On Saturday, the Flyers handed the Hurricanes their third straight loss and their sixth in the last seven games. Also, they scored their eleventh shorthanded goal of the season, and Jeff Carter scored his league leading 19th goal to win it in overtime.
Sergei Samsonov scored his third marker of the season early in the third period on a power play. Although the Canes are still struggling with the power play, they have managed to score PP goals in two straight games. It’s a small step, I know.
To add to Carolina’s injury woes, defenseman Nic Wallin left the game in the third period with what appeared to be a left ankle injury. No call-up has been made for today’s game, but it doesn’t seem likely that he’ll play. Add Wallin to the ever-growing list of injured defensemen. Frantisek Kaberle. Tim Gleason. Dennis Seidenberg. And of course goalie Cam Ward and winger Scott Walker are still out. So far, the Hurricanes have 104 man-games lost to injury.
