Why Grahame is no longer on my Christmas List

The Carolina Hurricanes are still in the hunt to extend their season thanks to the 3rd period save by Cam Ward.

That's right, Johnny Grahame maybe a great guy in the locker room but letting in 3 goals on 6 shots is not going to win games.
Overshadowing the great defensive play of the Hurricanes who out shot the Caps 39 to 10 last night was the not so great defensive play of Grahame. Now I understand he is a backup goaltender and I understand that he has had some pretty good games for us but letting in 3 goals on 6 shots is bad. Really, really bad. He did have one amazing save, which miraculously enough was the only decent shot the Caps had on net. It was the "he should have stopped those" that went in.

Eric Staal ended a scoring drought with a goal, Mike Commodore had a beauty of a SHG and Ladd continued his dominance of the Caps with a goal. Not only was the defense clicking last night - the power play finally produced with Erik Cole scoring at the end of the 2nd period.

Having won 4 of the last 6 games, the Canes are clearing in the hunt to keep playing come mid April. I've already started cleaning the dust off the grill and stocking up on beer, BBQ and chips for some good ole' Canes Tailgating in light of the Canes recent play. They are really starting to look like the players we grew to love last season. Now we just need the beards to start coming in.
