Hurricanes set for home opener versus Rangers

Stempniak Stepping Up

Lee Stempniak is stepping up. In this freshly minted NHL season, the Carolina Hurricanes forward is tied with Victor Rask for the team lead  in goals scored (4), and shares second with Jeff Skinner in total points (6). In what has been a somewhat of a languishing start for the ‘Canes, one of the few bright spots has been the play of Stempniak. Who is Stempniak? Stempniak, the...

Hurricanes Sliding Into Their October Groove

The Carolina Hurricanes are sliding into their October groove. While they have not accumulated the full complement of points that they had legitimate shots at so far this season, they have played hard and are beginning to find a good comfort level with one another.

Young Hurricanes look to take another step forward

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) A young group of quickly maturing defensemen nearly pushed the Carolina Hurricanes into the playoffs last season. Now they're hoping for a similar boost at the other end of the rink.

2016-17 Season Preview: Carolina Hurricanes

Just like the Devils who I wrote about yesterday, the Carolina Hurricanes overachieved quite a bit reaching 86 points. Young defensemen really stepped up giving the Canes one of the best young bluelines in the league. They'll need better goaltending this season and the young forwards to now take that step to make the push into the playoffs. While I don't think they get there because...

Using a regular stick, Lack unleashed a pretty nifty wrister...

Morrison, a closer, was asked to make the start for Coastal Carolina in Game 2 of their WCWS final game against Arizona on Tuesday. He more than delivered. Morrison pitched 6.2 innings on a career-high 103 pitches and...
