Well, you are welcome. And here is the most recent update:
RALEIGH - The Carolina Hurricanes put a strong line on the ice Sunday at the RBC Center -- Rod Brind'Amour, Ray Whitney and Tuomo Ruutu.
Unfortunately for the Canes, that was four hours before the exhibition game against the Philadelphia Flyers.
Turns out, the Hurricanes didn't need the injured threesome. Carolina topped the Flyers 1-0 for their first exhibition win on Sergei Samsonov's first-period goal and strong play by goaltender Michael Leighton.
For Brind'Amour, sitting out games has been frustrating, irritating. He often seems like a Kentucky thoroughbred behind a starting gate, filled with anxious intensity.
Brind'Amour spent month after month rebuilding his left knee after the severe injury last season that required reconstructive surgery. Working out at the Athletic Performance Center in North Raleigh. Leading the informal workouts at the RecZone.
Then, days before training camp began, he needed more surgery to repair a cartilage tear.
