June is definitely Hurricane season!

I don’t know how many of you watch hockey these days, stuff but I just have to say: You should.

The NHL playoffs this year have been amazing so far, and I look forward to watching the Carolina Hurricanes take the Stanley Cup this month.

Rod Brind’Amour, Cam Ward, and all the other ‘Canes players have put their hometown — Raleigh, N.C. (Or rather, “the Raleigh-Durham Metropolitan Statistical Area”) — on the map this year (Really! It’s on the right-hand side, under Washington, D.C.), and they deserve all the applause they’re getting at the RBC Center this week.

Sorry Oilers fans, but at the risk of sounding like someone who doesn’t spend all day hunched over a keyboard… Go ‘Canes!

  1. Yep. But apparently they already had all the goalies they need up there.

    Oh wait…

    [Commence trash talking…]

  2. ouch, that hurt. 🙁 I’m still mad at that bastard CONKS, and if MacT puts him in net tonight, I’m likely going to try to drown myself in beer.

    Seriously, it’s nice to see Carolina getting into the game. It still doesn’t compare to a stadium of 18000 people who’ve all actually *played it* though. Looking forward to tonight, regardless.

    Ryan Smyth for PM!

  3. Yeah, I have to admit it would be a better series with Roloson on the ice, but I still expect at least three more good games. 😉

    North Carolina is indeed green when it comes to hockey, but it’s great to see the local fans finally showing an interest. Even locally, the 2002 trip to the finals felt a little too good to be true. This year’s feels well-earned, though!

    Most of us in Carolina are too busy with NCAA basketball to notice any other sport until April, but here’s hoping a ‘Canes victory in the finals will help expand our field of vision next season.

    Let’s go!

  4. Oof. Game 2 wasn’t what I expected it be. I’m thrilled with the results, but… where the heck were the Oilers?
