Carolina Hurricanes head coach Bill Peters went with a slightly different lineup during Saturday’s morning skate in Philadelphia. The only change was Sebastian Aho moving to Jordan Staal’s line and Phil Di Giuseppe taking Aho’s place with Teuvo Teravainen and Elias Lindholm.
Eddie Lack will get his second consecutive start after making 24 saves and picking up Carolina’s first win of the season on Thursday in Calgary.
Here’s the lineup that the Hurricanes may roll with on Saturday night (per Michael Smith):
Jeff Skinner - Victor Rask - Lee Stempniak
Sebastian Aho - Jordan Staal - Joakim Nordstrom
Teuvo Teravainen - Elias Lindholm - Phil Di Giuseppe
Bryan Bickell - Jay McClement - Viktor Stalberg
Ron Hainsey - Justin Faulk
Jaccob Slavin - Brett Pesce
Noah Hanifin - Klas Dahlbeck
Smith did add that Peters didn't totally commit to these lines, but he wanted to get a look at some different things. There’s a chance that the Hurricanes end up going with the same lineup that they iced in Calgary.
Losers of three consecutive hockey games, the Philadelphia Flyers will look to right the ship against the Hurricanes on Saturday. Here is the lineup they will try to do it with:
Brayden Schenn - Claude Giroux - Wayne Simmonds
Travis Konecny - Sean Couturier - Jakub Voracek
Nick Cousins - Pierre-Edouard Bellemare - Matt Read
Chris VandeVelde - Boyd Gordon - Roman Lyubimov
Andrew MacDonald - Shayne Gostisbehere
Nick Schultz - Mark Streit
Ivan Provorov - Brandon Manning
