Following last night’s overtime victory over Dallas, the Hurricanes will look to keep the good times rolling as the Penguins come to town for a key Metro Division tilt.

The Hurricanes won’t hold a morning skate today, but we’ll hear more about the lineup from Rod Brind’Amour later this afternoon. It seems unlikely that, barring injury, he’ll change a winning lineup, with the exception of Pyotr Kochetkov re-entering the net in place of Antti Raanta.

Here’s how the teams project to line up tonight:

Seth Jarvis - Paul Stastny - Martin Necas
Andrei Svechnikov - Jesperi Kotkaniemi - Teuvo Teravainen
Jordan Martinook - Jordan Staal - Jesper Fast
Jack Drury - Derek Stepan - Stefan Noesen

Jaccob Slavin - Brent Burns
Brady Skjei - Brett Pesce
Calvin de Haan - Jalen Chatfield

Pyotr Kochetkov
Frederik Andersen

Injuries: Sebastian Aho (lower body), Frederik Andersen (lower body), Ondrej Kase (concussion), Max Pacioretty (Achilles)
