Carolina Hurricanes

The Carolina Hurricanes and San Jose Sharks, two teams with identical records this season but vastly different in their recent histories, squared off in Raleigh Friday night. Both teams started the night 5-3-1 on the season and ranked second in their division. By the end of the contest, Brock McGinn won the game in a shootout for the Hurricanes but not before the Sharks landed some blows and the Hurricanes came roaring back with a relentless attack that has become their signature. Being tied 3-3 at the end of regulation was not really a surprise, these two teams are that even. But, getting the two points even this early in the season was huge for the Hurricanes, and McGinn's two-goal night played a big part. Hurricanes Punched in the Face Unfortunately for the home team, the Sharks came ready to play and shoot, and they did so effectively. Early in the first period, it was clear that the Sharks were bringing it and the Hurricanes were not. I've noted that the...

Carolina Hurricanes

The Carolina Hurricanes are enjoying a fabulous Octoberfest. Not to be confused with "Oktoberfest", which is one of the world's longest running festivals featuring lots of beer and activities over a 16-18-day period. Originating in Germany, Oktoberfest celebrations are held all over the world. Currently, there is an Octoberfest of a different kind being held in Raleigh, NC. While this is not a festival of beer, wine, and traditional activities, it is instead a festival of good feeling and excitement about a team with a new coach and a new culture to start the season. It is likely, however, that many adult beverages have been tilted back by "Caniacs" in celebration of their team's outstanding results thus far during this October. They are 5-3-1 with 11 points and sit atop the Metropolitan Division as of this writing. No Octoberfests Under Peters Looking at recent past results reveals that October was sometimes not a kind month for the Hurricanes. Under former...

Carolina Hurricanes

The Carolina Hurricanes plugged in their power play Monday night in their game against the Detroit Red Wings and finally found the juice. Their man-advantage has been more like a big-city blackout since the start of the season, but the Hurricanes finally found the switch that turned on the current and lit the lamp in the Motor City...twice. The Red Wings are going through their own set of challenges as they try to rebuild their team. It's not important who the Hurricanes were playing or who they scored on to break the blackout. Getting power play goals from Justin Faulk and Michael Ferland was exactly what this team needed. Hurricanes Power Play Blackout While there has been a lot to talk about and be excited about so far this season regarding the Hurricanes - their "young guns" having fun, their fast-paced offense, and the team's overall response to the leadership of new head coach Rod Brind'Amour, the power play blackout has been an area of concern. Before...

Toronto Marlies

In today's News & Notes, the Carolina Hurricanes have activated their starting goaltender from the injured reserve, Jaret Anderson-Dolan has been returned to his WHL club and the Toronto Marlies have signed a familiar face. Related: NHL News & Notes: Tuch, Schneider & More Hurricanes Activate Darling From Injured Reserve The Carolina Hurricanes have activated goaltender Scott Darling from the injured reserve. The team has also assigned him to the Charlotte Checkers, their AHL affiliate, for a conditioning stint. Darling has been out of action since suffering a lower-body injury on Sept. 30 in a preseason contest against the Nashville Predators. Though Darling struggled in his first season with the Hurricanes, posting a record of 13-21-7 with a goals-against average of 3.18 and a save percentage of .888, he should still be the team's best option in net upon his return to NHL action. In his absence, the Hurricanes have gone 4-3-1 with Curtis McElhinney and...
