What: Carolina Hurricanes @ Toronto Maple Leafs
When: 7:00 P.M.
Where: Air Canada Centre (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)

It's been said that in order to make the playoffs, a team must gain six points in the standings for every five games they play.

The Hurricanes recorded exactly six points in their first five games. However they currently only have one point going into the third game of their second five. In order to keep pace in the standings (mainly with Pittsburgh; who could easily run away with the Metropolitan Division), the Canes need to at least get a point in tonight's game.

It will be difficult for the Canes to get a result tonight as Toronto is one of the hottest teams in the NHL, but Carolina tends to play well against the Leafs.

Here is to a Canes win tonight!!!

Line-Up

Tuomo Ruutu - Eric Staal - Alexander Semin
Nathan Gerbe - Jordan Staal - Jiri Tlusty
Jeff Skinner - Riley Nash - Radek Dvorak
Drayson Bowman - Patrick Dwyer - Kevin Westgarth

Andrej Sekera - Justin Faulk
Brett Bellemore - Ron Hainsey
Jay Harrison - Ryan Murphy

Cam Ward
Justin Peters

Scratched: Brett Sutter, Mike Komisarek
Injured: Elias Lindholm, Tim Gleason, Anton Khudobin, Joni Pitkanen (season ending IR)

What's the timetable for Lindholm's return?

 

Muller said they expect to get Lindholm back against the Islanders (10/19, this Saturday) and expect Gleason to be back (10/24, next Thursday).

 

Muller also said that he expects Komisarek to get some playing time soon, they are just waiting for him to get his confidence back up through practice.

 

Finally, there isn't any new news on Khudobin but a pretty reliable source on a a website I use said that they expect Khudobin to be out two to three weeks. If this info is true, this would put him back at the earliest against the Penguins (10/28, Monday) or at the latest against the Flyers (11/5, Tuesday).

Wardo played really well in the first.  Our second PP got some good pressure.  We look like the better team so far.  Good looking 1st period.

I don't even know if we'll be able to score one goal on Bernier, let alone two.
