The Carolina Hurricanes look to finish up a road trip on the right foot as they take on the Dallas Stars on Saturday. The Hurricanes are fresh off a 2-1 win over Calgary and look to keep the momentum going. After a rough start, the Stars have won three games in a row heading into their match-up with the ‘Canes.
The Hurricanes haven’t won in Dallas in three seasons and are looking to turn that around. They’ll be led by Jeff Skinner who scored a rocket to put the ‘Canes up 1-0 on Thursday. He is second on the team in points through five games. Bill Peters is rolling with the same lineup tonight as the one that beat the Flames two nights ago.
Here’s what Peters had to say after the morning skate, and here’s how the Hurricanes will shape up:
Teuvo Teravainen - Jordan Staal - Justin Williams
Sebastian Aho - Victor Rask - Elias Lindholm
Jeff Skinner - Derek Ryan - Brock McGinn
Joakim Nordstrom - Marcus Kruger - Josh Jooris
Jaccob Slavin - Brett Pesce
Noah Hanifin - Justin Faulk
Trevor van Riemsdyk - Haydn Fleury
Scratches: Janne Kuokkanen (healthy), Martin Necas (healthy), Klas Dahlbeck (healthy), Lee Stempniak (IR upper-body)
The Dallas Stars are led by the 1-2 punch of Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn. Recent addition goaltender Ben Bishop has settled in to the net after a rocky start and has earned all four of the Stars’ victories. They have a balanced lineup and may be the team to beat in the Central Division.
Here is how the Stars will shape up tonight:
Jamie Benn - Tyler Seguin - Alex Radulov
Devin Shore - Mattias Janmark - Jason Spezza
Remi Elie - Martin Hanzal - Brett Ritchie
Antoine Roussel - Radek Faksa - Tyler Pitlick
Marc Methot - John Klingberg
Dan Hamhuis - Stephen Johns
Esa Lindell - Julius Honka
Scratches: Jamie Oleksiak, Greg Pateryn, Gemel Smith (all healthy)
