Carolina Hurricanes showed poor performance and eventually lost to Colorado Avalanche 4-7. The Hurricanes didn’t look like a team, they lacked concentration at key moments, and the Avalanche took advantage of every moment.
The Avalanche team, on the other hand, showed team spirit, were aggressive and ultimately deserved the win. What Hurricanese may be most worried about is the injury of center Jordan Staal and goaltender Frederik Andersen. Two top players, who are very important to the Hurricanes.
Carolina coach Rod Brind’Amour was visibly disappointed, which is understandable, given that team will miss two important players, but of course the defeat also affected him. “It doesn’t look good. Tough night”.
- Brind'Amour said, as quoted by firstsportz. The team will have to work on some things, especially now. It is clear that they did not give their maximum, and that there are many problems. “I didn’t like the result,” the coach said, as quoted by ESPN.com.
“Then we get a couple of guys to get hurt. That’s really the major concern. It’s not a good night for us. That’s for sure”.
Sebastian Aho on his team
Hurricanes center Sebastian Aho was also disappointed with the injury of two important players.
Some other players will have to take this chance they will get. “Never fun to watch your own teammate go down,” Aho said. “We have a little adversity right now. We’ll see what we’re about right now.
It hasn’t gone our way lately. A couple of very big players go down tonight. Aho is optimistic about the rest of the season, though, and believes in his team. Hurricanes have quality, but some other things don't seem to be the best.
They will have to find solutions. “These are the moments that a team has to come together, come back even stronger. [I’m] 100 per cent confident that’s exactly what’s going to happen”.
