Game 26: Carolina Hurricanes (15-9-1) vs. Washington Capitals (10-14-1)

Recommended Posts

After dominating the Capitals a few nights ago, the Canes return home in hopes of doing it again. The Canes will look to keep rolling and it gets better, both Tuomo Ruutu and Joni Pitkanen skated today and both are getting closer and closer to returning.

The Canes will go with the following line-up...

Jiri Tlusty - Eric Staal - Alexander Semin

Jeff Skinner - Jordan Staal - Jussi Jokinen

Drayson Bowman - Riley Nash - Patrick Dwyer

Chris Terry - Tim Brent - Tim Wallace

Jay Harrison - Justin Faulk

Tim Gleason - Joe Corvo

Bobby Sanguinetti - Jamie McBain

Dan Ellis

Justin Peters

Inactive: Kevin Westgarth

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

The Capitals look like they are going to be going with Michael Neuvirth in goal who has an abysmal 1-4-1 record this year. The Caps will be without Brooks Laich, Tom Poti, John Erskine, Mike Green, and Jack Hillen.
