Options for the Isles' last Compliance Buyout

Having already used one of their two compliance buyouts from the new CBA, the Islanders have some decisions to make before the start of next season. Improvements need to be made and impact players need to be brought in if there is any hope of contending next season. Due to their already small budget, a compliance buyout may have to be used to make sure that they have money available to acquire the right players.

The New York Islanders hit the road to Raleigh, North Carolina to face the Carolina Hurricanes Tuesday night, kicking off a mini two-game road trip.

Blackhawks calm the Hurricanes with 3-2 win

 

The Blackhawks came into the game with a somewhat depleted force. Out of the line up with injuries were Kane, Saad, Bickell and Rozsival. As the mantra goes, the next man up which gave recently called up Jeremy Morin a chance at some United Center Ice.

The injuries also forced coach Joel Quenneville to come up with some unusual line combinations out of necessity. The constant and familiar Corey Crawford however was in net for the Hawks. Anton Khodbin was in the Carolina net.

The Blackhawks dominated the first period with good puck control and dictated the pace and play of the game yet were unable to score. The period went scoreless.

Blackhawks get 3-2 shootout win over Carolina

The Blackhawks once again leapt out to a lead over their opponent ... and once again, let their opponents back into the game, survived overtime, and managed a win in the shootout.

It's been an all-too-common refrain for the Blackhawks, not only this season, which is less than 10 games old, but from past seasons: Chicago delivers a solid first period, hits cruise control in the second, and scrambles to not give the game away in the third.

Blackhawks prepare for the Carolina Hurricanes

The Blackhawks will travel to Carolina to once again face an Eastern Conference team that they have not seen since 2011. They will also be facing a team that would love nothing better than to say they beat the champs.

The Carolina Hurricanes are coming into the contest with a 2-2-2 record and fresh off of back to back losses from the sticks of the LA Kings and most recently the Phoenix Coyotes. 

During the Phoenix game starting goalie Anton Khudobin had to leave the game due to a lower body injury on a fluke play when he left his net to play a puck and seemed to twist awkwardly.  Cam Ward will no doubt be in net for the Canes.  For the Hawks don’t be surpr...
