  • Marty's party kicks 'Canes out of playoff contention

      RBC CENTER/RALEIGH — Martin Brodeur showed that, in spite of a few playoff hiccups, he still remembers how to school Carolina. He posted shutout No. 109 Saturday night and his team connected for four goals at Cam Ward's expense. Carolina went scoreless for the seventh time this year after being shut out once in the entirety of last season. It also dropped its third 4-0 contest of the last month. More importantly, the team is now officially out of playoff contention. Though Carolina would have lost a tie in the standings with Philadelphia, it had a chance with Boston. But Boston pulled away with a 2-1 overtime win over Toronto, putting the final nail in Carolina’s postseason coffin months after it was taken off life support when half the team was lost to injury or trade. Carolina has a bright future with NHL-ready players like Zach Boychuk and a potential top-three pick if the team blows the remaining three games on the schedule. Boychuk said he was taking notes during New Jersey’s convincing win tonight. “We’re a young team,” Boychuk said. “We can definitely learn from [the Devils] and use it for next year.” Maybe it was the weather, but walking into the building, you could close your eyes and swear it was a playoff game. However, with this performance, Carolina couldn’t have won the couch potato Olympics. An early goal took the energy out of the ‘Canes and Cam Ward wasn’t as solid as he’s been in his three games since returning from injury. Dainius Zubrus went in completely alone on a power play seven minutes into the first period and had an Old West-style gun draw with Cam Ward. Ward did his best rock wall impression but the puck found its way through his pads. The Carolina goalie looked genuinely pissed off after that one.
