    Make that THREE STRAIGHT W's for the Canes. Last nights game was a great exmaple of how this team should be playing every night. We have done a great job at keeping pucks in the offensive zone and keeping opposing teams on their heels. Playing with this level of intensity and awareness is just going to lead to more wins. Also great to see Corvo have the game he did, well deserved. Not the biggest or most physical defensemen on the ice, but brings an offensive side to his game that really can boost our attack. Staal extends his point streak, which is still the longest active one in the NHL, and I agree with you jgunn, this team is poised to make a playoff run this year if we can just hold it together.

    Thanks for the heads up about getting this forum a little action, trollslayer. It's great to see fans of Duke, State, and Carolina all on the same side for once.

    As for the Canes, I'm loving it! Muller has tinkered with the lines, and it's paying huge dividends. Great to see players like Corvo and Tlusty playing so well. I was afraid with Gleason out last night, it might be trouble for the Canes, but other guys stepped up. Having Ellis as Cam's backup is terrific!

    It would be great to see the Canes make the playoffs this year, and they certainly have the talent to do it. Go Canes!!!

    Also good to see a guy like Tim Wallace getting a chance in Carolina, he has played hard and aggresive giving the Canes solid minutes on that 4th line, which has really looked like a 3rd line at times.

    The forechecking last night was outstanding, aggresive throughout all 3 periods. And lets be honest, Justin Faulk is our most solid defender (all around) and the TO he had right infront of Cam was a fluke. Its great to see Semin & Staal gelling together, and you can tell a lot of the players are really starting to get their legs under them, especially a guy like Jordan Staal who with a big body like his can get up ice quick and create in transition with ease.

    Looks like we have our lines sets for the near future barring any injuries, and as far as Joni is concern this is all I was able to find as of today:

    "Joni Pitkanen left Tuesday's win over the Devils with a lower-body injury. Hurricanes coach Kirk Muller said after the game that he did not know of the severity of Pitkanen's injury, the Charlotte Observer reports."

    I was going to put something up here about the lack of traffic myself. I"m a huge Tarheel fan but since they aren't having one of their better seasons I'm even more interested in the Canes than usual. They are looking much better than the first two games. I think they have real potential to make a deep playoff run. Wish I could go to the games at PNC but with 5 in the family and bills to pay we can't afford it even on Family Nights :(

    After claiming 9 of a possible 12 points on this long road trip, the Canes are in a great position to keep the momentum rolling. Tlusty has been playing great these last couple games, and the chemistry is really starting to build on our lines. I was glad to see us send Seteguchi back down, he was getting burned badly at the NHL level, along with Westgarth. If we played with the intensity we had last night against the Devils all the time, then we will be a force come playoff time. Right now there is still a lot to be worked on, namely DEFENSE and power play effeciency. These next couple games at home are huge for us and will need the fans there for support. I realize this forum isn't nearly trafficked as much as the UNC/Duke/NCSU ones, but hopefully we can get some good hockey discussion going on this season. Hopefully some of you guys can make it out Thursday as the Canes take on a red hot Toronto team thats on a 4 game win streak.
