Game Anaylisis: Klein ends the scoring drought in the second period with a booming howitzer from the point. Carolina rallies back when LaRose scores from his faceoff circle after a fake pass to one of the n00bies. It has been an epic goalie showdown between Ward and Rinne until Legwand sends Hornqvsit a beautiful one time pass between the legs of Corvo for the goal. Cam Ward immediately turns around glaring down a prone Gleason behind the net. With tensions rising, Skinner gets a powerplay goal waved off because his stick wasn't low enough on a deflection. While throwing a tantrum, Jordan Staal gets injured in the process. Canes lose 3-1.

Post game comments:

When asked about the goal being waved off: "I thought the replacements refs were supposed to be gone yesterday".


When asked about Jordan Staal's injury: "Why do the Staal's always have to be the center of attention, I was a RFA too ya know?"


When asked about wearing a Radulov jersey: "You make a last ditch effort when you got nothing else to bring."
