GAME DAY: Carolina Hurricanes



Let's see. When we last saw the Canes, if I'm not mistaken, they were coming from behind with an Eric Staal hat trick to cancel out a Bryan Little hat trick to win a dramatic game in the third period.

I wasn't a part of "we" in this case. One of the few games I missed this season; I was off somewhere else acting like a serf. Razor, Frenchie, and Shooter tell me I missed a good time.

What? Oh yes:

The Canes are currently stuck in 9th place and man do they want to claw into the Top 8. They're contending with the Buffalo Sabres, the Florida Panthers, and the fast-declining New York Rangers for the 8th spot; if they win tonight's game, they pull ahead of Florida and New York into slot #7. If we win...well, they'll be mighty frustrated and that'd be hella funny as all hell in hell in July.

Word on the street is that a bunch of Cane fans are travelling to Atlanta for this game, possibly in retaliation for the now-legendary Thrash-fan road trip in January.

It sure is nice to hear phillips rockin. This really is a town that will support hockey if you put a good product on the ice.

Rich Peverley is doing the unthinkable. He's making Don Waddell look like a freakin' genius. I was at the game and the last ten minutes I was jumping up and down like a school girl who just saw Hannah Montana for the first time. It was great. LOVED shutting up all those Canes fans. Kovalchuk, Little, Peverley, Bogosian, Enstrom, Lehtonen. It's a better foundation than a lot of people think. A good draft and a FA pickup here and there, and this little stretch could be a sign of things to come for next year.
