Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals versus Buffalo was voted the game to watch via our online poll at carolinahurricanes.com. I was watching the game yesterday and it brought back so many positive emotions from Brind’Amour's clutch goal, the energy in the RBC Center, the final horn going off, etc. Come relive the memories with us! Don’t forget to bring a blanket!Activities (begin at 5:30 p.m.):
