Tampa Bay Lightning at Carolina Hurricanes | Nov 1 '11 | 7:00PM

'Canes coming off a stunning loss against the Flyers

On Saturday, the 'Canes faced an angry Flyers team that had suffered an embarrassing 9-8 loss against the Jets. Carolina had played the previous night in a convicing win against the Chicago Blackhawks, who got shutout 3-0 after an impressive effort by the Hurricanes.

The game between Carolina and Philadelphia was tied at 1 after two periods of play. However, in the 3rd period, the Flyers scored 4 goals and the 'Canes were beaten by a score of 5-1. This enraged some 'Canes fans, who were devastated that the team could not win two possible Stanley Cup contenders in a row, in back-to-back games.

The Hurricanes now face a division rival, the Tampa Bay Lightning, the team that not only beat the 'Canes in their season opener this year, but also pushed them out of the playoffs in the final game of last season.









Hurricanes lineup

Tloosty - Lazy Captain - 1st liner
Finns & Skins
Понікаровський - Saviour - Compete Level
EhStew13 - Brenter37 - ZachBoychuk

Gleason - Allen
Yanni - Action Hero
Kaberle - Harrison

Ward
Boucher





Lightning lineup

Connolly - Lecavalier - St. Louis
Malone - Stamkos - Purcell
Shannon - Moore - Downie
Ritola - Thompson - Hall

Hedman - Brewer
Bergeron - Kubina
Clark - Gilroy

Roloson
Garon




In the spotlight:


Paul Maurice
Head Coach Paul Maurice is steadily leading the team towards a familiar 9th place finish.

If Carolina wins, the players get the credit. If they lose, Paul Maurice is an awful coach and must be fired immediately.



Eric Staal
The 'Canes captain has started out the season poorly, and is already heavily criticized by infuriated fans, who have also begun questioning Staal's captaincy, and even suggested he should be traded.

Despite Staal's reputation as a slow starter, his lack of point production early on has apparently been a big surprise.


"They say I'm not playing well because I'm upset over what I did to my brother, but that's not true. I'm upset about the unwarranted criticism Chad gets at HFBoards. Leave Rosey alone."



Jeff Skinner
The Calder winner has not shown signs of a sophomore slump.

In fact, he has drawn a lot of attention with his masterful diving ability. It is rumored that scouts from the Canadian Olympic Committee have been watching Carolina's games lately.


Jeff Skinner has just performed one of his heroic dives.



Tim Gleason
Seems to have quit drinking and is back in good shape. Will it last, or will his bad (drinking) habits take over during the season?

Tripp Tracy says Gleason is built like a greyhound.



Tripp Tracy
Pay close attention to Tripp's creative use of the telestrator. The figures he draws may look like phalluses, but they are actually brilliant visual breakdowns of Carolina's plays.

Puck support count: 5




Brandon Sutter
Save us, Brandon.




"Praise be to Thee, oh Anton!"

Only two mentions of Chad in the OP.

You can do better.

So if they lose tonight and look bad in the process, does JR start making panic trades?

Lightning, what a terrible team name. Nobody associates Florida with Lightning, at least not like they do with Delaware or Alaska. They should be renamed the Tampa Bay Water.

Nope.

This is a game they are expected to struggle in. It'll take losses to Winnipeg, Florida and the Islanders to stir Rutherford from his winter nap.

I've always associated TB with this girl I used to know from there so they should obviously be renamed the Psycho Kinkyfreaks, and I mean that in a good way.

Come to think of it, I remember a few years ago the Buccaneers went to the Super Bowl. That made them pretty famous. They should rename their hockey team the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The only given about this game is Staal will find a way to go -5.

Jared Staal has 1 assist in 6 games for the Checks. He's obviously better than Eric. Call him up.

Is this the game Eric Staal passes Jiri Tlusty in points?

Is this the game Cam Ward doesn't play extremely well and thus we don't stand a chance of winning?

Is this the game Chad LaRose completes at least 25% of his passes?

I must have missed Brett Sutter getting sent down to Charlotte. That's a shame... other than one ridiculously bad play I thought he did pretty well.

The past 3 years, 6 out of the 8 teams that are in a playoff position by the end of November 1st make the playoffs that year. The past 2 years, 7 out of the 8 teams.

We're currently in 10th. We can jump to 7th with a win tonight, in terms of points, but both Tampa and Buffalo would have games in hand.

Yes, even with the slow start we are not even buried yet... cause Boston is playing so poorly..and the rest of the confrence only like 3 teams have broke out.

In the past however many years they've been doing 16 teams in the playoffs, 8 out of 8 teams that are in playoff position by the end of game 82 make the playoffs that year.

Not bad, but the first thing I think of is Josh Freeman, since he's probably the biggest athlete currently living there. So what if they renamed them the "Tampa Bay Kansas State Wildcats"?

But he will be a +1 in the subjective +/-.
