The Carolina Hurricanes will bring some new faces into the fold on Saturday night as they take on the Washington Capitals.

After being recalled from the Charlotte Checkers on Friday, Brock McGinn and Derek Ryan will slide into Carolina’s top-nine forward unit.

Teuvo Teravainen will also join Sebastian Aho and Jordan Staal on the club’s second forward line.

Here’s how the rest of Carolina’s lineup will shake out:

Jeff Skinner - Victor Rask - Lee Stempniak
Teuvo Teravainen - Jordan Staal - Sebastian Aho
Brock McGinn - Derek Ryan - Elias Lindholm
Joakim Nordstrom - Jay McClement - Viktor Stalberg

Jaccob Slavin - Brett Pesce
Noah Hanifin - Ron Hainsey
Klas Dahlbeck - Ryan Murphy

Cam Ward
Eddie Lack

Injuries and Scratches: Bryan Bickell (M.S.), Justin Faulk (upper-body), Andrej Nestrasil (healthy)

After taking down the Chicago Blackhawks last night and improving to 9-3-2 on the season, the Washington Capitals will likely go with the winning lineup once again in Raleigh.

Caps starter Braden Holtby had a busy night in Chicago, stopping 32 of 34 shots, which should open the net up for Philipp Grubauer, who is historically dominant against the Hurricanes, on Saturday.

Alex Ovechkin - Nicklas Backstrom - T.J. Oshie
Marcus Johansson - Evgeny Kuznetsov - Tom Wilson
Andre Burakovsky - Lars Eller - Justin Williams
Zachary Sanford - Jay Beagle - Daniel Winnik

Karl Alzner - Matt Niskanen
Dmitry Orlov - John Carlson
Brooks Orpik - Taylor Chorney
