Hurricanes vs. Blue Jackets Recap
Things didn’t go as well as the Canes would have liked in the first preseason game, as the team dropped the contest 5-4.
Cam Ward played in his first game since March, but gave up five goals on 31 shots. Don’t look into the performance too much, Ward was playing behind a weak defense and it was his first game in nearly seven months.
What could be discerning is that the Canes led, 4-2, in the second period. It may only be preseason, but it’s never good to give up leads like that.
The Canes play the Buffalo Sabres tonight at 7 p.m. ET. A preview will be poster later today.
