Devils 3, Canes 2

NEWARK -- Tuomo Ruutu said the Carolina Hurricanes didn't play with enough emotion Wednesday night in a 3-2 loss to the New Jersey Devils at the Prudential Center.

Didn't bang enough. Didn't fight hard enough.

But the question, simply, was why?  The Canes went into the game in eighth place in the East, but with the Atlanta Thrashers and Buffalo Sabres close behind. Why come out so cautiously, with little physical play or edge?

"I don't know what it was," Ruutu said. "I don't know if it's preparation or being ready. I don't know. You're not going to win playing like that."

Jokinen scored twice in the third period and the Hurricanes beat the New Jersey Devils 5-2 at the RBC Center Saturday, the last game before the Olympic break.
