The Carolina Hurricanes look to right the ship in a Thursday night matchup with the Edmonton Oilers.

The Carolina Hurricanes have not had a great past two games and need a much stronger effort tonight as they take on the Edmonton Oilers.

The Canes did not have a morning skate today, but it’s safe to assume that Pyotr Kochetkov could be getting his first start of the season after Antti Raanta played last night. Kochetkov is currently an emergency callup after Andersen left practice on Tuesday with an undisclosed injury.

We can also assume that Calvin de Haan will draw back in for Dylan Coghlan tonight after the latter had a less than stellar performance defensively last night.

One bright spot from last game was Jack Drury, who should be getting a chance to center the fourth line again tonight.

Teuvo Teravainen — Sebastian Aho — Seth Jarvis
Andrei Svechnikov — Jesperi Kotkaniemi — Martin Necas
