Despite my girlfriend and I strangely wearing Canes jerseys, the people around us were all kind.

I thought Fisher had a great game all night, as did Roman Josi. I was telling my girlfriend all about Nashville's special players and sure enough all of them made good and got on the scoreboard. As a Canes fan, I would do near anything to get Kevin Klein on my team since he brings a steady, positional presence on the blueline and our blueline is hurting bad. Although Rinne wasn't at his best (he's usually impossible to score on when we play him), he had several solid glove saves and shut out the Stars for the 1st and 3rd periods.

So thank you all for your hospitality! Going to a downtown arena was a lot of fun. Furthermore, it's awesome seeing hockey thrive in another southern state. I hope you guys make the playoffs and do some damage.
Thanks so much for the kind words and making the trip. I saw you during pre-skate, and was reminded of a wonderful sign from some Caniacs in the Fangtastic 2011 playoff run. It alluded to "Southern Hockey Towns" sticking together, and right there I made it a point to move Carolina up as a favorite Eastern Conference team. Best of luck to you as well- let's meet up for a best of seven sometime late this May and June!!
