Canes streak continues

On Friday night, the Hurricanes dropped their 14th consecutive game, even if they managed to force overtime.  Since October 9, they have gone 0-10-4.  However, the news isn’t all bad. 

On Wednesday, the Canes overcame a two goal deficit only to lose 5-2.  On Friday, they overcame a horrible first period in which they fell behind 3-0.  Tim Gleason took a really dumb double minor early in the game which ended up spotting the Islanders two goals, but it was his goal late in the third that forced overtime.  The Canes were 14 seconds away from going to shootout when defenseman Bryan Rodney, recently called up from Albany, committed a bad turnover deep in the Canes zone.  This led directly to the winning goal and although the Canes looked like they would end the horrible streak, they added one more tick mark to the locker room wall. 

The good news is that some of the forwards are starting to play well.  With five (3/2) points in his last seven games, Brandon Sutter has looked like a Sutter, and Tuomo Ruutu is starting to assert himself.  And for only the second time in this dry spell, the Canes scored more than two goals.  That’s a start.
