If there’s a surer sign of a trap game than a team on a 6-game winning streak playing a team on a 6-game losing streak, I haven’t seen it. Especially when the team on a winning streak is one that many players around the league grew up supporting, because they’re GOODONTARIOBOYS. Potentially confusing exposition aside, last night’s contest was one that surely came as a relief to Canes fans and players.
As a result of the Canes losing a 6th straight game in which they’ve scored but one goal, I’ll not be writing a full game recap (you’re welcome, or sorry… whichever one is more applicable to your thoughts on my writing). Instead, I’ll be jumping on the new internet phenomenon of GIFs to summarize the 60 minute contest. Enjoy!
Narratives… get ya narratives here! In this week’s episode we talk potentially historic amounts of one goal losses, give thanks for hockey friends, and are regaled by Andrew Berkshire from Habs Eyes on the Prize. It’s a good week closed out by an even better beer from Boulevard Brewing. So, its time to get in the goalies eyes and finally score more than one. Thanks for listening, and please, leave us a great review on iTunes if you loved it! We greatly appreciate it.
On the heels of a 3-1 loss to Detroit the night before, YOUR Carolina Hurricanes took to the ice last night against the New Jersey Devils. Eric Staal played after being a game time decision, Tim Gleason and Alex Semin would man the press box along with Zach Boychuk, and GOOD GOD THAT’S BRAD MALONE’S MUSIC!
When times get tough and the world is getting you down, you just have to find a coping mechanism to get you through. In this weeks episode, we dive into a 1-4 HOMESTAND OF CONSEQUENCE and try to figure out where we go from here. We share how we cope, and encourage you to share using #CanesCopingMechanisms. We get all excited for this weekend’s Welp #Drink Watch Party sponsored by @TaxiTaxiRaleigh and review a beer that is Smutty and delicious. Thanks as always for listening, and we hope to see you this Saturday at Tylers!
Join us at Tylers Tap Room in Raleigh, next Saturday, 12/13 at 1PM to watch our Hurricanes take on the Philadelphia Flyers. Let’s get together, have a brew or two, eat some great grub, and cheer the boys on to victory.
What’s a watch party without some specials though…right?
-Show a TaxiTaxi Raleigh receipt from 12/12 or 12/13, and your first beer ($8 or less) is on the good folks at TaxiTaxi for the first 50 attendees.

So, spread the word. We have room for 50 people before things get tight. The game will be on, the beers will be flowing, and Mike & Derek will be there yelling at the TV in some form or fashion. If this one is a success, there will definitely be more to come!
As of 9pm EST, our long Caniac Nation nightmare is over. Alex Semin no longer has a bagel in the goals column. Unfortunately for Canes fans and Anton Khudobin, the Capitals ended up leaving with 2 points on a night where the home team put forth a very up and down effort.
