The Hurricanes will go with the same personnel as they did on Thursday. Frederik Andersen will take over starter duties in the crease. In his last outing he earned a win over the Capitals on Tuesday.
The Capitals are still without their captain, Alex Ovechkin, who is in Russia following the passing of his father. They are 1-3 since returning from the All-Star break.
