So much for that game...

Canes lost 4-1 in Game 1 last night.

They just didn't play well. It almost seemed during the first period that they were tentative, not willing to press for goals.

Really, to me, the atmosphere of the game didn't seem like a playoff game. There wasn't any physicality, there was no fast pace. At least the Philly-Pittsburgh blowout had the feeling of a playoff game, even if it had the same end score.

So, I wan't impressed by this game whatsoever. Cam Ward looked okay, but he certainly didn't get any help from the offense in this one. The Canes definitely need to come out with a fire in Game 2, because more of this nonsense will not win them a playoff hockey game.
