A Good game and a Bad game

The Canes season ended in back-to-back games at home.

The first game, Friday night, was a pathetic showing by the Canes (two five-on-threes without a goal!) - they lost 4-1 to Atlanta, letting Atlanta win the division. Anson Carter scored his first goal as a Hurricane.

Yep, that game is completely overshadowed in my memory by the Canes come-from-behind victory! over the Florida Panthers last night.

The first two periods were pretty much the Canes that we saw in the Atlanta game - slow, didn't care - and they allowed Florida to be ahead 4-1 after the second period.

Then came the third period, David Tanabe scoring his second goal (!) of the game to open it up. After that, the Canes were pretty much unstoppable, tying the game up with less than five minutes left.

Then, to seal off the victory, Rod Brind'Amour had a breakaway overtime goal to win the game.

Nice note to end the season on, I think.

And... Happy Easter everyone! Hopefully the Easter Bunny brought all sorts of candy and chocolate and marshmallow animals to you!

Erik Cole stats (Saturday): 1 goal
End of season: 29 goals, 32 assists
