Nightly Recap: 'Canes Returning to Stanley Cup Form

Welcome to the Recap:
In the only game on Tuesday night, the Toronto Maple Leafs got absolutely pasted 7 - 1 by the Carolina Hurricanes. Toronto got off to a fast start as Bryan McCabe scored the Leafs lone goal in front of the ACC crowd. Captain Mats Sundin earned the assist, tying him with Darryl Sittler for most points as a Maple Leaf (916). The Carolina offensive attack is the Illegal Curve MONSTER of the night as they scored seven unanswered goals by seven different players.

Carolina is now 2-1-1 to begin the season. Eric Staal is off to a hot start with five points. A much slimmer Cam Ward has allowed only 5 goals in 3 games, proving that his playoff run 2 years ago was not just a hot streak. This type of dominance over the Leafs, shows early signs that the 'Canes are back to Stanley Cup form.

Some news, perhaps:

There will be a whopping 12 games tomorrow night. All times Eastern

8:00pm: EDM@MIN
10:00pm: BOS@ANA
10:30pm: PHI@VAN

The Rangers/Islanders game will be nationally televised in the U.S. on Versus and the Edmonton/Minnesota match-up will be nationally televised in Canada on TSN. Should be a great night of hockey.

Ballhype: hype it up!
