On Tuesday, the Hurricanes blistered the Canadiens 8-2, bringing a beautiful January to an end. Erik Cole had a hat trick, Eric Staal had two goals. Kevyn, CrAdams and Nic Nordgren had one goal apiece.
All of that before Doug Weight joins the team.
In January, the Canes were 13-1 and absolutely crushed their opponents, outscoring them 61-33.
This was the second time in nine days that the Canes have embarrassed the Habs. In each game, Jose Theodore couldn't even get through the second period.
Eric Staal was awarded the second star of the game after racking up three points (2/1), bringing his season total to 69 (33/36). Colsey was the first star with his four points (3/1), bringing his season total to 50 (23/27).
Carolina had five different goal scorers and ten different players gained assists. After trailing 2-1, they got the final 7 goals.
Carolina was 3-6 on the power play, while Montréal was 0-5
Doug Weight will be joining the team on the road and will make his debut Friday as the Canes visit New Jersey on Scott Stevens Night. You will forgive us if we don't help them celebrate the career of a dirty player. And don't think we've forgotten about that hit on our boy Ron Francis.
