If you recall, in the Steaming Blog's NHL Preview Special, we prognosticated that the Carolina Hurricanes would emerge with the Stanley Cup in June. We would like to retract that prediction now, as through 16 games the Canes' record stands at 2-11-3 (7 pts), which is good for 30th in the NHL (note: there are 30 teams in the NHL).

Greensboro)With two normal defensemen out of the lineup (and another shit-faced from Margarita night), the Steamers dropped a 5-1 decision to the Blizzard. The Steamers fell behind 2-0 early but drew within a goal after Dan Auston scored to open the 3rd Period. The Blizzard quickly regained the momentum, answering with 2 goals on the very next shift to put the game out or reach.
The game was marred by a humorous stick swinging incident between Alan Davis and one of those crazy Jarrett Boys, which will forever be remembered by the now immortal words"Why are ya'll doing this to me?" A photo of the incident is above.
The Steamers return to the ice on Wednesday, November 11 vs the Panthers. All Veterans will be admitted free.
