  Panthers 5, Hurricanes 0

4 – Looking for a goal or a point? Just call forward Richard Zednik. He has been red hot lately. Netting his 11th of the season to give the Panthers a 2-0 lead 12:49 into the first period, Zednik has recorded points in four straight games (4 goals, 2 assists).

93:15
– One streak did come to an end Thursday night in Carolina as the Panthers were called for a penalty for the first time in over 90 minutes of hockey against the Canes (93:15) when Kamil Kreps went to the box for tripping 18:21 into the first period. The Cats did not get called for a penalty in their last game against the Canes on January 8th in a 4-2 Panthers victory at the BankAtlantic Center. The last penalty was a Noah Welch fighting major with 15:54 left in the third period on December 18th.

12 – The Cats would double their score from two to four in the blink of an eye, potting two goals past Cam Ward just 12 seconds apart midway through the second period. Anthony Stewart, racing in on a breakaway, beat Ward for his second of the season 9:30 into the middle period and Gregory Campbell netted his 12th off his own rebound at the 9:37 mark.

17 – When the season began, the question was, where would the offense come from with the trading of franchise leading scorer Olli Jokinen. Well 54 games in and the offense has been there as the Cats have scored at least four goals in a game 17 times with their 5-0 victory over Carolina. 10 of those four-plus goal games have come after the new year. They’ve only played 17 games in 2009 (averaging 3.71 goals a game).

2 – For the second straight game, Kamil Kreps found the scoreboard twice while collecting the first assist on goals. He picked up the first assist on Stewart’s goal sending the forward on the breakaway and then his shot on Canes netminder Michael Leighton, who had taken over for Ward, clanked off the post and found the stick of Michael Frolik who shot it into the open net for his 12th of the season.

5 – Cory Stillman enjoys haunting his former team. Playing in 22 games against the team he had spent 2 ½ seasons with, Stillman now has 23 points (8 goals, 15 assists) as he was awarded the second assist on Frolik’s goal. In the four games this year against Carolina, Stillman has two goals and three assists.

11 – It was a total team effort in the Panthers victory as 11 different players found the scoresheet including five different goal-scorers. Kreps and Nathan Horton both had multi-point nights (goal, assist) while Keith Ballard, Jay Bouwmeester, David Booth, Campbell, Stewart, Radek Dvorak, Zednik, Stillman and Frolik all had points.

42 – Carolina threw 42 shots at Tomas Vokoun but the Cats netminder stopped all of them for his fourth shutout of the season. The Canes had 15 shots in the first, 14 in the second and 13 in the third. 14 of those shots came with Carolina on the power play. The 42 shots were 11 more than his next closest shutout when he stopped 31 against the Islanders on October 18th. The four shutouts also tie last year's mark for the netminder.

0 – Well it’s a great stat if you’re looking at in terms of the penalty kill but not so great if you’re on the power play unit. The Cats and Canes both had five power play opportunities, but each time the other team killed off the man advantage.

6 – The shot blocking machine that is Karlis Skrastins almost had as many blocks as the entire Carolina Hurricanes team. Skrastins had six blocked shots in the contest, four more than any other player and just three less than the Canes altogether.

25 – Netting all five of their goals at even strength, the Panthers combined to finish a plus-25 in the game. Even more interesting is that 17 of the 18 skaters finished at least plus-1. Only center Stephen Weiss failed to join in in that stat. Bouwmeester led all skaters with a plus-3 while Ballard, Skrastins, Booth, Horton, Zednik and Kreps finished plus-2.
