The WhalerCanes have just completed their first ever three road game sweep ever. E-V-E-R EVER! Is sweeping a three game roadie *that* hard? Apparently for this somewhat hapless franchise, yes.

The NHL has parity like no other sport, so I'd say yes it is that hard. Even the struggling teams can lay a 7-2 whooping on a top tier playoff bound team any night.

Canes are continuing to look good this year.

Boston Bruins played their first game in Boston on this date in 1928. Follow this link to near the bottom of the article and see a great example of what sports reporting was all about in the days before tv, streaming video, and instant contact with the world. No, I was not at the game.

Of course not; that's silly. You were home watching it on your iPad, right?
