The Carolina Hurricanes dropped game four in the worst way.
The Carolina Hurricanes allow four goals in the third period in another loss to the Boston Bruins. Here are the takeaways from an awful game.
Caniacs, if you are feeling down, don’t worry because I’m right there with you. The first two periods looked bright for the Carolina Hurricanes after goals from Jordan Martinook and Justin Williams. However, after James Reimer missed the puck on a charge out of the crease, the momentum turned in favor of the Boston Bruins.
Unfortunately, nothing went right for the Hurricanes after this moment. After such a positive effort in the first two periods, the Hurricanes reverted back to their game three ways in the third period after this mistake. Instead of rallying behind Reimer, who had an excellent performance in the first two periods, they let in four goals in a matter of minutes with a lifeless display.
It’s tough to see, but there are a few positives from tonight’s performance. Justin Williams brought the team to life with an excellent shot at the point. I would expect nothing less from the veteran leader, and there’s no better way to lead than by example. Alternate Captain Jordan Martinook then ripped an excellent shot that Halak was not prepared for which put the Canes up 2-0.
That’s where the positives end, and the worst period in recent history begins. Let’s take a look at three takeaways from tonight’s game, and find a way to prepare for game five.
