'Canes Go For Three

Well the Hurricanes have either turned some kind of corner in the confidence dept. at least, or maybe it's just a blip in an otherwise dismal season, but i'm hoping it's the former...after winning a crazy game on Thursday in which they came back from 3-0 in the first to the Leafs, to finallly tie the game at 4-all, then gave up that tie with .29 secs left, pulled Legace and tied it again with TWO seconds left on a Cole score....then Jussi and Ruutu (who also had 4 assists in the game) locked it up by scoring on the first two shots of the shootout...wild...the 'Canes more decisively beat Tampa Bay Saturday, and head to Dallas tonight to try to keep the momentum going in a quest for respectability before the end of the year... Staal is skating but not back tonight, Ward is still indefinite, but certain guys like Sutter and Cullen and the aforementioned Finns are stepping up to bring some cohesion to a depleted lineup and the last few have been fun to watch (mostly). Three wins in a row doesn't sound like much, but when you've recently lost double digits in a row, it sounds pretty awesome.
Go 'Canes!

Hopefully they have some confidence now. I'm sure losing 14 games in a row, doesn't help your psyche. Hopefully they can keep battling for some wins.

2-0 shutout v the Stars, so much for getting on a roll!

Oh well..There was hope. Maybe it was good I didn't see the game.
