The Carolina Hurricanes scored two goals in the last minute and twenty seconds and snatched victory from the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night to capture the series and move on in the playoffs. Jussi Jokinen blasted a shot past Martin Brodeur on a pass from Joni Pitkanen to tie the score at 18:40 and Eric Staal put one past the goalie just 48 seconds later for the game winner.
Many fans will be heading to the airport to welcome the team when they return later tonight. For more information about where to go and what time the team will arrive, check out this page at the Hurricanes main site.
Cam Ward had another outstanding game and made save after save to keep the Canes in the contest. I'll have more details and thoughts about the game and the series a bit later, as well as a report from the airport.
This is another game that will be long remembered and will go down in Hurricanes folklore, much like the "Miracle at Molson". You just don't see an ending like this one.
Much more later.....
