What: Carolina Hurricanes vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

Where: PNC Arena (Raleigh, North Carolina)

When: 7:00 P.M.

TV: Fox Sports South

The Canes are at home tonight and somehow, they are still sitting in second place in the Metropolitan Division.

Tonight the Canes will look to snap their three game losing streak against a solid Tampa Bay team.

Tonight isn't a must win, but it's a pretty big game as the Canes really need to pick up some points in the standings with the Islanders, Blue Jackets, Rangers, and Capitals nipping at their heels.

In other news, Manny Malhotra will make his return to the NHL tonight.

Jiri Tlusty - Eric Staal - Alexander Semin

Nathan Gerbe - Jordan Staal - Patrick Dwyer

Until we get Khudobin and Cam back, wins are going to have to be taken by simply scoring more. I like Peters, but the guy just isn't an NHL level goalie.

Few teams have to deal with losing both NHL goalies...let alone this early in the season....let alone 2 years in a row.
