Bruins at Hurricanes: Game Day Preview

The Carolina Hurricanes, (15-28-7) and the Boston Bruins, (23-19-8) get right back to action tonight for a game starting at 5 p.m. at the RBC.  Both teams played Saturday afternoon and both teams suffered setbacks.  The Canes lost a close 4-2 decision in Philadelphia while the Bruins were defeated by Ottawa, 2-1 at home.

Hurricanes backup goalie Manny Legace is still fighting a bout of pink eye, so the team recalled Albany goalie Justin Peters to back up Cam Ward for this contest.   The oft used Carolina goalie started 17 games in a row before taking a partial period off yesterday. 

There is no official word on who will start for Boston, but Tim Thomas played yesterday so Tuukka Rask will most likely get the call.  (Update) Tim Thomas will start again.

Look for the same lines that were used in Philadelphia. 

  • Staal, Jokinen, Whitney
  • Cullen, Kostopoulos, Samsonov
  • Sutter, Tlusty, LaRose
  • Brind'Amour, Yelle, Dwyer

Will Jussi Jokinen and Eric Staal continue their torrid scoring pace? 

The game will be televised locally by FS Carolinas.  I will be checking in live from the arena with the open game thread here starting at 4:30.

Don't forget to drop off spare clothes  for the relief effort in Haiti at the Backyard Bistro on the way to the rink.
