There's no place like home (Devils)

Canes go for their 6th straight win at home, not too long after putting up a lengthy losing streak there. Brodeur's record is behind them and it's the perfect opportunity for a let down by New Jersey.

Since Carolina was idle for 3 days, most teams made up 1-2 of their games in hand. In fact, Carolina now has a game in hand on Pittsburgh. What's even more amazing is that they are still currently in the playoffs after the time off.

Game time is 7PM as usual.

Word around the block is that Shady 80 will be in net. I guess with all the emotions surrounding the last couple days Marty gets a day off.

So guess we should be getting the Vezina out and giving it a good shine.

Really there's only one thing to say:

To Hell with the Devils

couldn't tell you on that last forward slot. If Walker's healthy he's in, otherwise it's either Bayda or Mike Ryan.

Pitkanen - Babchuk
Gleason - Corvo
Seidenberg - Wallin

Luke talks about Marty's rest and remineces a bit: http://blogs.newsobserver.com/decock...erves-the-rest

Carolina. I think it's just kind of weird; maybe the moon's lined up
differently."


His Game 1 implosion during the 2006 Eastern Conference semifinals was a legendary lapse of poise for one of the game’s most composed goalies:

With a backhand swipe of his glove directed at Justin Williams’ head, followed by a shove to his chin, Martin Brodeur awarded the game to the Carolina Hurricanes just as surely as if he’d left his net unguarded.

When one of the coolest goalies in NHL history blew his top, everything that happened after that was a formality. The Canes weren’t just in his kitchen. They cooked a five-course meal for 20, then hung around for cocktails.

Brodeur’s outburst came when Williams toppled over him as Cory Stillman scored Carolina’s fourth goal in a 6-0 win over the New Jersey Devils on Saturday, one of many incursions of Brodeur’s crease, his 34th birthday present from the Hurricanes.

“That’s part of their job,” Brodeur said. “They have to get to me. Now, we have to get to Cam Ward.”

Even Devil fans are expecting a loss in this one.

Under the circumstances, anything less than two points is unacceptable if the Canes are really a playoff calibre team.

Tough decision:

Devils feed in pretty decent detail, or Canes feed in crap detail?

The Canes look bigger than the Devils so far.
