After overcoming the first multi-goal deficit of the season, the Carolina Hurricanes win 4-3 and improve to 9-0-0 on the season. In another performance that was unmoving, Carolina’s talent shone through and bailed them out of what had been a dismal performance after two periods. However, Carolina will now face the Florida Panthers with a chance to tie the all-time record of consecutive wins to start a season.
After giving up the first goal, the Canes would not give up the fight. With the Carolina Hurricanes falling behind 3-1, there was a lot of resilience from the team, sparked from a young man we will talk about shortly. That young man (I’m sure you all know who I’m referring to) has become a must-watch player for this team going forward.
Carolina’s 4th line really did inspire their comeback in this game on the back of some much valued 4th line scoring. With their 4th line firing, the Carolina Hurricanes managed to fight back into this game as eventually, their talents woke up offensively. A team effort to overcome the Chicago Blackhawks in the third period truly came through the tough grind of the first 40.
This game will never be viewed as a classic, it’s not a display of the high-flying Carolina Hurricanes offense that dominates from puck drop to the final whistle that we’ve become so accustomed to. In fact, by the standards of the team in recent years, this performance could be classed as a major disappointment. But that doesn’t matter. Carolina is unbeaten moving forward.
Carolina remains the NHL’s only unbeaten team so far. Now, the tasks become a lot more difficult in the future.
