And we're done Hockey for another season

Monday, June 19, 2006 7:28 PM

Congrats to the Hurricanes, they were the better team tonight. Edmonton just didn't seem to have the same desire or want...well, until the last 10 minutes of the third period. Bad passes, players just standing still looking around instead of finding the puck and attacking it, bad penalties...these were all things that Carolina didn't do, and as a result, they're the winners.

Edmonton did something pretty amazing though. They went from a “no chance in hell” to “well, they squeeked in and will be out in the first round” to having all of Canada cheering them on. And let's not forget that they had some amazing games in this series...its just tonight that they were outplayed.

And when you look at the individual stories of the Hurricanes, like Brindamour, Doug Weight, Eric Staal...you can't feel bad about them winning.

And now...on to Football!

I thought the third period was an amazing 20 minutes of hockey. I know that twice they played for about 5 minutes straight without a whistle, just end to end rushes, no penalties. Both teams were looking for the next goal, the skating was there. Man what an ending.

Too bad for the Oilers but Carolina won the first two periods to clinch it. And I'm happy for Glen Wesley who I'm guessing will retire now. 6/20/2006 6:08 AM | Jason Row
