Game Preview

The Carolina Hurricanes, who are currently on a three game winning streak match-up against former Hurricane Erik Cole and the Montreal Canadians (who are on a three game winning streak as well) tonight at the Belle Centre.

Everyone knew coming into this compact 48 game season that injuries would be a common happening, however, they have hit hard this week for the Hurricanes. The Hurricanes are suffering from five key injuries right now, Jeff Skinner (upper body), Tuomo Ruutu (hip), Tim Gleason (lower body), Joni Pitkanen (lower body), and Tim Brent (lower body). The injuries to key members of the Hurricanes have forced them to call-up a number of players which in turn has left the Charlotte Checkers organization in a bind. The Checkers tried to lighten the mood with all the call-ups and injuries by placing Chubby (the Checker's mascot) as their fourth line center on their depth chart today, due to the call-up's of Welsh and Nash.


The Canadians also have a little injury trouble. Starting goaltender Carey Price (Flu) is out, along with Brendan Gallagher and Petteri Nokelainen. Montreal also lists P.K. Subban, Alexei Emelin, and Max Pacioretty as questionable.

The Hurricanes will attempt to find some of that second and third period magic tonight as the Canadians are 7-0-0 when leading after the first period.

The Hurricanes will roll into tonight's contest with the following depth chat...

Jiri Tlusty - Eric Staal - Alexander Semin
Jussi Jokinen - Jordan Staal - Patrick Dwyer
Andreas Nodl - Riley Nash - Chad LaRose
Drayson Bowman - Jeremy Welsh - Tim Wallace

Jay Harrison - Justin Faulk
Jamie McBain - Joe Corvo
Michal Jordan - Bobby Sanguinetti

Cam Ward
Dan Ellis

News and Notes
  • Captain, Eric Staal in on an eleven game point streak, with a point tonight; he will tie his personal record as well as a Hurricanes record.
  • The Hurricanes are sixth in the NHL in scoring, averaging 3.15 goals per game.
GO CANES!!!

Bought a new 50" over the weekend. Psyched to watch the Canes whoop some Canadian ass on in.

Good work by the Bowman, Wallace, Welsh (even though Nash was on the ice) to draw that penalty.

Overall good period by the Canes tonight. Semin and McBain struggling but E. Staal and Harrison have brought their A game.

Habs dominated 18 minutes of play in the second, then the Canes found life in the last two minutes. I expect the Canes to play like they did the last two minutes in the second.

The Staal brothers and Harrison are having solid games. Hopefully we can steal this one from Mtl.

That could do it, the Canes haven't had many scoring chances.
