The Hurricanes take the ice Tuesday night against the Vancouver Canucks before heading out on the road for the remainder of the week. After getting off to their best three-game start since moving to Raleigh, the Canes will venture outside the Metropolitan Division for the first time this season.
It appears that Curtis McElhinney will claim the net for Carolina on Tuesday, while Haydn Fleury is expected to join the lineup for the first time this season.

Valentin Zykov will watch from the press box for the second time this season, while Trevor van Riemsdyk gets his first healthy scratch of the year. The Canes will look to continue their winning ways with the following lineup:
Micheal Ferland - Sebastian Aho - Teuvo Teravainen
Warren Foegele - Jordan Staal - Justin Williams
Brock McGinn - Martin Necas - Phil Di Giuseppe
Jordan Martinook - Lucas Wallmark - Andrei Svechnikov
Jaccob Slavin - Dougie Hamilton
Calvin de Haan - Justin Faulk
Haydn Fleury - Brett Pesce
The Vancouver Canucks play their first non-Flames opponent of the season as they begin a Southeastern swing in Raleigh. Jacob Markstrom will remain in net, while Tyler Motte and Michael Del Zotto have drawn out of the lineup in favor of former Bruin Tim Schaller and Ben Hutton. No word yet on if the changes are due to violation of the Canucks’ strict “No Fortnite” policy.
