After a difficult day for the world yesterday, today’s Daily Cup of Joe offers a tiny bit of levity in trying to collect (with readers’ help) the absolute best moments of the Carolina Hurricanes from the past two seasons.
Requirements are that it needs to be more of a ‘moment’ captured in a minute-ish or ideally less, so this is not looking for full games.
Please add to the list in the comments or ping us on Twitter to have yours added.
In no particular order but loosely categorized….
