Carolina Hurricanes vs San Jose Sharks: Rosters and Game Discussion

New, comments

The Hurricanes will once again search for consistency, on a day where the action on the ice plays second fiddle to boardroom intrigue.

While parts are moving off the ice in terms of management, the players on the ice will once again look for consistency tonight against the San Jose Sharks. The Hurricanes are fresh off being shut out by the Vancouver Canucks and head coach Bill Peters has jumbled his lines as a result.

While the Hurricanes continue to soul search, the Sharks sit comfortably in a wild card spot, thanks in part to an elite penalty kill that ranks second in the league. However, San Jose is just 7-6-1 at home. It will be tough for an offense-starved team like the Canes to grab two points against the team allowing the fewest number of goals in the league.

Here are tonight’s lines:

Jeff Skinner - Jordan Staal - Justin Williams

Sebastian Aho - Derek Ryan - Teuvo Teravainen

Brock McGinn - Victor Rask - Elias Lindholm

Joakim Nordstrom - Marcus Kruger - Phil Di Giuseppe

Jaccob Slavin - Brett Pesce

Klas Dahlbeck - Justin Faulk

Noah Hanifin - Trevor van Riemsdyk

Cam Ward

Scott Darling


And for the Sharks:

Timo Meier - Joe Thornton - Joe Pavelski

Melker Karlsson - Logan Couture - Tomas Hertl

Jannik Hansen - Chris Tierney - Kevin Labanc

Marcus Sorenson - Barclay Goodrow - Joel Ward

Paul Martin - Brent Burns

Marc-Edouard Vlasic - Justin Braun

Joakim Ryan - Dylan Demelo
