Quick Whistles: Burns Notice, Martinook’s Hat Trick, Hurricanes Out West

Photo by Rick Ulreich/Icon Sportswire via Brent Burns goes on a tear for the Hurricanes out west, and Jordan Martinook’s hat trick calls for a trip down memory lane. The Carolina Hurricanes are four games into their longest road trip of the season, and in a couple of weeks, the makeup of their schedule will make a rather dramatic shift. For now, though, the Hurricanes have to be fairly satisfied with their work over the last three weeks. After securing just two wins in a ten-game November stretch, the club has bounced back with four wins in their last five outings...

Metropolitan Division Weekly Roundup: New Jersey Devils Keep on Rolling

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports The Carolina Hurricanes keep a hold on second with seven of eight points on their latest West Coast road trip. 1. New Jersey Devils: 43 Points (21-4-1) It is still worth noting that after the New Jersey Devils lost their first two games of the season their fans fired up a “Fire Lindy” chant. Since then, the Devils have not lost back-to-back games. Their 3-0 win against the Chicago Blackhawks last night also saw them regain the top spot in the NHL. The Devils also set a record for the most wins all time in the month of November with 13,...

Ducks drop Canes in overtime

Ducks drop Canes in overtime

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports The Carolina Hurricanes went to overtime — again — Tuesday night in Anaheim, falling 4-3 to the Ducks. For the mind-boggling 10th time in just 26 games this season, the Carolina Hurricanes went to overtime again Tuesday night in Anaheim. The result was a somewhat familiar one for the Canes this year, as Ryan Strome netted the winner for the home team after a dominant overtime period to send the Ducks home with a 4-3 lead. In those 10 overtime games, the Canes are now 4-6 and have lost 5 of their last 6 games that went to the extra...

Wolves inconsistent season continues in Iowa

Wolves inconsistent season continues in Iowa

Ross Dettman/Chicago Wolves If you thought a 4-0 win would spark continued offense, you’d be wrong. How quickly things change in the AHL. The Chicago Wolves broke a four-game losing streak by turning in one of their more dominant games of the season, and then turned around to give up seven goals the next night. That’s the way things go in this league, where drastically different results in back-to-back games is more common than you’d think. On Saturday, the Wolves headed to Iowa and proceeded to turn in a stellar first period, outshooting the Wild 19-7 and...

About Last Night: Marty Party!

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports It’s Jordan Martinook’s world, we’re all just living in it. The Carolina Hurricanes picked up their third straight win — a great way to follow up the five-game skid — Thursday night in St. Louis, as a Jordan Martinook (yes, Jordan Martinook) hat trick led the way to the 6-4 win. Martinook led the way in the victory, which also featured three goals from Carolina in just 64 seconds in the second period that turned a 2-0 deficit into a 3-2 lead. The Canes seem to be suddenly feeling it again, a great sign for a team that just last...

The Carolina Hurricanes won a complete whiplash of a game over the St. Louis Blues thanks in large part to the heroics of one Jordan Martinook who picked up his second career hat trick Thursday night in a 6-4 victory at Enterprise Center. That game started out looking like it was going to be a long night for the goal deprived Hurricanes but in a flash the game completely...

Quick Whistles: November was a Weird Month for the Hurricanes

Photo by Bruce Kluckhohn/NHLI via The month of November was a weird one for the Carolina Hurricanes, and now they embark on their longest road trip of the season. The month of November was a weird one for the Carolina Hurricanes. After winning six of their first nine games of the season, the team started and finished a run of 14 games in 25 days with back-to-back wins. In the other ten games, they went 2-4-4, scored just ten goals in their eight losses, and had a five-game skid that featured four overtime losses. Already hampered by injuries, they lost their starting...
