The Canes are coming off of a gutsy win on Thursday night, where they pulled off the 3-2 overtime victory and earned their first win of the series.
Carolina was backstopped by Petr Mrazek making his first start since May 10 and the Czech netminder came up big turning aside 35 of the 37 shots he faced to backstop the Hurricanes to the win.
He will be getting the call again tonight as the Canes look to even the series.
Carolina will also more than likely be seeing an additional forward in the lineup for Game 4 as both Vincent Trocheck and now Warren Foegele will be game-time decisions due to injuries.
Hurricanes Projected Lineup
The Canes’ lineup continues to take some major hits now potentially being down a third forward, but the team praises that next man up mentality and if Foegele and Trocheck are unable to go we will more than likely see Morgan Geekie and Max McCormick slot into the lineup.
Here’s how the Hurricanes are projected to hit the ice for Game 4:
Andrei Svechnikov - Sebastian Aho - Teuvo Teravainen
Brock McGinn - Jordan Staal - Martin Necas
Cedric Paquette - Jordan Martinook - Jesper Fast
Max McCormick - Steven Lorentz - Morgan Geekie
Jaccob Slavin - Dougie Hamilton
Jake Bean - Brett Pesce
Brady Skjei - Jani Hakanpaa
Lightning Projected Lineup
No changes are expected for the Tampa Bay Lightning, but defenseman David Savard is trending close to a return so he may find his way back into the lineup sooner rather than later.
Here’s how the Bolts are projected to hit the ice:
Ondrej Palat - Brayden Point - Nikita Kucherov
Alex Killorn - Anthony Cirelli - Steven Stamkos
Barclay Goodrow - Yanni Gourde - Blake Coleman
Ross Colton - Tyler Johnson - Pat Maroon
Victor Hedman - Jan Rutta
Ryan McDonagh - Erik Cernak
Mikhail Sergachev - Luke Schenn
Injuries and Scratches: David Savard (upper body), Spencer Martin, Christopher Gibson, Fredrik Claesson, Andreas Borgman, Mathieu Joseph, Taylor Raddysh, Boris Katchouk, Gemel Smith, Cal Foote, Ben Thomas, Alex Barre-Boulet, Mitchell Stephens, Daniel Walcott
