About Last Night: Another Day, Another Road Loss for the Canes

Danny Wild-USA TODAY Sports For the fifth straight time to open up the postseason, the Carolina Hurricanes went on the road and lost Tuesday night in MSG. History continues to repeat itself as the Carolina Hurricanes enter another Game 5 with it all tied up. This is eerily familiar to the Canes first round matchup with the Boston Bruins, where a myriad of penalties and a lack of offense came to bite the Canes as they play on the road. Let’s take a look at what happened last night: Came out strong The Canes have yet to win a road game during their playoff ventures...

The Carolina Hurricanes lost in Game 4 at MSG to the New York Rangers to see the series tied up 2-2. The Canes have won every game at home this postseason and lost every game on the road. They will have to hope that at least half of that trend will continue as they prepare for Game 5 on Thursday night at PNC Arena. After the game, head coach Rod Brind’Amour along with Sebastian Aho and Jordan Staal spoke with the...

Canes lose on road yet again, series tied heading back to Raleigh

Photo by Bruce Bennett/ The Carolina Hurricanes have yet to win a road game in the postseason so far and that trend continued as they lost 4-1 to the New York Rangers Tuesday night at MSG. If you thought this series would be any different for the Carolina Hurricanes, you are sorely mistaken. In a direct mirror to what happened in the first round, the Hurricanes put together a 2-0 series lead and then subsequently lost the next two games on the road in demoralizing fashion. Maybe it would feel different if the power play could do anything — 0 for 2 tonight — or if...

Carolina Hurricanes at New York Rangers: Game 2 Lineups and Discussion

Photo by Jared Silber/NHLI via The Canes still seek their first road win of these playoffs. Despite a 2-1 loss in game 3 that left them still seeking their first road win of the playoffs, the Hurricanes are sticking with the same lineup they’ve had since the third period of game 1. Frederik Andersen has returned to practice, but Pyotr Kochetkov will still back up Antti Raanta. Here’s how the Canes will line up for game 4: Teuvo Teravainen - Sebastian Aho - Seth JarvisAndrei Svechnikov - Vincent Trocheck - Martin NecasNino Niederreiter - Jordan Staal - Jesper...

Photo by Jared Silber/NHLI via Never mind M.T. Knett; the Hurricanes’ true nemesis is literally any building other than PNC Arena. Can the Canes turn the tide at MSG tonight? Of all places, Madison Square Garden is probably the least preferable location for the Carolina Hurricanes to break their road-game hex during these playoffs. After all, it wasn’t too long ago that the Canes had a winless streak in Manhattan that stretched for more than nine years. But if the Hurricanes are going to make a run to the Stanley Cup, at some point they’re going to win a game in...

About Last Night: Not very special

Danny Wild-USA TODAY Sports In a game where the Hurricanes played well at 5-on-5, it was once again the special teams that cost Carolina a playoff game on the road. The Carolina Hurricanes certainly didn’t play a terrible hockey game Sunday afternoon in Madison Square Garden, as the Canes heavily outshot, out-chanced and out-possessed the New York Rangers in a pivotal game three. But the result — which is, of course, all that matters — tells a different story, as the Rangers won 3-1 to climb right back into a series where Carolina was desperately looking to slam...

The Carolina Hurricanes’ road woes from the first round carried over into the second round Sunday afternoon in Madison Square Garden, as the Canes fell 3-1 to the Rangers as New York cut a 2-0 series deficit to 2-1. Mika Zibanejad and Chris Kreider put goals past Antti Raanta to give New York an advantage in the game, with Tyler Motte adding an empty netter to ice the game. Nino Niederreiter scored...

Hurricanes’ Special Teams Come Up Short, Rangers Win Game Three

Photo by Bruce Bennett/ The Hurricanes’ power play came up empty yet again in game three, and now the Rangers are right back in the series. The Carolina Hurricanes looked to slam the door on what has been a relatively concerning trend in these playoffs - losing on the road. The Boston Bruins won all three of their game at TD Garden in the first round, and while the Hurricanes have held remarkably strong at PNC Arena, one would think winning on the road will eventually become a must for a team looking to win a Stanley Cup. That didn’t happen on Sunday at Madison...

As was the case in the first round as well, the Carolina Hurricanes have handled their business with the home-ice advantage so far in this second-round series with the New York Rangers. The Canes, up 2-0 after two close games at home, will now look to do something they haven’t done yet this year: win a game on the road in the postseason.

In another tightly contested game with another unlikely goal-scoring hero, the Carolina Hurricanes took hold of a 2-0 series lead Friday night with a 2-0 win over the Rangers in PNC Arena.

The Carolina Hurricanes shutout the New York Rangers 2-0 in Game 2 on May 20 to take a 2-0 series lead.

Photo by Bruce Bennett/ The Carolina Hurricanes put together a full-team, defensive effort to win Game 2 against the New York Rangers by a final score of 2-0 Friday night at PNC Arena. If you thought that this would be a fast-paced series, with both teams exchanging goals and going blow for blow, well I’m sorry to say that this has not been the case. After a 2-1 overtime final in Game 1, Game 2 followed that performance up with an even stingier 2-0 final. But if you’re the Carolina Hurricanes, all you care about is the fact that you have a 2-0 series lead over the...
