Preview: Canes at Leafs

I asked Jumbo from Canes Fanatic to write a preview about the Hurricanes for us. Fresh off of our last preview which included toilet jokes and someone having sex with their cousin, PPP and I decided to let a Canes fan have the stage in the interest of fair journalism. Enjoy.

Hey y'all, Jumbo here. I'm sure you're all well aware of the proud history of the Carolina Hurricanes. There's not a lot else to watch besides the Hurricanes what with the Panthers losing to the Cardinals, but at least Nascar starts back up in a month.

That Eric Staal's a pretty good player though I tell you what. Sure, me and Mrs. Jumbo (our wedding was convenient because we both had the same last name, and having the same parents made figuring out who paid for the reception easy as well) don't always see eye to eye on some things, but at the end of the day we can always agree that Eric Staal is a swell guy while drinking Natty Ice in our new doublewide.

Thanks for that Jumbo. Good to clear the air of stereotypes so that Southern hockey fans don't feel that we unfairly pick on them. Toronto plays Carolina four days after giving up a 4 goal lead before winning 6-4 in Carolina. There's really not a lot to preview, you all read our previous thoughts on Carolina last Thursday, and I doubt anyone's clamoring for Southeast Division news (sorry JP).

Puck drops at 7:30, remember your SPG picks.
