Carolina wins 3-2 after an incredible performance from their third-choice netminder in this one. Alex Lyon stood on his head in this one and really kept the Canes in a game there were being outclassed in at times. Especially when the team was short-handed, that seemed to be when Lyon really stood on his brain. He’s the reason Carolina didn’t get blown out
Carolina’s big boys woke up in this game too and made a big difference as the boys pushed through a quality opponent in the form of the St Louis Blues in order to secure two points in the standings. This was a game that had stacked everything against the Carolina Hurricanes, and the teams’ stars put in big performances to drag them through.
Carolina can take a lot of confidence from this game as they now prepare to travel out west for a long time in a hockey schedule. It’s going to be two weeks before we see the Hurricanes in action at PNC Arena when they welcome Washington. For now, it’s a season-defining road trip out west that awaits the Metropolitan Division leaders.
Carolina spoils the return of their former pupil as they give a clinical display on how to score from the backend. You couldn’t ask for anything more from this game if you are a fan of the Carolina Hurricanes. They got the win, they got the two points, played well, and woke up their sleeping superstars in the process as the two took over. You couldn’t have drawn it up better.
