It's a new decade!

So there's been a whole new decade since I last posted, but I'm having a nice chill break so I don't really care much. The Canes went 1-0-1 against the Rangers over the New Year, which, let's face it, is one of the better records of this season.

On New Year's Eve, the Canes lost 2-1 at the RBC Center. Neither team played very well, so when the Rangers went ahead in the third I don't think the Canes had anything to counter it with.

Then the Canes won in overtime two days later by the same score. Ray Whitney scored the game winner in that one.

In between was the NHL Winter Classic, which was awesome as normal this year. First fight in an outside game between Dan Carcillo and Shawn Thornton - seriously, would you have believed a Flyers-Bruins game without a fight?

After the game the US Olympic team roster was announced. No Canes made the team, although I personally think that Tim Gleason should have made the roster.

More recent news is the announcement today that Eric Staal will likely miss the next two games with personal leave for the death of his sister-in-law. I'm sure our thoughts are with him.

The next game is tomorrow against the Predators.
