ALN: Homecoming Spoiled

ALN: Homecoming Spoiled

Thanks to some fortuitous bounces, the Hurricanes spoiled Jeff Skinner’s return to Raleigh. Jeff Skinner got his moment of glory last night in his return to Raleigh, but the Carolina Hurricanes got the last word as they defeated the Buffalo Sabres 4-3. As the Canes try to climb their way back up the standings they need to find ways to win games against the teams ahead of them, and that’s exactly what they did last night. Nothing was pretty, there were some very lucky bounces for Carolina, but in the end they found a way to win and that is what matters. The Good - Puck Luck On any...

Jeff Skinner’s Dream Season Continues

Jeff Skinner’s Dream Season Continues

Skinner has been on-fire since stepping on the ice for Buffalo way back in training camp. Friday was a big day for Sabres forward Jeff Skinner.

Recap: Late push from Sabres not enough in Raleigh

Recap: Late push from Sabres not enough in Raleigh

Buffalo turned the pressure up to ten after falling down by two, but could not complete the comeback. For the first time in his National Hockey League career, Jeff Skinner took the ice in Raleigh as a visiting hockey player. Unfortunately for Skinner and the Sabres, the ultimate result was not what originally was desired. The first period began with both teams almost equally going back-and-forth. Buffalo had found themselves a handful of opportunities but goaltender Curtis McElhinney was ready for the task at hand. Carolina would find themselves getting on the scoreboard first, in what...

Recap: Canes bounce back with 4-3 win

Wackiness abounded on Friday at PNC as the Canes got over on Skinner and the Sabres. RALEIGH — Of course Jeff Skinner scored a goal in his return to PNC Arena on Friday night. But the Carolina Hurricanes upstaged their erstwhile young dynamo thanks to a hat trick of Buffalo Sabres own goals and a Justin Faulk one-punch takedown on their way to an 4-2 win, their sixth win in the last seven games. Three times, the Canes were rewarded with goals that went in directly off of a Buffalo defender. The first opened the scoring, Micheal Ferland getting credit for a goal that looked like hockey...

Welcome Back, Jeff Skinner

Welcome Back, Jeff Skinner

His first appearance in Raleigh as a member of the Buffalo Sabres awaits tonight, and it provides a chance for a trip down memory lane. Jeff Skinner made a left turn for the first time today. Entering PNC Arena from the loading dock and security entrance at the north end, behind the Olympia entrance, the cavernous service area tapers down as you get closer to the ice. Roughly underneath row P of section 112, the service area intersects a hallway that nearly circumnavigates the arena level, interrrupted only by the Carolina Hurricanes’ locker room under the west seats. To get to the...

Sabres’ Jeff Skinner ready for first meeting against Hurricanes

BUFFALO – Sabres winger Jeff Skinner knows returning to Carolina, where he became the face of the Hurricanes over eight seasons, will have special meaning.

During some lean seasons, Skinner, who has already scored 29 goals in 43 games, was usually the Hurricanes’ most ... Read the full article
