    Angry GDT: Florida @ Carolina 7PM EST

    For those that care there is a hockey game tonight.
    The hurricanes have a streak going into tonights game (losing but still)
    Their Offense can't score nor can their Defense.

    They find themselves LAST in the Metro and 14th in the East.
    Florida is 15 BTW. and After tonight I predict we'll swap places (yay?)
    This season has really come unglued of late and looks to need a Columbus from last year style winning streak. Sadly with the team and players as they are (In a malaise) I can't see that happening

    For those that go Enjoy the atmosphere and food / drink (Heavily into the latter:P) For those watching at home Hope you have something to keep you awake. (like a :P)


    Hoping for a win but expecting none of that tonight.

    Oh yeah game is 7 Nov 2017

    Are the Canes poor starts of late a reflection on the leaders or coach? Has Peters lost the room or is there a problem in the room?

    If the Canes come out flat again tonight, I think RF has to fire Peters and get someone else in here that can bring this team together. Where are Kevin11 and Aulfie right now?

    I can't see Karmanos paying 2 people to coach this team so I expect no firing no matter what refuse is left on the ice.

    Lines and pairings at the morning skate

    Aho/Staal/Teravainen
    Skinner/Ryan/Lindholm
    McGinn/Rask/Williams
    Nordstrom/Kruger/Jooris

    Slavin/Faulk
    Fleury/TVR
    Hanifin/McKeown

    Darling in goal

    Both Pesce and Stempniak skated in regular jerseys so we might see Pesce back in the lineup on Friday. Peters said that Stempniak is still a ways away.

    Obviously this is a big game for the Canes.

    How about we take control of a home game right from the beginning, get 3 goals in the first period and keep pouring it on for a change? Its growing very very tiresome watching this team having to try to come back every home game. We haven't scored the first goal in ANY of our 5 home games so far. That is completely unacceptable.

    As for those line...meh. Nothing is going to look good if Ryan is in the top 9 really. I do like that they are playing McKeown again. I thought it was ridiculous that he only played 9:05 in that Arizona game. As if he was the reason we couldn't score any goals.

    Not sure I understand the reasoning behind Williams on the checking line, but whatever. Just come out with some passion for a change.

    Given the holes in our lineup at center the lines are going to look ugly. We can blame Ryan but Rask not getting it done really makes a problem at that position a disaster.

    Rask needs to step up. Not just him but if he doesn't there is no fix in sight. he needs to at least be a good option at 3c.

    If I were coach:

    Aho\Rask\Williams
    Skinner\Staal\Lindholm
    McGinn\Kruger\Terravainen
    Nordstrom\Ryan\Jooris

    OR

    Skinner\Rask\Aho
    Terravainen\Staal\Williams
    McGinn\Kruger\Lindholm
    Nordstrom\Ryan\Jooris

    More importantly is matching whatever lines properly against those of Florida

    Florida is DFL in the league in goals against per game, averaging 4.23 GA/game. Of course, Arizona is 2nd worst at 4.06 and you see how well that worked out. Panthers are 29th on the PK at 70.6%, they're slightly better on the road at 72.2%

    As has been said repeatedly, our biggest problem is no true #1 Center. And no one has stepped up to be a #2 Center either. From all appearances Rask is too much of a light weight to be an effective center. Why not see what Lindholm can bring to that position and put Rask in the press box for a couple games?

    There might be a handful left that care, the rest just laugh at fools like Karmanos that ruined a great thing. When do the moving trucks arrive in the dead of the night?

    Oh they shoot it alright...greatest NHL club to shoot it everywhere but in the back of the net. How many years of the same garbage when it comes to not having a clue when it comes to finishing golden scoring opportunities. Itís just maddening to watch and it NEVER gets better.

    end of 2. 38 shots, 5pps and 1 goal.
    Against Phoenix and Colorado was pretty much the same. Colorado was what 60 shots? Phoenix was over 30.
    120 shots on net and zilch to show. Shades of Christmas’s past.
    Either they are running into the hottest goalies in the world or
    Taking bad angle shots
    Not getting the shot off quick enough and giving the goalie time to setup
    No one in front to tip or rebound.
    NAh, with Peters as a coach it must be the hottest goalies in the world.

    McKeown looked pretty solid.

    Felt like we were going to lose this one the whole way, until we scored a - gasp - 2nd goal in the 3rd. It just had that wash, rinse, repeat feel that we've come to know all too well. Nice to see a home win again, regardless.
