Tough 5 Weeks Keeps 'Canes Outside Playoffs Again

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- The Carolina Hurricanes can't seem to figure out how to play well for a full season -- even one that's only 48 games long.

For the fourth straight year and sixth time in seven seasons, the Hurricanes missed the playoffs.

And once again, a serious slump was to blame.

An injury-riddled stretch in which they earned only three points in five weeks sent them tumbling from the Southeast Division lead and doomed them to yet another early offseason.

Carolina went 1-13-1 from March 14-April 11 and set a club record with eight consecutive home losses.
