On Friday, the Hurricanes announced that both Erik Cole and Chad LaRose would be placed on the injured reserve list. Jiří Tlustý and Pat Dwyer were called up from Albany to fill the forward lines. Cole has an “upper body injury” and will be out for two to three weeks. Sharpie has a “lower body injury” and will be out for three to four weeks.
It didn’t take long for the Czech to make his mark. Just 2:01 into the game, on his first shift as a Hurricane, Tlustý gave the visitors a 1-0 lead. Carolina built a 2-0 lead in the first period, watched it evaporate in the second, then traded goals in the third. Regulation ended in a 3-3 deadlock and Mike Green gave the Caps the win at 1:16 of the extra frame.
For the second game in a row, Carolina lost, but played well. There’s no column in the standings for “well played loss”, but there is one for “overtime loss”, so Carolina gets a much needed standings point.
