Hamilton's return buoys Canes entering Game 3 vs. Bruins

Now that defenseman Dougie Hamilton has returned and provided production, the Carolina Hurricanes are feeling even better about their chances in their Eastern Conference first-round series.

The Hurricanes have shaken off the recent hex applied by the Boston Bruins and enter Game 3 of the best-of-seven series tied at 1-1 as the teams prepare to collide Saturday afternoon in Toronto.

"Most teams that don't feel they gave their best in the playoffs usually bounce back the next night," Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said of the Hurricanes. "That's why they're in the playoffs. ... (Now) it's our turn to push back."
