Canes eating a 'poop sandwich,' down 2-0 to Bruins

Mrazek, who has stopped 210 of the 230 shots he's faced in the playoffs, was hurt early in the second period of Game 2 of the Hurricanes' second-round series with the New York Islanders on April 28.

Down 2-0 in the Eastern Conference final after being shelled for two games by the Boston Bruins, they need to change something. Boston now has a 2-0 series lead as the teams head to Carolina for Games 3 and 4.

No matter who, the Hurricanes can't expect to win if their goalie has a save percentage anywhere close to the.808 Mrazek had in the first two games.

Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy could have his own lineup decision to make as Noel Accari is nearly healthy enough to play. "Now, we open up, now we get away from even trying to do what we want to do, and there's zero success when we do it that way, so tough night".

The Carolina Hurricanes came into this series with plenty of momentum as they had a six-game win streak going and they had allowed just nine goals over that stretch.

Game 3 will take place Tuesday in Carolina.

In Denver, captain Gabriel Landeskog scored 2:32 into overtime after Colorado squandered a late lead in regulation and the Avalanche beat San Jose Sharks to force a decisive Game 7 in their Western Conference semifinal series.

Former cast member Jason Momoa , who played Clarke's first husband on the show, was sandwiched in between Clarke and Dinklage. Starbucks , of course, reacted to the media frenzy, tweeting on Monday, "TBH we're surprised she didn't order a Dragon Drink".

"I've got to know better", the 37-year-old said, according to Fox Sports Carolina. "I think when we're on our game and skating, we're as good of a skating game as any in the league".

Rask was supported by great defensive play in front of the net by the Bruins, who were outshot 39-29 in a tight physical game that has been the norm in the series.

And when the puck drops, one thing will be clear for the Hurricanes.

Although Boston looked to be the far superior team in game two, outscoring Carolina 6-2, the Hurricanes have weathered that storm before.

Sure, the score was just 1-0, but the Hurricanes were not doing anything to show they were going to give the Bruins any trouble in Game 2. McElhinney allowed just four goals in three games with a.947 save rate. "You're not sitting there nursing it by any means, but I wasn't anxious about Tuukka". It's like having their game thrown right back at them because typically they are the aggressors, the team forechecking relentlessly. D Adam Clendening also was scratched after playing in the last seven playoff games.

I have to agree with Brind'Amour, not the best of tripping calls we've seen.

"We do know going laterally that he plays out, so there may be an opportunity there if you can get him moving because he's out challenging", added Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy.
