Fresh off of a 2-1 loss to the Habs, the Carolina Hurricanes will look to start another win streak on Saturday against the Ottawa Senators.
Here’s how they will line up in Ottawa:
Jeff Skinner - Jordan Staal - Sebastian Aho
Teuvo Teravainen - Victor Rask - Elias Lindholm
Brock McGinn - Derek Ryan - Lee Stempniak
Joakim Nordstrom - Jay McClement - Viktor Stalberg

Mike Hoffman - Derick Brassard - Mark Stone
