After Game 1, the prevailing opinion was that the Bruins were too much for the Hurricanes. But with their dominant win in Game 2 in Boston, Carolina has stolen home-ice advantage and has everyone rethinking where this series may go.

Cam Ward outdueled Tim Thomas, Eric Staal won Round 2 against Zdeno Chara and the Canes missing scorers showed up in the form of Matt Cullen and Joe Corvo.
