Game 1: vs Ducks 2-5 PIM : 6 Fights : 0 Ejections : 0 Shots Conceded : 38 The scoreline it must be said is very flattering for the Canes. It could have been so much more. Corey Schwab must be commended for his work as he held the Ducks at bay for most of the game. Canes were outshot in the first two periods 32-8. But going into the third the score was still 2-2. Go ahead goals by Poti and Smolinski was canceled out by Corson and Hrkac. It took until the 3rd when the flood gates open for the Ducks and the class took over. Goals by Rolston and Matvichuk sealed the game at 4-2 while Rolston put the stake further in the hearts of the Canes. Game 2: @ Senators 1-6 PIM : 8 Fights : 0 Ejections : 0 Shots Conceded : 40 The Canes were asleep from the get go. The first goal came directly from the first face off. It took 8 seconds for the Sens to get the first goal of the game, which scored by Modano. This seem to wake up the Canes. But defensive lapses late in the period cost the Canes two goal as the Sens were kept in check. In the second, the Sens just keep coming at the Canes and but the Canes played some good hockey resisted. No goals were scored in this period. In the third, like in the previous game, the Canes ran out of steam. The Senators rammed home three more goals before the Canes got a consolation goal. Despite being dragged, Canes goaltender should be congratulated for the work done so far.
