Canes let a point slip away

Canes lost in a shootout to the C[r]apitals on Saturday. They didn't play too bad, but it was another case of a point they should have had with a win.

Erik Cole had a very nice goal in the first period to start off the scoring, but the Canes let Washington score three in a row. Luckily they were able to scramble back to a tie, thanks to an excellent Niclas Wallin goal. Unfortunately, that's all they could do, and the C[r]apitals outshot the Canes in the shootout.

Now they don't play until Wednesday, and we have to play the waiting game to see who will win and lose in the East. The Canes still have more games played than most of the others in the East, and are currently in eighth.

*sigh* Why couldn't they win more games earlier in the season?

Erik Cole stats: 1 goal, 1 assist
With the Canes: 2 goals, 6 assists
On the season: 18 goals, 17 assists
