Stalking the Standings

Well...that was unfortunate. With nearly everyone in action today, the Canes have a golden opportunity to put the disappointment of last night behind them quickly, and if they can get some help from elsewhere they could be fairly secure by the end of the day - or, if everything falls apart, they could nearly be on the outside looking in. It’s a very consequential day.
