The Highs and Lows of the Carolina Hurricanes

Carolina gave up an early lead Saturday and fell 2-1 in overtime to the Islanders just a day after the exhilarating shutout over the Washington Capitals. It was a fast and smart game by the Canes, but good wasn’t good enough. It has been a common theme throughout this roller coaster season. The highs and low can give you emotional whiplash. I’m a visual person, so allow me to demonstrate…

Points earned are represented along the left side and games are listed chronologically along the bottom.

I guess you can say Canes have been consistently inconsistent. However (yes, there is a but), results are improving! The point average in October was 1.0, then dipped to .60 in November. December saw a slight incline with .86 monthly point average, and…wait for it…January is at an all-time high with 1.10 monthly average points.

Being a Caniac may feel a bit bi-polar at times, but like paying a ticket into a Six Flags Amusement Park, we decided to get on this crazy ride. So buckle in, throw your hands in the air, fight the nausea, and ride this Storm Coaster with pride!

I leave you with a shining highlight from last night. Zac Dalpe’s sweet pass and Jeff Skinner’s skate to tape goal at 22 seconds in…

Let’s Go Canes!
