This is a game that aged me severely. With an opposing goaltender standing on his head, it seemed like this was a game destined to join the analogs of Carolina Hurricanes hockey. However, unlike the teams of old, this team found a way to come back and get both points in the extra frame.
Even after having a goal in overtime disallowed for offside, the Hurricanes find a way to squeeze a win out in the Bay. Carolina’s impressive performances in this game saw them take home a 2-1 win from the Big Guava. Not the most impressive of score lines but a fantastic bounce-back performance by the team to improve to 10-1 on the season and move one point behind the league-leading Florida Panthers with 3 games in hand.
This game was everything the Carolina Hurricanes needed it to be in order to secure the two points and move up in the standings. It was a solid defensive performance, a fantastic netminding duel, and a dominant performance from the forward core to get back to winning ways. Not only does Carolina win, but they do it in a commanding fashion despite needing the extra frame to settle the score.
Now, we can go back to having fun and talking about another win from the Carolina Hurricanes, as they continue their dominant start to the season. Being 10-1 through 11 games, Carolina now sits as the most in-form team in the NHL. This is everything Canes fans could have hoped for to this point of the season.
