Canes scrimmage in preparation for season opener

Posted January 15, 2013

— Although real hockey is still a few days away, the Carolina Hurricanes continued their preseason work Tuesday with a Red/White scrimmage at Raleigh Center Ice. 

The teams, comprised of both Hurricanes and a few members of the Charlotte Checkers called up to help, played three 18-minute periods in what will serve as the only preseason "game" before Carolina opens the season Saturday in Florida.

Recap the action with tweets from 620 The Buzz radio host Mike Maniscalco, senior web editor Aaron Schoonmaker and others.

    I agree, a nice crowd in there for sure. The guys looked good, I really like Eric Staal and Semin they looked like they were clicking already!
