Happy March, y’all. It did not come in like a lion. In yesterday’s news today, the Hurricanes overcame a three-goal deficit but lost in overtime to the Canadiens [sad trombone]. On the positive side, they managed not to lose ground in their quest of the second wild card spot. Though in the midst of a six-game road swing, they don’t play another game until Thursday so they returned home last night and have a day off from practice before hosting a sold-out Canes Bash tonight benefitting the Hurricanes Foundation. Back on the ice tomorrow. In the meantime, here are today’s reading assignments.
