....So why was Ty Conklin behind the net last night?

Hardin called it inexplicable, but OLN's John Davidson, a former NHL goaltender, said Conklin was right to clear the puck behind the net. He just blew the pass. And Rod Brind'Amour just has a knack for being in the right place at the right time.

I'm calling Canes sweep. I posted last week that the Oilers would be a worthy opponent, and obviously they are.

But I've watched a lot of seven-game series in my life, and trends indicate that when a team totally dominates Game 1 but lets it slip away, it sets a demoralizing tone for the rest of the series.

Dwayne Roloson's injury doesn't help the Oilers' cause, either. Then again, hot goalies come out of nowhere. Nobody's proved that more than the Canes.
