Anton Babchuk Strikes!

Canes were victorious over the Devils last night, winning 4-2.

Really, I think they were somewhat lucky in the win, with Martin Brodeur having gotten the all-time wins record the night before, and Kevin Weekes getting the spot in goal.

Not that the Canes wouldn't have won againt Brodeur - I just think it would have been a lot harder (for example, I don't think Brodeur would have gone in on the crappy pokecheck on Samsonov's goal).

The powerplay looked absolutely spectactular, going 3-for-5 on the night, two of the goals coming from Anton Babchuk.

The good news is that the Canes are still in eighth spot - tied for seventh with Montreal at 81 points. Most of the teams around them still have games in hand, though.

Canes play twice this weekend - back to back at home, first against the Islanders (which I won't see) and then against the C[r]apitals (which I might see). Hopefully they can get four points out of them, which would put the Canes in an even better spot for the playoffs.

Erik Cole stats: 1 assist
With the Canes: 2 goals, 7 assists
On the season: 18 goals, 18 assists
