Carolina Hurricanes versus Winnipeg Jets as it happened
The Hurricanes netted the puck very early in the game thanks to an aggressive run of play by Elias Lindholm and Noah Hanifin. Each of them scored their first goals of the season. However, the highlight performance of the match came from Cam Ward. The goalie fended off 28 shots out of 29 from the Jets. It included save three saves against the penalties. The 32-year old is the fourth oldest player in the team that mostly has players aged under 24.
Mark Scheifele was the sole scorer for the Jets when he netted his 11th goal of the season.
How are the Hurricanes holding up this season?
The Hurricanes are on a mission to seek atonement. They pumped in five picture-perfect goals past the Washington Capitals. Then came a slender 1-0 win against the San Jose Sharks followed by a tight game against the Montreal Canadiens on last Friday. In all the matches, Victor Rask and Ron Hainsey displayed their talent on the rink assisting the strikers with powerful play.
In the game against the Montreal Canadiens, Ward made 31 startling saves, letting in just one! Hurricanes took 10 shots, scoring just three in the whole match.
What’s in store for the Hurricanes?
Popularly referred to as the Canes, the Carolina Hurricanes take the 4-straight winning advantage to their next leg through Canada. Looking to make it to the Eastern Conference playoffs, the Canes will play the Toronto Maple Leafs in the next match at the Air Canada Center on Wednesday. After that, the Canadiens await the Canes at the Center Bell to seek revenge on November 25. In short, the Canes are perfectly poised to take their unbeaten run through Canada and then past the Californian outing in December.
Will the Canes make it 5-0 on Wednesday?
