Hurricanes 6, Florida 4
The Carolina Hurricanes scored six third-period goals to tie the franchise record for goals scored in the third period (Dec. 27, 1981) and to bounce back from a 3-0 deficit and take two points from division rival Florida at the RBC Center. Chad LaRose opened the third-period onslaught 1:40 into the period when his shot was partially blocked by a Panthers defender, but managed to find the net behind Florida netminder Alex Auld. With the floodgates then opened, Erik Cole, Scott Walker, Cory Stillman and Craig Adams eached scored in the next 8:22 to give the Hurricanes a 5-3 lead. Olli Jokinen scored his second of the game with 56 seconds remaining before Ray Whitney sealed the deal with an empty-net goal at 19:47 to give Carolina a 6-4 win. Cam Ward started the game for Carolina, and allowed just three goals despite the Hurricanes being out shot 31-14 in the game’s first two periods. Ward was replaced by John Grahame who made six saves on seven shots in the third period to earn the win.

I wish I could see some 'Canes games. Some may say what they will about the team's location, but they have an exciting team to watch IMO.
