By the Numbers: Investigating Goaltending Storylines

By the Numbers: Investigating Goaltending Storylines

The Hurricanes have long been known for lack of average to above average goaltending talent. Does their style of play foster bad goaltending metrics? Cam Ward made his first return to PNC Arena with the Blackhawks on Monday night for a game in which both he and Scott Darling played very well against their former teams. Given the irony of that situation, I thought it would be a fitting week to assess the goaltending condition in Carolina and across the league as a whole. The age old Canes narrative has been that the team severely lacks top end scoring and decent goaltending talent. As...

Blackhawks blow 2-goal lead and fall in OT, their 8th straight loss

Thanks to his old friends in North Carolina, the day and night belonged to Cam Ward on Monday. But what the former Hurricanes goalie really wanted to do was share it with his new friends from Chicago. “We are going through a bit of tough time right now where we’re extremely desperate for a win,”...

Recap: Canes come back, top Ward, Blackhawks

Recap: Canes come back, top Ward, Blackhawks

Cam Ward’s first visit to PNC Arena as a member of the opposition ended in the Hurricanes scoring three straight goals to steal a win. Cam Ward played 668 regular season games as a member of the Carolina Hurricanes, but in his first appearance at PNC Arena Monday night as a member of another team, his former club got the better of him. The Hurricanes came back from a 2-0 deficit to tie the game, skating away with a 3-2 overtime win over the Chicago Blackhawks on the strength of Sebastian Aho’s goal 1:16 into the extra session. Early on, the Hurricanes looked like they were doing...

Canes vs. Blackhawks: Game Night Hub

Welcome back, Cam. Could you please allow five goals? No hard feelings. The Carolina Hurricanes are set to have a special night against the Chicago Blackhawks, with longtime franchise star and Stanley Cup champion Cam Ward in net for Chicago — the first time he’s played at PNC arena in an opposing jersey. Unfortunately, once the puck is dropped, the Hurricanes will need to do everything they can to put puck after puck past Ward, as they are 1-4-2 in the past seven games and need to get a win at home. Speaking of pucks and nets, Scott Darling (1-2-1, 3.00 GAA) will get his third...

Cam Ward returns to Carolina as Blackhawks visit Hurricanes

Cam Ward returns to Carolina as Blackhawks visit Hurricanes

Chicago looks to end its seven-game losing streak. Cam Ward will return to Carolina where his NHL career began when the Blackhawks visit the Hurricanes on Monday night at PNC Arena. Ward played his first 13 NHL seasons, including winning the 2006 Conn Smythe Trophy as Stanley Cup playoffs MVP, with the Hurricanes prior to signing with the Blackhawks in July. Carolina’s first-year head coach Rod Brind’Amour was the captain of the 2006 championship team with Ward. The Hurricanes are expected to play a video tribute for Ward, who should start for a slumping Blackhawks team on a seven-game...

Canes at Blackhawks: Preview and Storm Advisory

The Hurricanes will try to snap an awful five game losing streak tonight in Chicago.

Stock Report: 3 up, 3 down from a pair of Hawks’ losses

Chicago’s lost four in a row. We look into some trends from that slide. The Chicago Blackhawks have arrived at their first slump of the season, losing their fourth game in a row on Thursday night, a 4-0 defeat against the Edmonton Oilers. Let’s see what the team trends are after back-to-back defeats in western Canada over the last two nights: Three up Goaltending Once again, it’s hard to pin either of the last two losses on Corey Crawford or Cam Ward. Crawford kept the Blackhawks close against the Canucks, as Chicago regressed over the final 30 minutes of the game and allowed...

3 takeaways from the Blackhawks' loss to the Oilers, including a bad power play and good Cam Ward

The Blackhawks wouldn’t make excuses, so here’s one for them. This team was exhausted playing its sixth game in nine days, and it’s a small miracle they took the Oilers to overtime Sunday night at the United Center before losing 2-1. The Hawks actually outshot the Oilers 32-26 and were in a position...
