Touchdown Hurricanes!

And the extra point is good!

Ever have a significant other / grandparent / child who seemingly has no idea what sport you are watching but tries to act like they care? That worked last night, "yeah honey, they just scored a touchdown on the ice".

The Canes brought out the boo-birds early and had the suits in the suites for the majority of the 2nd & 3rd periods at the ACC by wholloping the Leafs 7-1. Better yet, they did it for all hockey fans who watch TV in both Canada & the USA - there were no other games even played last night!

Damnit, Chad LaRose deserved to get some points and goals last night. He got straight up robbed several times by Leafs goalie Vesa Toskala who actually made several brilliant saves while his teammates hung him out to dry. Anyone remember the last time we matched up against him? He got smoked in net for San Jose towards the end of last season.

Did anyone else hear the VS color commentator at the end of the game refer to the team as the "Whoricanes" ?
