Game 24: Carolina Hurricanes (13-9-1) vs. New Jersey Devils (11-8-5)

30 posts in this topic

Tonight the Canes are at home as they take on the New Jersey Devils in what will be the halfway point of the season for the Canes. The Canes are still leading the South East Division with a slim two point margin over the Winnipeg Jets. A win tonight would be huge as the Canes look to get back on track after another lackluster performance against what looks to be their kryptonite (the Montreal Canadians).

The good news for the Canes is that they are the healthiest they have been in a long time with a lot of guys returning tonight. Tim Brent, Riley Nash, and Dan Ellis are all returning to the line-up as where Checkers call-up Chris Terry will make his NHL debut. In other injury news, Joni Pitkanen skated today and it is said that Tuomo Ruutu could begin skating again as soon as March 15th.

The line-up's are as follows...

Jiri Tlusty - Eric Staal - Alexander Semin

Jeff Skinner - Jordan Staal - Jussi Jokinen

Chris Terry - Riley Nash - Patrick Dwyer

Drayson Bowman - Tim Brent - Tim Wallace

Jay Harrison - Justin Faulk

Tim Gleason - Joe Corvo

Bobby Sanguinetti - Jamie McBain

Dan Ellis

Justin Peters

Inactive: Kevin Westgarth

Injured: Joni Pitkanen (lower body), Chad LaRose (concussion), Tuomo Ruutu (hip), Cam Ward (MCL)

As far as the Devils are concerned, they will be playing without Marty Brodeur and Dainius Zubrusm and they could also be missing Henrik Tallinder.

News and Notes

  • Chris Terry is making his NHL debut tonight for the Canes
  • The Canes will be dawning camo warmups in honor of Military Appreciation Night
  • This is the first time in 69 games that Cam Ward and Marty Brodeur are not the starting goaltenders when the Canes and Devils face off

Side Note: I will be at the game tonight (Sec104), so I won't be chatting with you guys tonight.

Go CANES!!!

    • Damn does it feel good to be back. Good afternoon ladies and gents and welcome to the draft menu thread! Despite our fearless leader's newly found hippy veganism (just kidding don't ban) some of us still want to talk about meat, cheese and good old fashioned carbs. I'm starting the thread a couple of days early to give people ideas on what to cook! I know some of us will be out and about at a bar and you're still encouraged to let us know what you plan on eating. But I know some of you will be breaking out the smoker/grill for this occasion and my mouth is watering at that thought.   I'm still undecided on what I'll be eating since it's going to be a late night for me and I'm not sure if I'll even be able to watch the draft. Just in case I'll be scanning through this thread for ideas. (I'll include some below).   So let's see what you've got planned Huddle and as always..... PICS ARE ENCOURAGED.   DISCLAIMER: Don't forget to post what you'll be drinking.
