We are counting down to another crucial contest, but alas, I have no more nails to bite. So grab a beer and a handful of antacids, it’s going to be another panic inducing evening.
Smooth yourself with flashbacks of last night’s win…
“We feel we have arguably the best goaltender in the world,” Maurice told the media in Buffalo.
Yep, I could not agree more. Cam Ward’s performance had me grinning like a twitterpated schoolgirl all day. There are a couple more reasons Caniacs should have been sporting smiles today.
- The Canes have an opportunity to share a seat with Buffalo for the final play-off spot tonight.
Hurricanes welcome the Toronto Maple Leafs to the RBC Center at 7:00pm. Like the Devils and Thrashers, the Leafs boast 70 points. Carolina currently has 74 points in 9th seed of the Eastern Conference play offs. It is another imperative contest for the team as they trail 8th seed Buffalo by a mere two points.
The Toronto men share an embarrassing problem with the Carolina boys. No, I am not about to blow the cover on a Viagra scandal. They are both…power play-less.
The Leafs have gone 1-for-32 on extra man opportunities in the past eight games. We won’t talk about the Canes power play stats. We have all heard them enough. Plus, ignoring the pink elephant seemed to work yesterday, so in the true spirit of superstitious hockey we will not discuss it again today.
I would write more, but I fear for my nerves and the vomit that may soon decorate my keyboard.
LET’S GO CANES!
