Notes and Quotes: Blues 5, Hurricanes 4 (SO)

Jeff Skinner, Bryan Bickell and Bill Peters spoke to the media after the Canes dropped their home finale. From the Coach Bill Peters: I thought there was real good pace to the game, both ways. They did a good job of activating their D, which made our forwards track and reload. There was a lot going on in the game. Very competitive game, high level. Real nice plays being made at both ends. The dangerous guys were dangerous. Tarasenko, Skinner, Aho was all over and had good jump, real good play by Tolchinsky on the Nordstrom goal. There were some good plays made both ways.

Systems Analyst: Lee Stempniak Scores His 200th Goal

His teammates did most of the leg work for him, but you don’t hit 200 if you can’t finish plays like this one. It hasn’t exactly been the best week for the Carolina Hurricanes, but there a few positives to take away. The return of Bryan Bickell has certainly been wonderful to see, and Jeff Skinner somehow elevating his game to yet another level has been nothing short of fantastic. One that may have slipped under the radar a bit was Lee Stempniak potting his 200th NHL goal on Tuesday, with the help of the aforementioned Skinner. Seems like an easy tap-in for Stempniak, but the...

The latter added two to his total against the Panthers, with his second of the game coming from some great work done by linemate Derek Ryan. It may seem like just another goal—especially when compared to some of...
