Carolina Hurricanes at New Jersey Devils: Lines and Rosters

The ‘Canes will present a bit of a new look in Newark tonight. Here’s what that entails.

Jamie Kellner

After a disappointing 3-5-3 start to the season, Carolina head coach Bill Peters has apparently decided that it’s time for a bit of a shakeup in the way the team lines up to begin most games. Here’s what the ‘Canes showed in today’s morning skate:

Jeff Skinner - Victor Rask - Elias Lindholm
Joakim Nordstrom - Jordan Staal - Andrej Nestrasil
Phil di Giuseppe - Teuvo Teravainen - Lee Stempniak
Viktor Stalberg - Jay McClement - Sebastian Aho

Jaccob Slavin - Brett Pesce
Klas Dahlbeck - Ron Hainsey
Noah Hanifin - Jakub Nakladal

Cam Ward
Eddie Lack

So it’s a new top line with Lindholm moving back to the right wing and Stempniak dropping down to the third line. Teravainen will get a look in the middle. Aho moves down to the fourth line in somewhat of a curious move. Dahlbeck and Nakladal get back into the lineup, with Justin Faulk out due to an injury and Ryan Murphy getting the night off. The merry-go-round of goaltending continues as Ward hopes to carry over from his strong performances in Ottawa and Nashville.

Here’s what the Devils will be showing the Hurricanes as the game unfolds tonight:

Taylor Hall - Travis Zajac - P.A. Parenteau
Pavel Zacha - Adam Henrique - Kyle Palmieri
Mike Cammalleri - Jacob Josefson - Beau Bennett
Sergey Kalinin - Vernon Fiddler - Nick Lappin

Andy Greene - Damon Severson
Yohann Auvitu - Ben Lovejoy
Kyle Quincey - John Moore

Cory Schneider
Keith Kinkaid

Should be an exciting matchup, as the Hurricanes will see New Jersey’s ace goaltender this time around, and they’ll also look to contain Cammalleri, who dropped a hat trick on them on Sunday.
