After an exciting day in the hockey world, everyone felt like something good in hockey was achieved. Don Cherry was finally stopped. It was fitting that the Sens would play the team that got to him the most, bunch of jerks you say. It seems the Cherry firing really did energize the Carolina Hurricanes as they came out firing on all cylinders and never really stopped.
The start of the game really set the tone for the rest of the night. Less than a minute into the game, the Sens defense struggled to get the puck out of their zone and a simple wrister by Warren Foegele slips through Anders Nilsson for the first goal of the game.
