Hurricanes at Senators: Game Day Preview

The Carolina Hurricanes, (7-18-6) are in Canada's Capital City to play the Ottawa Senators, (15-11-4) tonight in the final game of Carolina's four game road trip.

This will be a short preview since I am traveling today.  It would not be surprising if the Canes skipped the normal pregame skate and rested up for this game.  The lineup should be pretty much the same as Friday night in Washington, if Tim Gleason can go again. 

Also, Paul Maurice said that he was going to start Manny Legace and give Cam Ward a break.  The team does not want to over-work Ward after just coming back from injury, plus Maurice said that Legace had played well of late.

The Sens are coming off a 2-0 win over the Philadelphia Flyers but have lost five of their last seven games.  Brian Elliott (unconfirmed) will probably be in net for them.

Ottawa is led by Daniel Alfredsson and Mike Fisher

The Canes still have the worst road record in the NHL, (1-11-4) and have yet to win the back end of a back to back this year, (0-5-1).  To their credit, they have been playing entertaining hockey the past several games and are still trying, even though they remain at the bottom of the league.

The game will start at 7 p.m. and once again will be televised by FS Carolinas.  The Open Game Thread will start at 6:30.
