    Born and raised in Chicago, Ill and growing up as a devout Blackhawks fan, I took an immediate interest in the Canes when they (Whalers at the time, of course) came south while I was living in North Carolina. Also, I am an East Carolina University graduate...go Pirates! I fell in love with NC hockey and shifted loyalties my fellow Chicagoans would not approve of!

    I am a hardcore Canes fan living in the greater Washington D.C. area. I attend every game I can when back in the Tarheel state, or even on the road. Whether it's reliving the "Shock at the Rock" moment on YouTube, or recalling them raising the Cup in 2006, or my man crush for Mike Commodore, I can't get enough Canes! Huge Erik Haula fan. Repping the Caniacs in Caps-land!

  1. Just got home and get to watch highlights. I’m guessing based on the score I won’t see many Flames 🔥 highlights. It’s ok to be selfish during the holidays 😇😎
  2. Out and about with crappy internet reception here on I-95. Love the score so far! Don’t blow it!
  3. I feel good about this one. I think the guys are still smarting from the sting of losing a game like they did in Vancouver. They know they can put numbers up like they did in Edmonton. A combination of confidence and determination - ****** off from losing a hard-played game - can be the keys for a rebound performance. I think we win this.
  4. Can't Afford to"Peter Out" Now! Vs Calgary, AB - Saturday, December 14, 2019 - 4:00 PM EST Do we find it ironic that disgraced NHL coach Bill Peters was "fired" by the "Flames"? OK, poor attempt at humor there. We won't exacerbate that topic any further in this forum. This is for sure though: the Carolina Hurricanes (19-11-2) will not have their former bench boss looking on from the opposing bench when they visit the Calgary Flames (18-12-4) on Saturday afternoon in Calgary. The Canes will certainly be facing a red-hot Calgary team that is currently riding a seven-game winning streak. In order for a storm surge to douse these scorching Flames, they will have to play some stingy defense (check), generate some offense (uhhh), and stay out of the sin bin (no comment). This will be a huge test for Carolina, coming off a head-scratcher 1-0 OT loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday night. The Hurricanes have earned three out of four possible points thus far - not too shabby - but will have their hands full against a tough opponent seeking their eight straight win. Carolina must dig deep, play with fervor, and attempt to be disciplined. I have given up on the Canes ability to fix their penalty woes. I am accepting the fact they're not as disciplined as they should be, and they just have to continue to kill penalties with business-like precision. I'll change my stance on that if/when we see improvement. This is the second and final meeting between the two clubs for the 2019-20 campaign. Carolina edged Calgary 2-1 in Raleigh on October 29, 2019 on two Andrei Svechnikov goals - one being the famous "lacrosse" magic trick that clowned Flames goalie David Rittich. Calgary topped the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-2 at home on Thursday night. Expected Calgary lines as of December 13, 2019 (Source: www.dailyfaceoff.com)
  5. Not a devastating loss but very annoying we couldn’t convert, and to echo other grumbles in here, the no goal call. Only in hockey can you put a donut 🍩 on the scoreboard and still come away with something 😐.
  6. If we spend half the game on the PK, maybe even strength should be like a PP for us 🤷🏻‍♂️
