Rask’s Impending Return is a Big Deal for the Canes

Rask’s Impending Return is a Big Deal for the Canes

Will a resurgent Victor Rask help solve Carolina’s scoring woes? How can the Carolina Hurricanes get the most out of Victor Rask? That’s the $16 million question. Since signing his six-year, $24 million contract extension in July of 2016 (of which four years and $16 million remain), Rask’s on-ice performance has been a mixed bag. The rushed Jordan Staal injury replacement turned big-money organizational centerpiece got off to a torrent start in October of 2016. Through the first month of the season, the Swedish pivot had points in eight straight games to start the season. Even at the...

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...

Quick Whistles: the Carolina Enigma-Canes

The Hurricanes stay alive thanks to a pair of wins over the Blackhawks, but scoring remains a concern. My Kingdom for a League-Average Goalie The Carolina Hurricanes are hoping that they finally have an answer to the never-ending goalie question. After an “okay” first two starts upon returning from his lower-body injury, Scott Darling has started to catch his stride. Over his last three starts, he is 2-0-1 with a .924 save percentage. The run of strong outings has bumped his save percentage for the season up to .913, which is four points higher than the current league-average of...

ALN: Aho caps comeback

On a night when Cam Ward returned to PNC Arena for the first time as a visitor, the Canes used a perfect game from the power play to erase a two-goal deficit and win in overtime. The Carolina Hurricanes flipped the script from their last game Monday night, overcoming a two-goal deficit to beat the Blackhawks in overtime. Sebastian Aho played hero in Cam Ward’s homecoming game, and the team’s power play continued its hot streak. Here are some key takeaways from the win. Aggressive overtime As head coach Rod Brind’Amour remarked on after the game, this overtime period was a polar...

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.

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...
