The new-look Hurricanes will get to show themselves off to their home crowd for the first time tonight as Carolina hosts Nashville in team's first home preseason game of the season. It will also be the first preseason action for several Canes, including captain Eric Staal, goaltender Cam Ward and reigning Calder Trophy winner Jeff Skinner.
Also in the lineup are newcomers Tomas Kaberle, Anthony Stewart, Tim Brent and Alexei Ponikarovsky, and rookie defensemen Justin Faulk and Ryan Murphy. The game will be streamed online by the Hurricanes, featuring the normal duo of John Forslund and Tripp Tracy, and also called by Chuck Kaiton on 99.9 The Fan.
