Kirk Muller was happy with how his team fought Thursday night.
He called the second period the best the Hurricanes have played all season as they knotted the game up at two on 21 shots. But then things unraveled in the third. "In the second we did everything we possibly could and pushed hard," Muller said. "But we went into the third and they got that third goal, which was the breaker in terms of now they really sat back and played safe. "I thought the guys played hard but fell short. We threw 40-something shots at the net and Price came up big."
