GAME: Win and You're In- CANES vs. Lightning

Recommended Posts

I thought we could go ahead and get things started for tonight's game since it may draw some more visitors to the hockey forum (hopefully). As everyone knows, the Rangers won their game today verses the Devils to retake control of the 8th seed in the Eastern Conference Playoffs. However, if the Canes win they will overtake the Rangers and secure the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

The Canes have been on a roll for quite a while as they are 8-1-1 in their last 10 games and the only regulation loss came at the hands of the Lightning in the RBC Center. The Canes are looking for revenge in the biggest fashion possible tonight.

Cam Ward has been superb and Erik Cole, Jeff Skinner, and Eric Staal have the Canes in position to shock the hockey world.

Mike Smith looks to be the choice in goal for the Lightining, defenseman Victor Hedman is doubtful for the Lightning tonight, and defenseman Randy Jones is out for tonight. The only injury for the Canes is Jay Harrison who is still day to day with a lower body injury. However, since this game is essentially meaningless for the Lightning, Boucher may opt to rest some of his veterans. Both teams are coming off of a win last night yet the Lightning's 4-2 victory over the Panthers was a little more difficult than Carolina's 6-1 victory over Atlanta. Look for the Canes to come out hot early with the home crowd behind them.

The Canes should be able to capitalize on the depleted roster of the Lightning and hopefully the Canes can get the win and return to the postseason for the first time since 2009.
