Philly would play the role of the relentless nemesis. Readers would have to endure their heroic Canes suffer chronic regulation losses since December 2006. Eight straight editions would have illustrations of Philly crushing the Hurricanes. POW! POP!
Carolina’s kryptonite would be black-caped Jeff Carter with 25 goals in the 2010-11 season. 9 goals and 25 assists in the past 11 games alone. BAMA!
Ah, but the Flyers overlooked the superhuman strength of Carolina’s offense. BOOM! CRASH! The reigning eighth seed Canes hit the ice pounding the Flyers black and blue. Holy hat trick, Staalman!
Jeff Skinner skates a victory lap in tight red and black spandex…
What happen? Where am I?
Oh yes…The Canes are definitely capable of beating the #1 Flyers at the Wells Fargo Center tonight. Despite Philadelphia being 6 for 7 at home, they have been sitting idle for four days, which could play a villainous role in this match-up.
Who’s in…Goalie Brian Boucher
