Red and Black Hockey

On Friday, while most of North Carolina was getting pounded with a rare autumn snowstorm, the Hurricanes were getting pounded down in Florida. They lost 6-3 to the Panthers in the front end of a home-and-home that will resume tonight in Raleigh.
Carolina struck first, but then gave up six unanswered goals including two in a a 37 second span in the third period. This is the theme of this miserable season. Giving up goals in quick succession. Although it was too little and too late, Scott Walker and Eric Staal scored late markers to make the game look closer than it really was.
Carolina has been playing with half of their regular blueliners on the injury list. The “Rat pack” has been great at times, but pretty bad at times. The good news is that Tim Gleason is expected to return to the lineup tonight after missing the last two games with lingering problems from the Ovechkin puck to the face last Friday.
