Canes drop fifth straight with 3-0 loss to Kings

“By game’s end, the Canes (21-20-7) looked back at missed chances. Sebastian Aho had some good looks, once firing a shot that glanced off Budaj’s stick, then the crossbar. The Canes also had a pair of power plays in each of the second and third periods but came up empty-handed, getting off five shots.”

In 10 days, Hurricanes squander months of hard work

“In 10 days, they gave it all away. They go into the All-Star break back where they started, on the outside looking in, tied with five other teams for last in the conference with four teams to leapfrog, losers of five straight.”

About Last Night: Hurricanes somehow sink even lower

“For the first time in 82 games the Canes got shut out, and the bad times seem to be getting worse and worse. Last night just continued to show the walls of that hole are starting to cave in and the way out is becoming smaller and smaller by the game.”

Kings score 3 late in 3rd to beat skidding Hurricanes 3-0

“‘This was huge,’ said Doughty, the veteran defenseman who is set to play in his third straight All-Star Game on Sunday back home in Los Angeles. ‘We really needed that. It was a great win. I thought they outplayed us maybe the first two periods, but Budaj made some great saves to keep us in it and we came with a flurry at the end.’
