The Carolina Hurricanes Are Officially Good Enough To Get Mad About

The Carolina Hurricanes Are Officially Good Enough To Get Mad About

The Carolina Hurricanes, who have not been good in a very long time, are actually pretty cool to watch this year, even if they haven’t quite crossed back into the realm of “good” yet. Of the teams currently outside the playoff picture (the Canes are 10th in the East right now), Carolina is undeniably one of the most...

Justin Williams Sacrificed His Face To Score The Hurricanes' Opening Goal Against The Panthers

Justin Williams Sacrificed His Face To Score The Hurricanes' Opening Goal Against The Panthers
Your browser does not support HTML5 video tag.Click here to view original GIF

The question of whether an intact face is more valuable to a hockey player than a goal in the regular season has plagued sports philosophers for generations, and now it’ll be a question that Hurricanes elder Justin Williams will be asking himself often, at least in the near future.

With just over five minutes passing...

Carolina Hurricanes Continue To Dance On Hartford's Broken Corpse

Carolina Hurricanes Continue To Dance On Hartford's Broken Corpse

Hartford, one of America’s shittiest cities, received more bad news today. The logo, music, and iconography of the Hartford Whalers—the scrappy lovable hockey team that Peter Karmanos uprooted in 1997 and moved to Raleigh, N.C.—have been officially appropriated by their successors, the Hurricanes.

The ’Canes, who first kicked the dirt in Connecticut’s face when they won the franchise’s only...

Alex Ovechkin Just Dropped Andrei Svechnikov

Alex Ovechkin Just Dropped Andrei Svechnikov

The Carolina Hurricanes scored the first blow of their Game 3 matchup with the Capitals, getting a goal from Warren Foegele to go up 1-0. But Alex Ovechkin responded with a literal counterpunch—a whole bunch of them, in fact—to knock down Andrei Svechnikov.

Svechnikov was out of his league in this bout, and Ovechkin pummeled him with a barrage of quick rights, doing such damage that analyst...

Don Cherry Whines Like An Old Pissbaby About The Carolina Hurricanes' Postgame Celebrations

Don Cherry Whines Like An Old Pissbaby About The Carolina Hurricanes' Postgame Celebrations

Well, it was bound to happen eventually. The secret society of old, decrepit members of hockey media recently had a meeting and decided that Don Cherry would be the latest ancient asswipe to drone on about the Carolina Hurricanes and the team’s postgame celebrations. For those unaware, one of the most easily-forgotten teams in the NHL decided this season to start celebrating their home wins ...

The Penalty-Box Breakaway Is The Coolest Goal In Hockey

The Penalty-Box Breakaway Is The Coolest Goal In Hockey

This relatively rare type of goal, like the one Justin Faulk scored on Wednesday night , is its own subgenre of breakway goals. But the one that specifically still sticks out in my mind is P.K. Subban getting out of the penalty box behind the Boston defense, deking out Tuukka Rask, and scoring on a breakaway. In a pivotal Game 3 in the second round of the playoffs back in 2014, the most...

The Hurricanes Are So Good At This

The Hurricanes Are So Good At This

If the season ended today, the Carolina Hurricanes would be in the playoffs—and thank goodness, because this young-but-rising Canes team is easily hockey’s most fun right now. Not just because they’re good (they are) and not just because they’ve rekindled excitement in a town that hasn’t seen the postseason in a decade and forged a genuine connection with their fans (they have). It’s all of...

The Hurricanes Finally Didn't Stink, But Tuukka Rask Made Sure That Didn't Matter

The Hurricanes Finally Didn't Stink, But Tuukka Rask Made Sure That Didn't Matter

Sometimes, it just isn’t your series. Sometimes, you just run into a buzzsaw—or perhaps a brick wall. The Carolina Hurricanes, now down 3-0 to the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference final, may not particularly care which of those two cases is more applicable here, but it’s really a Venn diagram, and in the center is Tuukka Rask.

The Canes played two of their worst games of the season to...

Good Lord, The Caps Don't Like Making Things Easy

Good Lord, The Caps Don't Like Making Things Easy

Just because the championship monkey is off the backs of the Washington Capitals doesn’t mean the team has forgotten where it came from. In Game 1 of the series with the upstart Carolina Hurricanes, the Caps showed flashes of the team’s former self best known for handing momentum right back to postseason opponents like the world’s stupidest charity foundation.

They started as they often do in...

Don Cherry Is Not Going To Let His Blood Feud With The Hurricanes Die That Easily

Don Cherry Is Not Going To Let His Blood Feud With The Hurricanes Die That Easily

Back in February, Don Cherry took a brave stand against the encroaching forces of fun and entertainment that were descending upon the world of hockey led by the Carolina Hurricanes. He famously called the Hurricanes a “bunch of jerks ” for the elaborate choreographed celebrations they’d perform after home wins, and warned them not to do that in the playoffs.

