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

Wednesday, October 24, 2007


Tonight is a big game for the Carolina Hurricanes. They'll be taking on Buffalo for the first time this season. In regular season play, Buffalo has beaten Carolina five times in a row, and they will be bringing their best to Carolina.

Rod Brind'Amour will be riding a six game point streak. No Sabres players have any streak going.

Cam Ward is 5-0-2 this season, and has looked sensational. His GAA is 1.87 and his save percentage is .937. Ryan Miller is not looking himself this season with a record of 2-4-0, a GAA of 2.86 and a save percentage of .892.

For the Canes, Erik Cole, Scott Walker and Andrew Ladd will be missing from the forward lines while Dennis Seidenberg will miss another game for the defense. This makes 27 man-games lost to injury in the first 10 games.

Please check out BFLOblog for a Buffalo perspective (and probably some liveblogging during the game). Kevin might root for the wrong team, but he's one of the best hockey bloggers out there if you ask me. Last season, I lost a "bet" to Kevin, and was forced to write a glowing article about Daniel Briere. There is no wager this time

Sadly, I won't be in attendance, but I'll be glued to my TV.
