Hurricanes get 6-5 shootout win over Flyers to end the season

That the Carolina Hurricanes won Sunday in their last game of the season wasn't that meaningful. The Hurricanes aren't going to the playoffs and nothing can ease that disappointment. Jeff Skinner and Eric Staal each scored a pair of goals for the Hurricanes, and Staal's shootout goal beat the Philadelphia Flyers 6-5 at the Wells Fargo Center. Skinner's power-play...

Hurricanes end home slate with loss

RALEIGH, N.C. -- The loneliest vuvuzela this side of 2010 was still there in PNC Arena on Thursday night, bleating out a few hopeful notes as the final home game of the season got going. Three sharp blasts on it by its owner prefaced the "€œLet'€™s Go '€˜Canes!" chant. Those started out energetically enough, and why not? A minute and two seconds into the...

Out of playoffs again, Canes seek answers

A day after having their final playoff chances end, the Carolina Hurricanes were back at work at PNC Arena on Wednesday. They also were trying to come up with some answers. The 4-1 road loss to the New York Rangers on Tuesday mathematically eliminated the Hurricanes (34-34-11), who face the Washington Capitals on Thursday in their final home appearance. For the fifth straight season...

Hurricanes fall to Blue Jackets in OT

RALEIGH, N.C. -- It took over 36 minutes for either the Hurricanes or the Blue Jackets to score a goal. And it took Columbus less than three minutes combined to answer both of Carolina's. When the Hurricanes were the first team to scratch late in the second, it seemed like they had all the momentum. But they've seen that movie before this season, and this time, they fell...

Eric Staal Receives A Middle Finger Salute From Female Fan In Buffalo

The NHL returned to action on Tuesday night following the Olympic hiatus with the Carolina Hurricanes visiting the Buffalo Sabres to make up for a snowed out game earlier in this season. Not the ideal matchup to ring in the second half of the season but, hey, I guess we’ll take it. ‘Canes captain Eric Staal managed to net a game-tying goal late in the second period of the matchup...

Eric Staal on Cheerios Olympic box despite not making Team Canada

Somebody should go ahead and tell the fine folk over at General Mills that one of their special edition Olympics boxes of Cheerios probably should have never hit the shelves. That box is one that prominently features Canadian-born hockey player Eric Staal on the back, despite the fact that he didn’t make Team Canada’s ice hockey roster for the upcoming Sochi games. Staal, who...

Staal finding old form in win over Sharks

RALEIGH, N.C. --- Eric Staal is back. Actually, the Carolina Hurricanes' star never went anywhere, but the level of play that had become his norm took a three-month hiatus to begin this season. But finally, Staal is playing like the All-Star he has been for most of his eight-year NHL career. That level continued Friday night in the Hurricanes' 3-2 victory over the San...
