Last night my home was filled with so much steering, screaming, and excitement that my boyfriend had to go to Urgent Care this morning. (That’s not a lie)

Playoff hockey is back in Raleigh, and the NHL’s Carolina Hurricanes made sure to come back strong after two years away. The Hurricanes looked strong in their second-round matchup against the Nashville Predators, winning Game 2, 3-0 Wednesday night.

Can we just take a moment to say THANK YOU to the team’s former Charlotte Checkers goalie Alex Nedeljkovic? The dude stopped a goal without a stick…you are our hero. Game 3 will take place on Friday night in Nashville, TN with Carolina leading the way.

Let’s take a look at some of the best images from Game 2.
