Welcome back to PNC Arena, Canes fans!

The Hurricanes are back in action tonight as they take on the Lightning for the second night in a row. They will be trying to build on a dominant 3-0 win over the Lightning with contributions from both current players and prospects alike.

Tonight’s game will be their first in PNC and the first time we’ll see the beautiful new video board in action.

Another couple of logistical changes to keep in mind for tonight’s game... Please be advised of PNC Arena’s new clear bag policy, which you can read about here, and the new mobile ticketing process, which we talked about here.


Newcomers Ryan Dzingel, Erik Haula and Jake Gardiner are all expected to make their debuts tonight in front of the home crowd. Here’s how the Hurricanes are scheduled to line up tonight:

Ryan Dzingel- Sebastian Aho- Nino Niederreiter
Warren Foegele- Erik Haula- Martin Necas
Andrei Svechnikov- Jordan Staal- Teuvo Teravainen
Steven Lorentz- Clark Bishop- Julien Gauthier

Fredrik Claesson- Gustav Forsling
Jaccob Slavin- Dougie Hamilton
Jake Gardiner- Justin Faulk

Petr Mrazek
Alex Nedeljkovic


And here’s how the Lightning will look:
