08:22 AM ET 04.05 | Between Joni Pitkanen's injury, a "sell" at the trade deadline and a 1-9-1 slide over their past 11 games (which included Thursday's 5-0 loss to Tampa Bay), this has been a difficult week in Carolina. "It couldn't have come at a worse time," general manager Jim Rutherford said of the team's recent slide. "We spent more money on our team this year. I believe we had a team in place that was a very good team. But when I talk about it coming at a worse time, this is a year we have decided to raise ticket prices and do different things. That doesn't sit right with the paying customer, when they watch a team that was so good in the first half (of the season)."

How about that? And a coach? Maybe.

Wondering if J. Staal is enjoying the weather down there? ;)

Gentlemen, Kate Upton Wants You to Shave "Down There" (E! Online)

Can I just say that there are very few things I care less about than Kate Upton's opinion on the amount of hair in the male nether regions?

Congrats on the Caps to making it in the play-off picture...they're heating up at exactly the right time.

Congrats is right. I'm glad that SOMEONE in the horrid southeast has decided that they actually want to make the playoffs.

What a game. saw the highlights. If Bishop provides stability at the back end then this will definitely put the lightning in a position to compete next season.

"We spent more money on our team this year. I believe we had a team in place that was a very good team.........."

On paper .... you have a very good team. But, teams don't play games on paper.
