Canes win!

Canes won in a shootout thriller against the Flyers 6-5.

The best part about this win? That it's a win!

The lamest part about this win? That the Canes had the lead 3 times, and let the Flyers tie it up 3 times.
And that Joffrey Lupul scored a hat trick.
And the Canes had several chances to retake/extend the lead on the powerplay but failed miserably (most notably in the overtime period). Canes powerplay ended up being 0-for-7.

But, I think all that was made up by the sheer awesomeness of Brind'Amour's winning shot in the shootout. The puck looked like the goalie Biron stopped it, but it went up in the air, landed on Biron's back and scooted into the net!

Next game is against Toronto. Hopefully that game can be as exciting as the last two! (And a win. Wins are good.)

Erik Cole stats: 2 assists
