After a third straight win to start the 2021-22 NHL season, the Carolina Hurricanes are flying high right now. With six points from a possible six games, the Canes are one of the few remaining unbeaten teams in the league. Carolina now sits third in the Metropolitan division, capturing every possible point from their first three games.
With a little luck and a good call from the video coaching staff, the Carolina Hurricanes video coaching staff managed to get a questionable call to go their way when the Canadiens had a goal ruled out for incidental goaltender interference. A goal that would have given the Canadiens their first lead of the season was ruled out, and it allowed the Canes to kick on when the period ticked over.
Playing into the narrative of the return of a Montreal villain, Carolina would get the dagger goal from their newest addition. As soon as that goal scorer was announced, the boos started to rain down from above on the player and unfairly so, but we will get to him and more here as we talk about this game. Boy, it was fun to watch this team right now. They’re not flying, but they’re fun.
Let us dive into this then. A couple of Finnish sensations who dominated on the night, Carolina’s victory on Twitter as well as on the ice, and yet another big performance from the Carolina Hurricanes netminder see some of our best points. This was a fun game, I’m glad I watched it and I’m so grateful that you join me to talk about the three big takeaways from a 4-1 win in Montreal.
