History was made last night in Calgary. Carolina goaltender Mike Murphy was credited with the loss despite not allowing a goal. Murphy came in after Cam Ward surrendered his 6th goal of the evening and the Hurricanes trailing by 3. The Canes immediately scored and Murphy, making his NHL debut stopped the only two shots he faced before pulled for an extra attacker. Jarome Iginla scored an empty netter to make it 7-4. Then Carolina scored two more making the game winning goal Iginla’s empty-netter. And with the empty netter as the decider, Murphy was on the hook for the loss.
