Canes hand Tampa first road win

Well, Tampa Bay had lost all of their past 7 road games going into last night's game. Let's just say the Canes helped them to break the streak...

Yep. A 5-1 loss to the Lightning last night.

Canes looked sluggish in the first two periods of the game. Actually, the third wasn't much better, but at least Ray Whitney notched a goal.

An interesting occurence was that there were absolutely no penalties in the first 32 minutes of the game! And, of course, the penalties that they do call are complete crap (read: Vincent Lecavalier penalty shot).

Anyways... Canes played like crap. Not really much else to say other than that...

What's really odd is that Keith Aucoin was sent down to Albany today and Ryan Bayda was called up. I didn't think Aucoin was playing too bad - I wonder why he was sent down? Is there some kind of cap/contract issue I'm not aware of?


Next game is Saturday against the Thrashers.

Sooo... Is it possible that the Cane's could lose a game without playing like crap? The last posts have all been "the Canes were great" or "the Canes sucked"

Why yes, it is possible. That just hasn't been the case for the past few games...
But, hey, I call 'em as I see 'em...
