Live Game Thread and Preview - Canes at Lightning

I was not feeling well today, so I am combining the "Live" thread along with a short preview for the game tonight. After demolishing the Calgary Flames last night, the Canes are now in Tampa to take on the Lightning. Carolina has yet to lose to the Bolts this season, and will be looking to sweep them for the first time since the franchise moved south.

The second game of back-to-backs have been pretty good for the Canes as they will bring a 9-2 record with them in these situations. John Forslund mentioned that Cam Ward will get the start in goal tonight, consecutive games or not.

The Hurricanes can not afford to take the game off and need more points to keep up with their playoff competition, even though they are 7-3-0 in their last 10. Game time is at 7:30 and the contest will be broadcast locally by FS Carolinas.
