This one was never close...Hurricanes stomp Panthers 7-2

New, comments

I'm going to keep this short and sweet because I cant see anybody wanting to read much about this disaster of a game, and I certainly don't feel like writing much about it.  All we can hope for is a major rebound tomorrow in Sunrise that hopefully most of us will be there for. 

When the game was still close enough to call ‘a game', the Panthers actually didn't play that badly. They made a few mistakes that unfortunately all turned into goals.  I'm still not seeing anything from our supposed ‘veteran defensemen' (Ballard, McCabe), although Brian Allen seems to be playing well. 

I'd say last night was a bit of a wake-up call for rookie Dmitry Kulikov.  His positioning was off several times and I can remember at least two times he coughed up the puck in our own end.  There will be a lot of guys looking for redemption on short notice tomorrow night. 

The first line generated several scoring chances and had their most consistent game of the young season.  I think a lot of that had to do with a having a healthy Stephen Weiss, who was so much better then he was against the Blackhawks.  Playing overseas with the flu will do that to a person. 

Feel free to vent in the comments section, there was a lot to complain about.  Get it all out of your system now because tomorrow is a new day.  A more positive pre-game coming up late morning/early afternoon.  Have a great night, all!
