|A huge momentum boost came for Carolina Hurricanes goalie Scott Darling, with a standout win over the top team in the Metro.
Very rarely have the Carolina Hurricanes seen the very best of newly acquired goaltender Scott Darling this season. In his first season with the Canes, it would be nice to see Darling help out the situation in terms of goalie depth. However, the opposite happened as Darling sank and fellow Carolina goalie Cam Ward swam.
Ward actually won out the starting [url=http://www.authenticcowboysprosales.com/jed-collins-c-1_56.html]Jed Collins Womens Jersey job for most of the season, but head coach Bill Peters gave Darling some more starts of late. Since Jae Crowder Womens Jersey the Canes are firmly out of the playoff race, http://www.nuotex.com/jakob-poeltl-jersey-c-1_16.html and nearly mathematically eliminated, building Darling’s confidence is a top priority right now. He was able to do just that with a solid March 30 road performance.
Carolina notched their second win of the season over Metropolitan Division [url=http://www.authenticcowboysprostores.com/demarco-murray-c-1_32.html]Authentic DeMarco Murray Jersey rival Washington Capitals, to kick http://www.gkjouer.com/kevin-pierrelouis-jersey-c-1_34.html off the weekend slate. Darling got Greg Olsen Youth Jersey the start, as Ward is likely to start in a home http://www.metaindice.com/tom-johnson-jersey-c-1_28.html matchup against the New York Rangers on March 31. However, Darling stopped 20 of 21 shots http://www.wypik.com/domantas-sabonis-jersey-c-1_3.html against the Caps, leading to one of his best results of the season. Really only victories for Darling over the Columbus Blue Jackets and Calgary Flames this season saw him play just as good, if not better.
Darling also fared well in his previous start to the one against the Caps, when he stopped more than 40 shots on goal in a road loss to the New Jersey Devils. There’s been few two game stretches where Darling played well through both. Seeing him do that recently is a great sign for the fortunes for him next season.
