A Carolina Hurricanes blog with occasional news about the rest of the NHL.

are you ready to rumble?

I'm almost out the door, headed off to tailgate for a couple of hours before the game.

My quick thoughts about today. This game will go to overtime, as will at least two other games in this series. It will go to seven games. The Canes will take it, especially if Tim Connolly is unable to return to the Sabres lineup.

I think that at some point in this series, probably game 2, Carolinas "energy line" of Adams/Adams/LaRose will start to get some stats. Specifically, Chad "Sharpie" Larose will score a goal. He's been flying, and has had several grade A chances denied. He'll get his just deserts.

Oh, and if I haven't mentioned it, I'll be rooting for the Oil out west. Oil in 6.
