In the Canes loss to the Wild last night, Cam Ward, Jeff Skinner, and Brett Bellemore all were injured. With Khudobin still out for another two weeks, the Canes are riding an AHL goaltending duo of Justin Peters and Mike Murphy, which may not go down well. For caniacs like myself, it is very stressful considering last season’s collapse after losing Ward. The Canes lost a very consistent offensive threat with Skinner going down, but at least he’s considered day-to-day, while Ward is out for 3-4 weeks. Sadly it’s beginning to look like his career will be cut short, as he just is not durable anymore. His chances for making team Canada is already almost out the door. Hopefully the Canes will make it past this rough stretch.
