COLUMBUS, OH.– The Carolina Hurricanes came into Tuesday’s NHL contest struggling just as bad their hosts, the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The Raleigh, NC. based-team had an overall record of 2-6-2, with only 6 points. Equally as bad was their road record of 0-5-1. Just like the Jackets, the Canes were at the bottom of the Eastern Conference’s Metropolitan Division.

Something had to give between two struggling teams.

The Hurricanes, who had trouble last season when facing the CBJ with Sergei Bobrovsky in goal, took advantage of him being out and bombarded backup Curtis McElhinney with 19 first period shots, scoring two goals for a 2-1 lead.

Carolina received goals from LW Zach Boychuk on a rebound shot at the 15:33 to open the scoring. At 17:08, center Riley Nash scored off another rebound and the visitors were off and running at 2-0.

The crowd of 15, 638 let the Blue Jackets know they were upset. The CBJ came out of the dressing room with a lackluster effort, getting out-worked and knocked around while getting outshot 19-8. The team was hurt by penalties all night.

The amazing aspect of the first period, was Columbus looked solid on the power-play but tentative and disinterested when they were playing 5-on-5.

Carolina went on to score two other goals by Justin Faulk and Eric Staal, an empty-netter to seal the win at 4-2.


* The Hurricanes have now won three games in a row: 3-0 against Arizona, Los Angeles 3-2 and Columbus.

*Carolina is 9-9-1 all-time, 4-5-0 at Nationwide and 5-4-1 at PNC Arena in Raleigh.

* Goalie Cam Ward won his first game ever vs. the CBJ and has a career record of 1-4-0.

* Jeff Skinner is two goals shy of 100 NHL/Hurricanes goals.

* Zach Boychuk skated in his 100th NHL game on 10/23/14 at Calgary.

* Tim Gleason skated in his 500th Hurricanes game on 11/1/14 against Arizona.

* Carolina is a penalty-free team. They rank ninth in the NHL for fewest penalty minutes per game at 10.0. The Hurricanes averaged just 7.9 penalty minutes per game last season, the lowest in the league. They became the first NHL team to average fewer than eight penalty minutes per game since 1967-68 when Pittsburgh (7.4) and Chicago (7.9) accomplished the feat.

* Team captain Eric Staal celebrated his 30th birthday last Wednesday, October 29. Staal ranks in the top ten for games played (8th, 772), goals (9th, 290), assists (8th, 401), points (6th, 691), power play goals (6th, 98) and shorthanded goals (4th, 16) of active players before their 30th birthday.

Hall of Fame Hockey player Gordie Howe is resting after suffering a stroke on Sunday in Lubbock, Texas.

The news was reported by his daughter, Cathy, who he was visiting at the time.

The stroke has left the 86-year-old Howe with some lost function on the right side of his body, involving his arm and leg. His speech is slurred but can recognize and identify people he is familiar with.

Howe, who in a 26-year NHL career, was a 23-time All-Star playing in 1,767 games, scoring 801 goals, dishing out 1,049 assists and netting 1,850 points. He led the Detroit Red Wings to four Stanley Cups. Howe also played for the Hartford Whalers before retiring in 1980.

At the time of his retirement, Howe was the NHL leader in career goals and points before Wayne Gretzky broke those records during his career.

The Pittsburgh Penguins fired head coach Dan Bylsma and hired a new GM, Jim Rutherford all in the same day.

The 65-year-old Rutherford resigned the same position back in April with the Carolina Hurricanes. He replaces Ray Shero, who was fired three weeks ago.

Rutherford is a former 5’8, 160-pound goalie in the NHL from 1969-1983 with Detroit, Toronto and the LA Kings.

This is a homecoming for him with Pittsburgh, as he played goaltender for the team in the 1970′s.

After his playing career, he spent 20 years with the Hartford Whalers franchise, who moved to North Carolina in 1997 and became the Carolina Hurricanes. Carolina won the Stanley Cup in 2006.
