5. They didn’t give up
Through all the injuries. Through all the mistakes on the ice. The Hurricanes never gave up and they kept fighting. This was a team determined to win and prove to the world, and maybe even themselves, that the success of the 2018-2019 season was not just a flash in the pan.
This team, though sometimes it didn’t seem like it to us as fans, learned from their mistakes. And boy were they feisty on the ice. Multiple guys showing grit like they hadn’t in the past. Aho was an especially spicy fishy this season.
And though the season is currently on pause. The Hurricanes find themselves in a playoff spot for the second season in a row. They didn’t give up, and we won’t give up on them. Ever.
