About Last Night: Two points

About Last Night: Two points

Photo by Chris Tanouye/ It wasn’t the prettiest of wins, but sometimes that’s how you’ve got to get it done. The Carolina Hurricanes beat the Ottawa Senators 3-2 in a shootout Thursday night, securing two points thanks to three straight saves from Frederik Andersen in the shootout and a heady make from Andrei Svechnikov. The Canes certainly weren’t their sharpest against the Senators, seeing a 1-0 lead slip to a 2-1 deficit before Nino Niederreiter forced overtime late in the third period. Carolina lost the Corsi % battle, something that rarely ever happens,...

Canes bookend Senators, escape with shootout win

Photo by Chris Tanouye/ The Carolina Hurricanes defeated the Ottawa Senators, 3-2, in a shootout Thursday night at Canadian Tire Centre. Winning fixes everything. Or at the very least, it makes the rougher parts of your game seem not that bad. So instead of having to worry about an uncharacteristically lackluster performance from the top-six and being outshot 39-29 by the third worst team in the league, the Carolina Hurricanes will be able to fly back home happy and two points richer thanks to a 3-2 shootout win. To be fair, it was certainly a strange game, with no fans...

Carolina Hurricanes at Ottawa Senators: Lineups and Game Discussion

Photo by Gregg Forwerck/NHLI via The Hurricanes will make a change on the blue line as they head to Canada’s capital tonight. The Hurricanes will take the ice against somewhat of a rarity tonight: A team that’s beaten them, as they look to avenge a home loss to Ottawa in November. The lineup will mostly look the same as it did for Tuesday night’s thrilling overtime win over the Vegas Golden Knights, with one key exception: Ethan Bear, who’s been a healthy scratch for several games, will draw back in for the first time since Jan. 13, with Rod Brind’Amour...

Three Big Prospect Surprises in the First Half

Photo by Gregg Forwerck/NHLI via The Hurricanes excel at finding high upside players in each round of the draft, ensuring that the team will stay competitive for a long time. The Carolina Hurricanes are one of the best drafting teams in the NHL. Even without a true elite prospect in their pipeline, the Hurricanes manage to boast one of the best and deepest pipelines in the entire league. A lot of this is due to the Hurricanes and their scouts’ ability to identify talent in each round of the draft. They’re willing to bet on players with high upside and are in a...

Photo by Gregg Forwerck/NHLI via Hello, Canada, we meet again! Fresh off of a thrilling overtime victory over the Pacific-leading Vegas Golden Knights, the Carolina Hurricanes head north. They hit the metaphorical road to Canada for the first time this calendar year (their last stop there was Vancouver in December) to take on the Ottawa Senators. The Senators are about as different from the Golden Knights as you can get; yet, the last time the Hurricanes lined up against them, Ottawa came away victorious after a wild third period which saw four total goals in about...

Quick Whistles: Aho’s Continued Rise to Super Stardom, Staal’s Remarkable Goal Drought, and Hurricanes Rankings

James Guillory-USA TODAY Sports Sebastian Aho continues to take leaps forward in his path to super stardom and being the leader of the Hurricanes’ top-five offense. Another year, another giant leap forward for Carolina Hurricanes rising superstar Sebastian Aho. With every season, Aho has either built upon an already established strong suit in his game or added new wrinkles to an ever-growing arsenal of skillsets. This year hasn’t featured some sort of dramatic development in what he wasn’t already able to do. He was already an elite 5-on-5 offensive producer,...

About Last Night: Not So Perfect Storm

Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports Hurricanes blew an early two-goal lead and experienced a series of defensive collapses against the Devils on Saturday. The Carolina Hurricanes ran into a perfect storm of calamities on and leading up to Saturday night up in the tri-state. The only thing that could have made it worse would have been a healthy Dougie Hamilton playing in the game and scoring that seventh goal against. At least we can all take solace in knowing that didn’t happen. To the tune of a 7-4 final score, the Hurricanes’ three-game winning streak screeched to a...
