  1. That’s my territory (Waukegan/N. Chicago). Grew up on all that stuff before I got hooked on Bojangles, eastern NC BBQ, and gallons of sweet tea 😂😂
  2. While I’m bummed about Haula I am encouraged by Edmundson's contributions. I think everyone has another gear or two they can kick it up to.
  3. The good (or bad) news is there is plenty of tasty artery-clogging goodness from both locations to please the tastebuds. Let’s hope the heartburn doesn’t come in the form of an “L” tonight 😬
  4. I know some really excellent folks from Buffalo who are devout Sabres fans and they are not part of the revolting crowd many of us Canes fans have experienced. For them I feel (a little) bad. Nonetheless, I recall getting into a heated exchange with their rowdies at PNC as recent as 2016. Thankfully cooler heads prevailed but I came to dislike the Sabres more actually in recent years than in 06. So I still love to hate them despite records 🤷🏻‍♂️
  5. Gimme a Chicago dog 🌭 and a Carolina burger any day, let’s go Canes! 😎
  6. Poor Buffalo. After a taste of victory against Ottawa, they almost let a rookie score a hatty on them in a 4-1 loss in Chicago to return to losing ways. Chicago is 15-1 in the last 16 games vs Buffalo, Carolina has a 10 game win streak vs the Slugs, and who knows how many other teams own them. So does Caniac nation have sympathy for this wayward franchise ??
  7. Not sure if it is Cinderella bandwagoners that like what we did last year and/or did the whole “Jerks” mania, but there is some showing of Caniacs on the road in my experience.
  8. Good times! We need to work on keeping leads. A blown lead here or there is no biggie but it’s a trend with us. That is fixable though. We’re on a good path and grabbing 2 points most importantly. 👍🏽
  9. Totally missed this game. Was out of town and in an area where the internet totally sucked. Glad for the ”W” but as always it looks like this wasn’t without drama 😒 Will have to watch highlights. Either way it’s 2 points.
  10. Need to see a business-like approach today. No messing around. Lay some hits and crash the net. No cutesy stuff.
  11. Although I can’t stand the Bruins, Caps, Blues, and Ducks.... those teams have a history of being physical, aggressive, and punishing on their opponents. That in itself goes a long way toward success.
  12. In a "MILD" State of Hockey... Vs Xcel Energy Center Minneapolis, MN So the Canes (11-7-1) kicked off a three-game road trip in Buffalo on Friday night that provided as much drama as any hockey fan could want/stomach/tolerate in narrowly escaping with a 5-4 OT win. Now the Raleigh skaters are in the "state of hockey" to face the Minnesota Wild (7-11-1) in a Saturday afternoon matinee. A once promising Wild team has declined in recent years, but like their Eastern Conference equivalent (Buffalo Sabres), they can still scare the crap outta ya. This is a(nother) team Carolina will not want to take lightly, as they should have learned during a recent four-game debacle vs "lesser" teams. Now that Carolina has some momentum back, the opportunity presents itself for a solid two points. Also, the Canes get good news on the return of Jordan Martinook to restore some much-needed grit. Minny beat the Yotes 3-2 Thursday night. Carolina took both meetings last season. The Canes nipped the Wild in Minneapolis in OT 5-4 on October 13, 2018. They also won the game in Raleigh on March 23, 2019 in less dramatic fashion by a 5-1 tally. I'm going full Terminator mode during this road trip ... Hope our guys will leave the Twin Cities with a "W" ... Hasta La Vista, Baby 😎
  13. We gotta take care of the Buffalo Sabres of the Western Conf next game. Hopefully with less drama.
  14. Skinner is still on a garbage team so let him score and have his fun. His scoring for Buffalo has never cost us 2 points (yet). I hope he scores 20 vs the Caps and Aisles.
  15. Being a Canes fan is easy!!! Said no one ever
  16. 10 straight over those bums 🙌🏽🙌🏽
