Canes drop first game.

Right now I'm "studying for Statistics", so I'll make this post short, okay?

Canes lost 4-1 to the Bruins last night, which, oddly enough, is the exact same score they lost in Game 1 against the Devils last series.

Unlike the first Game 1, the second wasn't anywhere near the level of lameness. The Canes played okay last night - a few good chances, but a few poor plays as well, specifically the Tuomo Ruutu intercepted pass across the middle that led to the Bruins' third goal.

The bright spot of the night was Jussi Jokinen's goal in the first period. This guy is on fire of late. If only some of his other teammates would step up as well... *cough*ErikCole*cough*

To win Game 2, I think the Canes need to, well, play better. Playing merely okay will not win them a game against this Bruins team. They need to play some of their best hockey - and maintain it!

Game 2 is tomorrow on Versus, so that means that we finally can get coverage outside of our own market.
