We are in Carolina. They have a 19-25-9 record and they are last in the Eastern Conference. That doesn’t mean they suck…well, they kind of suck but they’re still a good team. Hell, they have beaten the Bruins 3 times this season.

Their captain and center Eric Staal leads them in points. Their coveted left wing Tuomo Ruutu leads them in goals. Goalie Cam Ward has a goals against average of 2.80 although the fucker is in fuego the last 5 games and the Canes are 3-1-1. In other words, we are playing a bad team who is hot.

Jonathan Bernier you ask? Don’t know yet. But, I will be upset if Quick gets the start. We are burning Quick out and Bernier has to stay sharp. The only way that happens is if he gets games. It is the only criticism I have so far of Darryl Sutter but it’s a growing one.

So, here we go.
