Eric Staal is a Beast!

Two games to catch up on. First was on Christmas Eve Eve against the Wild - Canes lost that one 3-2.

I only saw the first two periods of the game, and the Canes looked really good to begin with, going up 2-0 early in the second period. Then they just kind of lost their momentum and the Wild scored three unanswered in that period, and then the Wild won the game.

Then there was last night's game, which I feel really stupid for forgetting to watch it. Mainly because the Canes won 5-4 and it sounds like it was an entertaining game.

There were two hat tricks in this game, the career first for Atlanta's Bryan Little, and Eric Staal's career sixth. Staal scored all three goals within 4:31 of the third period.
And I watched the game highlights online - Eric Staal just had Johan Hedberg's number in that game. The second goal was just a rifle of a shot.

And Chad LaRose started off the scoring for the Canes, breaking out of the slump he was in. YaY!

Canes play tonight against Boston. Hopefully it'll be as entertaining as that one was - even just to watch the highlights!

Chad LaRose stats (Friday): 1 goal
