Carolina captain Justin Williams sums up playoff loss with disgusting analogy

Carolina Hurricanes’ Justin Williams faces reporters during a media availability Wednesday, May 8, 2019, in Boston, in advance of Thursday’s Game One of the Stanley Cup Eastern Conference final series against the Boston Bruins.

Playoff losses can be hard to swallow. Just ask Carolina Hurricanes captain Justin Williams.

After his team suffered a 6-2 loss to the Boston Bruins on Sunday, Williams summed up the experience with an unappetizing analogy.

“Sometimes you gotta eat a poop sandwich,” Williams said. “It doesn’t taste good. You have to chew on it for a little bit, and we’ll have to do it for a couple of days and get the taste out of our mouth next game.”

The Hurricanes trail 2-0 in the Eastern Conference finals. They’ll host the Bruins in Game 3 on Tuesday night.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
