On Wednesday, the Hurricanes stretched their losing streak to seven games and their winless streak to an astounding 13 games. After falling behind 2-0 to the Kings, they tied the game in the third period, but everything fell apart, and they ended up losing 5-2. Tuomo Ruutu had the only two goals for the Canes.
At times, Manny Legace looked good. At times, he looked worse than Johnny Crackers. He, for absolutely no reason, came so far out of his net on a couple of occasions that I actually thought he was going on a beer run. Again, though, it wasn’t bad goaltending that lost the game. The defense left Legace out to dry on two power play goals. In the offensive zone, not much good happened. Right now, as fragile as this team is, the only way they’re going to win any games is when the final score is 2-1. The defense isn’t playing well enough to make that happen. And the forwards certainly aren’t playing well enough to get into a track meet with anybody.
