REVIEW: TORONTO 5, HURRICANES 0

by Staff Writer / Carolina Hurricanes
TORONTO -- The Carolina Hurricanes suffered their first shutout of the season last night at the hands of the Toronto Maple Leafs and their goaltender, Curtis Joseph. The Leafs topped the Canes 5-0 at Air Canada Center despite Carolina out-shooting Toronto, 27-23.

The Hurricanes had several good scoring chances, particularly in the first and third periods, but Joseph would not let one by. He has 29 shutouts in 600 career games. He's allowed just one goal in his last three games.

Carolina Hurricanes goaltender Tyler Moss entered the game in relief of starter Arturs Irbe mid-way through the second period and tallied 13 saves in 32 minutes of work.

Former Carolina Hurricane Gary Roberts scored two goals in his first game against his former team.

"I have so many feelings for that organization," Roberts said. "They treated me with nothing but respect for the three years I was there. They understood why I decided to come to Toronto. I came home, and I have a chance to win a Stanley Cup."

The Hurricanes host Toronto in the second game of the home-home series Friday night at 7pm.
