Friday’s 3-0 shutout win was special for Eddie Lack, Hurricanes goalie, as it ended a five game losing streak. Lack missed a lot of the season due to injuries and worked hard to return to game level. The Senators couldn’t handle the surge from the Canes in the first period and could not respond to the second period goals. While the game attendance was light, the crowd was enthusiastic and in a good mood for the weekend.
The evening was dedicated to “Hockey is for Everyone”, an NHL initiative with local LGBTQ organizations attending and some Hurricane players used pride tape on their sticks during the warmups. Lack (volunteer ambassador for the team) tweeted: “This was a night I’ll never forget. I’d like to dedicate this shutout to love, equality and togetherness.”
