Tuesday night, the Carolina Hurricanes suffered a devastating loss to the Boston Bruins. After holding a 4-1 lead in the third period, the Hurricanes watched helplessly as the Bruins scored five unanswered goals in the final 9:56 of the game.
Many analysts in the preseason picked the Hurricanes to return to the playoffs this year for the first time in nine years, but with the loss to the Bruins, the Hurricanes dropped to eight points behind the Columbus Blue Jackets, who hold the second and final wildcard spot in the East.
After the game, former Capitals forward Justin Williams, who signed with the Hurricanes during the offseason, sounded off on the frustrating season. The 36-year-old forward has 45 points in 70 games.
