Hurricanes fall in overtime, 4-3 to Winnipeg

Posted April 18, 2013

FINAL: Winnipeg 4, Carolina 3 : Minutes into overtime, the Winnipeg Jets scored to win the game. The Carolina third-period comeback was not enough, and the Hurricanes suffer the overtime loss.

End 3rd: Carolina 3, Winnipeg 3 : At the end of regulation, the Hurricanes and Jets are tied and go to overtime.

1:12 3rd: Carolina 3, Winnipeg 3 : Jiri Tlusty has scored a last-minute goal for the Hurricanes to tie the game at 3-3.

7:38 3rd: Winnipeg 3, Carolina 2 : Down two goals with the game winding down, Tuomo Ruutu scores for the Hurricanes to make it a 3-2 game with seven minutes to play.

11:20 3rd: Winnipeg 3, Carolina 1 : Blake Wheeler adds another goal for the Jets, and the Hurricanes trail 3-1 midway through the final period.

End 2nd: Winnipeg 2, Carolina 1 : The Hurricanes enter the second break down one goal to Winnipeg, 2-1.

Before the game is even over, the Hurricanes have been eliminated from the NHL playoff picture as a result of a New York Ranger win.

9:22 2nd: Winnipeg 2, Carolina 1 : Tuomo Ruutu answers for the Hurricanes minutes later, and the Hurricanes now trail 2-1.

11:33 2nd: Winnipeg 2, Carolina 0 : Paul Postma puts in a goal in the second period to increase the Jet lead to 2-0. Ondrej Pavelec has played well in goal for Winnipeg, coming up with many stops on Carolina scoring efforts.

End 1st: Winnipeg 1, Carolina 0 : Zach Bogosian has the lone goal of the game at the end of the first period. The Hurricanes have managed just 3 shots through 20 minutes.

7:40 1st: Winnipeg 1, Carolina 0 : Winnipeg scores first in this one, as Zach Bogosian turns in a goal to put the Jets ahead early.


Carolina faces the Jets Thursday in Winnipeg and though making the playoffs are a long-shot the Hurricanes aren't playing with any less effort. 

"I think they know realistically they are not going to make the playoffs," Hurricanes play-by-play caller Chuck Kaiton told Mike Maniscalco and Mark Thomas on 620AM The Buzz Thursday. "That really hasn’t changed their game in terms of their effort level. They’ve been working hard; I don’t think they’re thinking about it."

The team's playoff chances hinge on two points, two points either won by the Rangers or Jets or lost by the Hurricanes would eliminate them mathematically. But the Hurricanes, who are 1-2-0 against the Jets this season, have the chance to put that off another day with a win Thursday. 

Carolina will be without forward Jeff Skinner who flew to Raleigh following the Hurricanes loss to the Senators Tuesday after taking a hit to the head from Ottawa's Jared Cowen. 

"They wanted to take precaution, take a look at him," said Kaiton. "I was told that when it first happened that it wasn’t as bad of an injury and he could have come back to play. That all goes well for him to be able to play this weekend."

Bad injury or not it was a big hit that sparked his teammates to respond. 

"If [Skinner]’s got the puck they’re going to key on him and he doesn’t have the size to pull himself through the bigger defensemen," said Kaiton. "And hey, I love team unity but I do think Chad LaRose was nuts to go after Jared Cowen. You got to give him a lot of high marks for that because he was standing up for a teammate."

And standing up for a teammate is what head coach Kirk Muller has been preaching since day one. 

"Slowly but surely Kirk Muller’s message is getting through to these guys, to play for each other. That’s what Kirk wants these guys to do to become a close knit bunch," Kaiton said.

Despite a 2-15 record over the past two weeks, the Hurricanes continue to fight each day, for the win and for each other. 

The Hurricanes lead the league in shots per game with 32.8, they have scored a power-play goal in the past four games and Tuesday’s game marked just the second time in Hurricanes’ history (since relocation) that the team recorded five-or-more fighting majors in a game.

Carolina’s first line of Eric Staal, Alexander Semin and Jiri Tlusty has combined for nine points (5g, 4a) in three games against Winnipeg this season. And Staal is riding a four game streak in which he has earned points either in a goal scored or assist. 

And though the lines will change-up with the absence of Skinner, as Tuomo Ruutu will take his place on the left wing and Tim Wallace will come back into the lineup, expect another fight from the Canes when they hit the ice at 8 p.m. Thursday.

    If they are really fighting hard then there is either a lack of talent or poor coaching, maybe both.

    The "Fighting Hurricanes"who comes up with this dribble. The only thing they're fighting is to stay on their skates when the Jets whiz by

    At the beginning of the season I thought they'd be 6 or 7 in the conference and injuries contributed to that not happening. Injuries aside, until JR decides it's time to get some defense minded defensemen to help Gleason and Harrison, they'll continue to be mediocre. They have guys handing the opposing team the puck too many times.

    I think so too. As much as everyone was jumping all over Cam Ward early in the season, I do think he's still a top goalie and he could have made a difference in some tight games. There were other notable injuries as well.
