Coming off a 3-1 home stand, the Carolina Hurricanes (9-4-1, 19 points) will travel to the Wells Fargo Center Tuesday night for a Metropolitan Division battle with the Philadelphia Flyers (6-5-2, 14 points).
The Canes dropped a 5-3 game to the New Jersey Devils Saturday, ending the home stand on a sour note in the second game of a back-to-back. It’ll be a short one-game road trip for Carolina, who will return back to PNC Arena later in the week.
Forward Andrei Svechnikov will lead the Canes into Philly on a four-game point streak, as the young winger picked up an assist against the Devils. Forward Erik Haula did not make the trip to Philadelphia, so it looks like defenseman Haydn Fleury will be active and the Canes will skate with 11 forwards and seven defensemen.
Here is a look at what Rod Brind’Amour’s lineup will look like Tuesday night:
Nino Niederreiter - Jordan Staal - Teuvo Teravainen
Andrei Svechnikov - Sebastian Aho - Warren Foegele
Ryan Dzingel - Lucas Wallmark - Martin Necas
Brock McGinn - Brian Gibbons
Jaccob Slavin - Dougie Hamilton
Jake Gardiner - Brett Pesce
Joel Edmundson - Trevor van Riemsdyk
Injuries and Scratches: Erik Haula (upper-body), Jordan Martinook (IR core muscle)
The Flyers have been in a bit of a rough patch lately, as Philadelphia has just three points in its last four games.
Winger Travis Konecny leads the team in assists (8) and points (14), while Oskar Lindblom’s seven goals lead the way for the Flyers. Tuesday will be the first meeting between Philadelphia and Carolina this season, and the first of the month of November.
Alain Vigneault is just over a month into his first season as the Flyers’ head coach. Here is a look at what his lineup will look like Tuesday night:
James van Riemsdyk - Claude Giroux - Joel Farabee
Oskar Lindblom - Sean Couturier - Travis Konecny
Michael Raffl - Kevin Hayes - Jakub Voracek
Carsen Twarynski - German Rubtsov - Tyler Pitlick
Ivan Provorov - Matt Niskanen
Shayne Gostisbehere - Justin Braun
Travis Sanheim - Philippe Myers