Since then, the team has turned...

The Hurricanes Are Still Here, And We're All Better For It

The Hurricanes Are Still Here, And We're All Better For It

The Carolina Hurricanes pulled off the last in a string of crazy first-round playoff series upsets on Wednesday night, disrespecting the far more experienced Capitals by wearing them down over two overtimes for a 4-3 win. It was going to be extremely tough for the Canes and the Caps to match the hijinks of the Knights-Sharks battle that went down less than 24 hours prior, but after slipping...

Montreal Offer-Sheeted Sebastian Aho, But Don Waddell Is Getting Off Those Jokes

Montreal Offer-Sheeted Sebastian Aho, But Don Waddell Is Getting Off Those Jokes

An unexpected delight on the opening of NHL free agency: The Montreal Canadiens have signed Carolina Hurricanes restricted free agent forward Sebastian Aho to an offer sheet. It will be very interesting to see how this one goes down—while it feels unlikely that the Hurricanes won’t match, at the very least there should be some hard feelings all around. And if that isn’t the true spirit of...

Boston Radio Host Hangs Up On Carolina Hurricanes Reporter Because Of His Southern Accent

Boston Radio Host Hangs Up On Carolina Hurricanes Reporter Because Of His Southern Accent

To preview the upcoming Carolina Hurricanes–Boston Bruins playoff series, Boston sports radio show Toucher & Rich had Chip Alexander, Canes beat writer for the Raleigh News and Observer, call in Wednesday to talk hockey. It wasn’t long before one of the hosts hung up on him, for a very petty reason.

The relevant part starts at about the 20-minute mark. Just as Alexander’s talking about Nino...

Hurricanes' Justin Faulk Waltzes Out Of Penalty Box And Directly Into All Kinds Of Glory

Hurricanes defenseman Justin Faulk was hit with a two-minute hooking penalty at the 9:51 mark of the second period of Wednesday’s Game 3 of the Islanders-Hurricanes series, with the score tied a one goal apiece. The Canes successfully killed the ensuing Islanders power play, which functionally ended with Curtis McElhinney saving a Ryan Pulock slapshot. The puck clattered around along the...

The Islanders' Best Hope Against The Hurricanes Is A War Of Attrition

The Islanders' Best Hope Against The Hurricanes Is A War Of Attrition

A team playing its ninth game in 18 days on Sunday afternoon, the Hurricanes, were struck by disaster in the very first minute of Game 2 against the Islanders. Carolina defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk got checked hard against the boards by New York’s Cal Clutterbuck, knocking him out for the whole game and, according to coach Rod Brind’Amour, a long while after that.

The Hurricanes played ...

Justin "Mr. Game 7" Williams Does It Again, Helps The Hurricanes Knock Out The Capitals

Justin "Mr. Game 7" Williams Does It Again, Helps The Hurricanes Knock Out The Capitals

The Carolina Hurricanes refused to play their part in their opening-round series against the defending champion Washington Capitals. Arriving in the playoffs for the first time since 2009, the Hurricanes were not the inexperienced youngsters who got taught a lesson about the difficulties of the postseason by the grizzled veteran squad. Instead, they fought back from 2-0 and 3-1 deficits in...

Alex Ovechkin Had One Hell Of A Wild Night

Alex Ovechkin Had One Hell Of A Wild Night

In retrospect we couldn’t have asked for a better first-round matchup. The Capitals are the more talented team, but they’re also more banged-up and tired. The Hurricanes are younger and hungrier (whatever that means), but also less experienced—which could be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on how they channel that nervous energy. The Caps, on the other hand, have been here, many times,...

With just over five minutes left in the third period, Carolina’s Warren Foegele gave a shove to TJ Oshie right on the numbers and sent the Washington player into the boards while he was chasing after the puck. Oshie remained down on the ice for an extended period of time in pain, but was able to leave under his own...

The Hurricanes Are Getting Even Better At This

The Hurricanes Are Getting Even Better At This

When we last checked in with the Carolina Hurricanes , just a few days ago, they had pulled off maybe their best ever home victory celebration yet—an homage to Duck Hunt, with sticks for guns and gloves for ducks. But on Saturday night, the ’Canes turned to another sport for inspiration.

After beating the Wild 5-1 to earn a five-point cushion in the playoff picture, some arena employees...

Recent Boston Bruins pickup Marcus Johansson had to leave Tuesday night’s eventual 4-3 win against the Carolina Whalers with an upper body injury, after Micheal Ferland crunched him with a clean but brutal body check in the game’s opening minutes. Johansson would stay down on the ice for a brief time, and then exited...
