Whoa! If you would’ve told me that the Hurricanes would set a franchise record and win EIGHT straight, I would’ve looked at you like you had three heads.
There was a slight change in the lineup. As Niederreiter was injured in the game against Chicago, Seth Jarvis got his NHL debut and first point. Andersen was also in net. The Coyotes struck first, but then in the second period, the Hurricanes evened up the score. When it was looking to be an Overtime game, the Canes scored on a power play goal, (Brett Pesce), with a little over two minutes to go. Obviously, we were all holding our breath, hoping for a win.
The team gets two days off, before going to Chicago on Wednesday. Can they make Nine is Fine? Will there be lineup changes? While we don’t have the answer, I think it’s safe to say that Rod Brind’Amour knows what he’s doing.
