Recap and Rank ‘Em: Hurricanes Blitz Islanders in 7-4 win

The Hurricanes scored at least five goals for the third straight game in tonight’s win. Defense went by the wayside tonight, as the Carolina Hurricanes and New York Islanders combined for 11 goals, with the home team winding up victorious 7-4. But Carolina went down early once again, making it four straight games in which they have given up the first goal. John Tavares struck four minutes into the first period, deflecting a Scott Mayfield shot from the blue line past a challenging Cam Ward for a quick lead. But in true Canes fashion, they began controlling play and eventually found the...

Carolina Hurricanes Weekly Thoughts: Big Wins, All-Star Justin Faulk, and Iron Man Cam Ward

Carolina Hurricanes Weekly Thoughts: Big Wins, All-Star Justin Faulk, and Iron Man Cam Ward

A 3-0-1 week from the Hurricanes has, once again, put them right in the middle of a competitive Eastern Conference playoff race. The strides that the Carolina Hurricanes have made since this time last year are astonishing. As of January 12, the Hurricanes are 19-15-7 and sit just three points behind Philadelphia Flyers who occupy the second Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference. Carolina has two games in hand on Philly. This past week, Carolina defeated the best team in the NHL in the Columbus Blue Jackets, a long-time Western Conference powerhouse in the St. Louis Blues, a Boston...

Recap and Rank ‘Em: Hurricanes Top Blue Jackets, 5-3

The Hurricanes faced the league’s top team for the first time this year as the Columbus Blue Jackets came to town. Tonight marked the first meeting of the year between the Hurricanes and the league leading Columbus Blue Jackets. Not only that, but two of the ‘Canes next five games following this one would be against the Jackets. This evening’s contest was the first time Carolina would have a chance to make an impression against the top team in the league, but early on they fell very short in that pursuit. The Blue Jackets drew first blood as Cam Atkinson beat Cam Ward on a wraparound...

Watch: Cam Ward robs Patrick Kane on a breakaway

The Hawks’ leading scorer couldnt beat the Canes’ netminder on a second period breakaway. Cam Ward hasn't had a ton of work tonight, but after Jonathan Toews opened the scoring for the Blackhawks he made a beautiful save on Patrick Kane to keep the score at 1-0. Ward stuck out his left leg to keep the league’s fifth-leading scorer from doubling the lead. Cam Ward stops Kane on a breakaway. #WardSaysNo #Redvolution #CARvsCHI pic.twitter.com/Kkr95CCbaB— Carolina Hurricanes (@NHLCanes) January 7, 2017

Recap: Carolina Hurricanes snap losing streak in 4-2 win over St. Louis Blues

Recap: Carolina Hurricanes snap losing streak in 4-2 win over St. Louis Blues

Two Derek Ryan goals and a 21-save performance by Cam Ward gave the Canes a rarity: a road win in St. Louis. The Carolina Hurricanes snapped a two-game losing streak Thursday night, welcoming Justin Faulk back to the lineup with a 4-2 win over the St. Louis Blues powered by two bookending goals by Derek Ryan. The Canes came to play early. Ryan put the visitors on the board early with a goal off the rush a minute into the game, all alone to the right of Blues goalie Jake Allen. A quick snap shot fooled Allen, who was slow in reacting to a shot to the far side of the net, and gave Ryan his...

Hurricanes Recall Michael Leighton From Charlotte

Hurricanes Recall Michael Leighton From Charlotte

The Hurricanes bring back Leighton while returning Daniel Altshuller to the Checkers. The Carolina Hurricanes have re-called goaltender Michael Leighton from Charlotte and have reassigned Daniel Altshuller back to Charlotte. Altshuller served as Cam Ward’s backup during Tuesday’s game versus New Jersey after Eddie Lack was diagnosed with a concussion. The Checkers are currently on a road trip through the upper Midwest, and Leighton will meet the Canes on their arrival to St. Louis later today. The Canes’ scheduled practice for today was cancelled. The official press release from the...

Hurricanes Recall Daniel Altshuller from Charlotte

The ‘Canes have brought up goaltender Daniel Altshuller from the Charlotte Checkers. The Hurricanes re-called goaltender Daniel Altshuller from Charlotte on Tuesday. Altshuller will join the team tonight in advance of their game against the New Jersey Devils. Altshuller will serve as the back-up goalie to Cam Ward, thus appearing to end Jorge Alves’ inspiring run in that role. The move comes following Eddie Lack’s diagnosis with a concussion. It is unclear as of now whether this concussion is a separate injury from the one that held Lack out for the better part of November and some of...

Cam Ward Is Keeping The Hurricanes In The Battle, But He Can’t Do It Alone

Cam Ward Is Keeping The Hurricanes In The Battle, But He Can’t Do It Alone

Ward’s steady performance has kept the team in contention for a playoff spot. For now. After the Carolina Hurricanes 3-2 win against the Chicago Blackhawks Friday night, Cam Ward sat at the bench with Mike Maniscalco for his first star interview. My initial reaction at the time was that Maniscalco was probably thinking “Fancy meeting you here.” In 13 wins this season, Ward has been named one of the three stars ten times, and he’s the only multiple recipient of the team's ‘Chop Wood/Carry Water’ award. Despite not wearing a letter, the veteran netminder and longest-tenured...

NHL-Highlights of Wednesday's NHL games

Highlights from National Hockey League games on Wednesday: Penguins 3, Hurricanes 2 Carl Hagelin scored the go-ahead goal with 4:15 remaining to finish another Pittsburgh third-period rally, as the Penguins beat the Carolina Hurricanes. Chris Kunitz scored the tying goal early in the third against goalie Cam Ward, while Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury stopped all 19 shots he faced after replacing an apparently ill Matt Murray (25 saves) at the start of the period. There were no penalties called -- the first such game in the NHL this season.
