    THN.com Playoff Blog: Staal, Canes make Chara, Bruins look average en route to Game 2

    By Ken Campbell

    When he was asked after the Sunday morning skate about Eric Staal’s struggles in Game 1 of the Carolina Hurricanes series against the Boston Bruins, Hurricanes coach Paul Maurice responded in his customary deadpan manner that Staal would be a healthy scratch for Game 2.

    Staal looked less-than-stellar in Game 1, but he played like a player who was afraid of being scratched with a monster performance in Game 2. In fact, he did what almost nobody else was able to do all of this season – he made Zdeno Chara look downright ordinary.

    I agree. You can't win the Cup without loosing a game in the playoffs.

    This article is pretty out there. Chara dominated Staal throughout game 2, constantly throwing him around in the corners and what not. Staal ended up with an assist on the Corvo goal, and an empty netter. Hardly anything special. Cam Ward was the story last night.
