|Adding two more points from a home win over the Montreal Canadiens, the Carolina Hurricanes are offically back in a playoff spot.
After defeating the Montreal Canadiens for their third straight victory, the Carolina Hurricanes are now back in a playoff http://www.authenticsaintsshop.com/shop-by-players-mark-ingram-jersey-c-1_28.html spot in Joe Staley Youth Jersey the Eastern Conference. Tied with fellow Metropolitan Division team, the Philadelphia Flyers, Carolina now sits at 56 points on the season.
Cam Ward came up huge, for the second straight contest, to help the Canes notch the big victory. He’s also got the start in each of the three straight wins. Scott Darling should get the nod in the Feb. 2 matchup, at PNC Arena, against the Detroit Red Wings.
The Metro looks to be possibly tougher now than it was [url=http://www.authenticflyerssale.com/sean-couturier-jersey-c-1_26.html]Sean Couturier Youth Jersey last year. Carolina still has to get through the Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins, Columbus Blue Jackets, http://www.creaselect.com/jay-ratliff-c-1_41.html New Jersey Devils, and Washington Capitals. And, it’s not like the New York Rangers and New York Islanders are too far out of a playoff position. Even though the Atlantic http://www.sear-ch.com/lucas-nogueira-jersey-c-2_3.html Division is not as deep as the Metro does not mean that things get any easier for the Canes.
This is a feeling unlike much of what Carolina fans have felt in the past eight years. Canes fans have more hope for a playoff run than they’ve had in a long time. Ward is giving this team a goalie that they can rely upon on a nightly basis.
Carolina is also healthier than they’ve been all season. The return of players like star left winger Sebastian Aho and first line defeseman Brett Pesce to the lineup have brought this team together. Pesce notched his first goal of the season in Benoit Pouliot Youth Jersey the Feb. 1 victory over the Habs.
Moreover, Aho was the missing piece that the first forward line needs to lead the rest of the offense. And, here’s a few reasons why the Canes can feel special about this playoff position at this moment.
