Canes trail Flyers 2-0 at 2nd intermission

Posted October 2, 2009

After two periods against Philadelphia, Carolina is down 2-0.  The Hurricanes trail mostly because of missed opportunities.  Carolina has yet to score on five power-play chances.

The Flyers have out-shot the Hurricanes 22-16, including two Philadelphia shots that hit the back of the net in the first minute of the 2nd period.

Just 47 seconds into the 2nd period, Philadelphia jumped out to a 2-0- lead.  Power play goals from Jeff Carter and Mike Richards came just 22 seconds apart.

The Canes mustered only eight shots in the opening period on opening night.  Meanwhile the Flyers have tested Cam Ward with 15 shots on goal in the first frame.

Ward has been up to the challenge; stopping every Philadelphia shot fired his way.  It's safe to say he is looking like the $38 million goalie that he became this week.

Among the 1st period highlights:

-Tim Gleason getting penalized 17 minutes for instigating a fight with Philly's Daniel Carcillo

-Carolina killing two penalties

-An Eric Staal goal overturned due to a hand-pass call on Andrew Alberts
