Interesting ending, to say the least...

Canes won 4-3 last night against the Islanders.

An interesting game, to say the least. The Canes played much better throughout the game - but the Islanders got 60 shots on goal. That's a shot a minute! Luckily, Cam Ward was able to stop 57 of them.

None of those shots was more important than the last one. Gleason covered up the puck in the crease, leading to a penalty shot for the Islanders - with only .7 seconds left on the clock.

Talk about putting the game on the line... put Cam Ward turned up with a big stop against Doug Weight, and the Canes won it.

Chad LaRose looked great, getting his first two goals of the year for him.

Bad news, though. Brandon Sutter went out in the third period after Doug Weight leveled him with a shoulder to the head. Wasn't Weight's fault - a victim of unfortunate circumstance most likely - but Sutter took a few minutes to come to and wobble off the ice.

I really hope that he's not seriously injured. He's had a great start this year for his rookie season, and that would be a real bummer to have him knocked out.

More updates on that when I read 'em...

Next Canes game is in Montreal Tuesday - no TV, so I'll be listening to Chuck K on the radio...

Chad LaRose stats: 2 goals
On the season: 2 goals
