Stalking the Standings

The Canes took care of their own business by defeating Montreal last night. One would have liked for the Canes to have avoided overtime but they will gladly take the two points and move on. Elsewhere, the Capitals defeated the Flyers 3-1 meaning there is no way the Canes can catch them in this upcoming home and home series. The Islanders took down the Coyotes 2-0 and the Blue Jackets throttled the Canucks 5-0.
