Entries with the tag: Carolina Hurricanes
Carolina returned from a successful road trip, took three days off, then looked lost on their first game back. Tomas Vokoun and the Florida Panthers blanked the Hurricanes 5-0 in a critical “four point game” between the division foes. The Hurricanes are stuck on 59 points and are now three points out of eighth place.
Carolina, who looked sluggish out of the gate, fell behind 2-0 in the first and never recovered. On the other end, Tomas Vokoun was absolutely sensational, stopping all 42 shots that he saw. There’s not much anybody can do other than tip their hat to Vokoun for a job very well done.
Since Carolina suffered their first shutout loss of the season, the only remaining team who has not been shut out is the Detroit Red Wings.
