History is made after all
Carolina scored 7 and overcame a 4 goal deficit to win for the first time since 1989. They did it for the first time as the Carolina Hurricanes. They etched their names into the history books and pushed themselves to the limit. They were scoring almost at will by the time they were up 6-4. It cannot be overstated how impressive this win was.
When was the last time you remember seeing a Canes goalie come into a game they were getting blown out in and turn the result around? I’m thinking and off the top of my head, I cannot think of one in the Tom Dundon era of the team. It really turned around when the netminders traded places.
When was the last time you saw a netminder who started the game as the backup record an assist on the game-tying goal? He’s now got 4 or 5 on the season, and he’s scoring at an alarming rate considering that the netminder cannot cross the red line without incurring a delay of game penalty.
This game was so historic. There was no way the Canes should have won this game, but the managed to hold on and get the result they wanted when they were down and out When the team next tales to the ice on the back of this game against Calgary at PNC Arena, it’s going to be a loud experience. A historical team returns home.
