Andrew Hammond And A Late Comeback By The Colorado Avalanche Force A Game 6

from Tracey Myers of NHL.com,

 Andrew Hammond waited for his opportunity.

The Colorado Avalanche goalie had a taste of the Stanley Cup Playoffs with the Ottawa Senators in 2015, and wanted to have another.

"You want to play meaningful hockey," Hammond said. "When the games mean more, I try to take my game to another level. Obviously, I was able to do that tonight."

Thanks to Hammond, the Avalanche continue to play meaningful hockey.

Hammond made an NHL career high 44 saves, and Sven Andrighetto scored the game-winning goal with 1:28 remaining in third period in a 2-1 victory against the Nashville Predators in Game 5 of the Western Conference First Round at Bridgestone Arena on Friday.

The Predators lead the best-of-7 series 3-2, with Game 6 at Pepsi Center on Sunday...

Goodbye Bill Peters

from Luke DeCock of the News & Observer,

Ah, the great moments of the Bill Peters era. There was … or … uh … yeah.

Really, it comes down to yapping at Eddie Lack from down the hallway last year – “make a (bleeping) save” – or his epic rant in February about how sending the same team out again would be “unacceptable” at which point the Carolina Hurricanes proceeded to send the same team out again for the next game. Never anything on the ice.

Peters spent four years with the Carolina Hurricanes, made some bad commercials for water-purification systems, never made the playoffs and exits with essentially the same record as his predecessor, Kirk Muller. Peters was a terrific tactician who never connected with his players. This season, they had clearly tuned him out by December. He should have been fired then.

Then again, if Scott Darling isn't grossly negligent in net, the Hurricanes are in the playoffs right now (or at least, would have been earlier this week) and Peters is still in charge.
