The Buffalo Sabres, (38-22-10) are in Raleigh to tangle with the Carolina Hurricanes, (30-33-8) for what will be the second game in consecutive days for both teams. The game has a 5 p.m. start time.
The Canes beat the Pittsburgh Penguins, 3-2 in overtime yesterday afternoon while the Sabres defeated the Florida Panthers, 3-1 in Sunrise, Florida last night.
Justin Peters will be in net for Carolina. There is no update about Manny Legace, so it's assumed he will be healthy enough to be the backup.
Ryan Miller played last night for Buffalo, so it's expected that Patrick Lalime will go for them today.
Look for the Canes to have to same lineup as yesterday.
Jamie McBain has the longest point streak going for the team and has points in three straight games, (1G 3A). Will he have any more gas in the tank after playing 29:50 yesterday? How about Joni Pitkanen, who logged 34:30 of ice time?
The Canes will be starting the festivities early with a lawn party and other activities in the afternoon. For more information, check out this link.
