RALEIGH http://www.officialcoyotes.com/authentic-adidas-clayton-keller-jersey , N.C. — The Carolina Hurricanes put together a start to the season that matched the best in franchise history.Now after a couple of blips, it’s time to regroup.The Hurricanes return to home ice for Saturday afternoon’s game against the Colorado Avalanche at PNC Arena.Article continues below ...Carolina lost in regulation for the first time this season in its past two games after a 4-0-1 start.“We’ve been working on some things,” coach Rod Brind’Amour said. “We spent time on special teams, obviously.”Carolina gave up a hat trick to Tampa Bay’s Tyler Johnson on Tuesday.Colorado is coming off Thursday night’s 5-3 victory at New Jersey, where captain Gabriel Landeskog logged a hat trick.“That’s why he’s the captain, that’s why he’s our leader,” defenseman Ian Cole said. “A lot of guys stepped up, but him especially.”Three points in the first two games of a four-game East Coast trip have given the Avalanche a good vibe.“To get off to a start like that, guys are having fun,” Landeskog said. “It’s important to get a win when you stay patient and work for everything you get.”The Hurricanes have relied on an aggressive style and fast starts in games this season. The Avalanche might be playing the style that can match that.“I think (Landeskog) had our team focused and ready to go,” Colorado coach Jared Bednar said of the game against New Jersey. “I thought we were the aggressors to start the game.”Brind’Amour said the Hurricanes need to straighten out the power play, but he’s generally content with what he has seen five-on-five.“We’re giving up chances, but that’s going to happen,” he said.Still Youth Derek Stepan Jersey , the Hurricanes have made a roster move, bringing forward Clark Bishop up from Charlotte of the American Hockey League. Rookie center Martin Necas, after scoring his first NHL goal earlier in the week, and defenseman Haydn Fleury were sent to the AHL club.Bishop will get a chance to show how he has progressed, working on the fourth line.“We want to see (do) what he has done all training camp and those games down in Charlotte,” Brind’Amour said. “He’s energy. We’re expecting good, hard, honest effort.”Necas doesn’t figure to be down in the minors for long, Brind’Amour said. But this provides a chance for him to refine some areas.“He’s an NHL-caliber talent,” Brind’Amour said. “He’s playing a tough position at center. We need to get him a little more ready away from the puck. I want him to have confidence when he comes back to us.”It appears that the return of goalie Scott Darling might be a bit away as he comes back from a preseason groin injury. He has returned to practice, but he’s not likely to be on the ice Saturday.“You don’t want to push it too soon,” Brind’Amour said.Right winger Sebastian Aho has at least one point in each of Carolina’s first seven games.The Carolina home game is a rarity for this weekend, with the North Carolina State Fair going on at the grounds adjacent to the arena. SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) Bill Torrey Womens Jason Demers Jersey , the jovial bow-tie wearing Hall of Famer who was the general manager of the New York Islanders when they won four consecutive Stanley Cups in the 1980s and eventually became the first president of the Florida Panthers, has died.Torrey died at his home in South Florida on Wednesday night, the NHL said. He was 83.No cause was immediately revealed, though he was not known to be in any sort of poor health. Torrey, who spent the last several years of his career as an advisor to Florida general manager Dale Tallon and also serving as the franchise’s alternate governor, was at work like usual in his Panthers’ office earlier this week.”Bill was a giant of our game,” Tallon said. ”He was the architect of a dynasty, a Hockey Hall of Famer and most importantly, a committed family man. I’m heartbroken by the news of his passing. Bill was a mentor and a dear friend who was instrumental in bringing me to South Florida to work alongside him. He was a wonderful person who never lost his passion for the game and loved being at the rink.”Torrey left an indelible impact on hockey, particularly the Islanders and the Panthers.He was the first employee in Islanders history when the franchise was born in 1972, and the team raised a banner in his honor years ago calling him ”The Architect.” Torrey then became Florida’s first president, and the Panthers gave him a banner in 2010 with the number ”93” – a nod to 1993, when the team played its first game.”He was a pioneer, who became a mentor and even better friend Paul Thompson Jersey Womens , to so many in the industry,” Islanders president and general manager Garth Snow said. ”The teams he constructed set records that may never be broken, including the four straight Stanley Cup Championships and 19 straight playoff series wins.”Florida reached the Stanley Cup final in 1996 under Torrey, falling to Colorado. Earlier that season, Torrey went into the Hall of Fame as a builder who specialized in taking expansion teams and turning them into quick winners.NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman called Torrey ”a true legend of our game.””His imprint is on virtually every team in our league, as he personally mentored and inspired generations of NHL general managers who have followed him and established the team-building blueprint based upon scouting, drafting and player development that today remains the model for lasting success,” Bettman said.Brian Burke, a longtime hockey executive, asked Torrey for some advice in the early 1990s and remembered getting about a four-sentence answer on how to build a club.Burke never forgot any of those words, and they became the guide that he’s used ever since – even when putting together the 2010 U.S. Olympic Team that lost a classic gold-medal game against host Canada at the Vancouver Games.And what Torrey did, Burke said, will never be matched.”Bill Torrey won four consecutive Stanley Cups with the Islanders,” Burke said in 2011. ”It’ll never be done again. In a salary cap system I think you’re lucky to win two Cups in 10 years. But you’ll never win four in a row again with this format.”William A. Torrey was born June 23 Troy Brouwer Jersey Womens , 1934 in Montreal. He attended St. Lawrence University in Canton, New York, studying business and psychology. His first hockey front-office job was with the AHL’s Pittsburgh Hornets in the 1960s, and his NHL career started in 1967 when he was hired as executive vice president of the California Seals – another expansion club.He went to the Islanders in 1972, then to the Panthers in 1993 and never left.”An original Panther and the forefather of our franchise, Mr. Torrey had a champion’s spirit and lived for the game,” Panthers owner Vincent Viola said. ”His indomitable energy and his commitment to hockey and to South Florida was inspiring. It was an honor to work with him and know him.”Torrey is survived by four sons, a brother, a sister and 10 grandchildren. Funeral arrangements have not been revealed.—
