The Hurricanes have gone beyond "free fall mode" they're fully engulfed.
A fourth straight loss at Madison Square Garden and another slide into the abyss with a collapse that saw the once tied game break wide open in a span of seconds with Rangers goals. (Goals 2 and 3 for NYR were 9 seconds apart)
When things go bad for the Hurricanes, they go really bad. Once goals two and three were scored, it was as if they stopped skating and they lost all will to fight.
The Canes don't have time to fix anything as they'll face the Pittsburgh Penguins at the RBC Center on Saturday night.
The calls for Paul Maurice's ouster get louder on every loss.
- Canes were outshot 40-35 in the game.
- Canes were 53% on their faceoffs with Brandon Sutter at 72%.
- Jussi Jokinen returned to the lineup
- Zac Dalpe was a healthy scratch with Derek Joslin
