop Three Straight as Dallas Cant Overcome Golden Knights in 5-3 Loss

The offense came in bunches through the middle frame but Dallas falls short to Vegas at home For the third and final meeting between the Dallas Stars and the Vegas Golden Knights it was proving to be another high stakes game. It was a fast and furious first period, that had Vegas with 11 shots on goal and Dallas with 5 early on. But it was the Golden Knights that were able to get one in past Ben Bishop to strike first with 7:47 left in the period. It was the first goal the Golden Knights have ever scored on Ben Bishop and it was Alex Tuch that squeaked it in past Bishop. 5:32 left in the...

Game 28 Preview: Ottawa Senators @ San Jose Sharks

Wrapping up the California road trip. If you’re anything like me, you could really catch up on some sleep after a couple late starts during the Senators’ annual California road trip. They come back East after tonight’s game versus San Jose, trying to squeeze out as many points as possible. Ottawa’s on a bit of a losing skid, going 1-9-1 in their last eleven games. Thursday’s game against the Kings gave some hope with the late comeback, as well as Erik Karlsson regaining his elite form. Although they only managed to come out with a single point, it’s hopefully a building block to...

Carolina Hurricanes vs Los Angeles Kings: Rosters and Game Discussion

The Hurricanes try to bounce back in LA against the Kings. Fresh off perhaps their most bitter loss of the season, the Carolina Hurricanes return to the ice against the Los Angeles Kings. The Canes hope to put this road trip and their season back on the rails, as they have gone 2-4-2 in their last eight contests to fall seven points out of the final Eastern Conference wildcard spot. The Hurricanes did not hold a morning skate this morning, so below are the probable lines: Jeff Skinner - Jordan Staal - Justin Williams Sebastian Aho - Derek Ryan - Teuvo Teravainen Brock McGinn - Victor...

Five teams within one point at the top of the division, and the Canes are on the outside looking in. 1. Columbus Blue Jackets: 37 Points (18-10-1) Despite losing a couple of games in a row this week, the Blue Jackets reign supreme in the Metropolitan Division. The Blue Jackets are 7-3-0 in their last 10 games and have a +12 goal differential. That’s with a 9.63% power play! The Blue Jackets are bound to trend towards the average and get up close to a 15-16% power play before the season ends. If the Blue Jackets had even a league-average power play unit, they would have 10 more goals...

Systems Analyst: What’s Killing the Carolina Hurricanes’ Penalty Kill

One of Carolina’s biggest strengths over the past few seasons has been anything but in 2017-18. After owning a top-three ranked penalty-killing unit for the vast majority of 2016-17, the Carolina Hurricanes are in a pickle. Their special teams units were extremely lackluster at the start of the year before starting to find their footing, but they remain the League’s third-worst team in both shorthanded and man-advantage situations. Our own Brett Finger already dissected the Canes’ PP struggles in a three-part series here, here and here (and it’s quite good), so I’ll take a brief...
