Hurricanes manager Rod Brind’Amour likely pulled his hair out at the end of his team’s victory, but captain Jordan Staal’s game was more than enough to secure the road win.

Well, that was a wild Super Bowl Sunday from Carolina Hurricanes Hockey. They Pull Out A Win 65 Rod Brenda was more likely to pull his hair out because there was way too much helter-skelter play in the end. It was 64 Carolina Patrick Lion A for Columbus scored the second of the game with more than 30 plus seconds to make it +65 and Carolina had to dodge a ball. Jacob Slavin saved the game for the Hurricanes with a great blocked shot. James Reimer fought for the most part but played well in the third game. He allowed one goal in the third period, the Gold Toe Lion A. But he made about three or four really good saves in the period. Eso when it mattered. Reimer was good and he must be with Peter Marra Zakout because of the injury. I am sure we will see Alex Nadal. Covic tomorrow. The substitute goalkeeper, who plays for the Hurricanes in his home state of Ohio, grew up about two hours from Columbus, but Jordan Staal is probably the story here. Stall had a purpose. He had two templates. He has nine points and seven games have played 1 60% of his encounters. His fingerprints were seen throughout the game, especially the last 30 minutes. I thought it was dynamite. Vincent Trocheck picked up a puck in the face in the first period, played another great game for Carolina, and scored his sixth goal. Brett Pesci continues to be excellent. He scored the first full-back goal for the Hurricanes that year. Dougie Hamilton added one later in the third period, but Pesci was probably her best defender and stable and Trocheck and Ah Ho in the middle. Carolina is really, really strong right now, but Jordan Staal was an absolute monster today with a three-point game plus two like he was 23, not 33.
