Terrible Twos

In each of its last four games, Carolina has allowed an opposing player to pot two goals.  This is obviously a trend that needs to come to an end immediately.

On Saturday, Ethan Moreau scored two when the Oilers defeated the Canes 3-1.
On Sunday, Mikhail Grabovski scored two, but the Hurricanes beat the Leafs 6-4.
On Tuesday, Grabovski duplicated his two goal performance, but Carolina held on for a 5-4 win over Toronto.
On Thursday, Alexander Semin had two markers to lead the Caps to a 3-2 win over Carolina.

The Canes are at home tonight against Ottawa, and they will have Dany Heatley and Jason Spezza to deal with. 

Both the Canes and the Sens are playing the second of back-to-back games.  The starting goalies should be Michael Leighton for Carolina and Martin Gerber for Ottawa.
