The only Boston sports foe who shrunk more this year than the Hurricanes was Todd Gurley, so it only makes sense the Rams running back served as Carolina’s siren sounder prior to its inevitable Game 4 loss. Gurley, who was last seen running into the line of scrimmage and standing on the sideline in...

Brad Marchand’s antagonism prompted Carolina captain Justin Williams to say he ate a “poop sandwich” following his club’s blowout loss to the Bruins in Game 2. He took the metaphor to its obvious conclusion Tuesday, playing like poop in the Hurricanes’ 2-1 loss. You are what you eat, after all...

When the Hurricanes couldn't score a single goal after getting 20 shots on net in the first period alone, you just knew the Bruins were going to come out strong in the second period. And that they did, en route to a 2-1 win and a 3-0 series lead. It didn't take long. Just 1:21 into the second,...

After watching Petr Mrazek give up six goals in Sunday’s Game 2, on the heels of giving up four in Game 1, Hurricanes coach Rod Brind’Amour said he didn’t pull his goalie because Mrazek didn’t want to come out and that “he has earned that right from me to stay in there.” Maybe so. But this is going...
