What: Carolina Hurricanes vs. New York Islanders
Where: PNC Arena (Raleigh, North Carolina)
When: 7:00 P.M.

The Canes are coming off of an emotional win as Manny Malhotra scored the game winning goal against Philadelphia in OT. Malhotra suffered a serious eye injury awhile back when he was with Vancouver, but he has fought his way back up to the NHL and has been a breath of fresh air for this Canes team.

As far as the game goes, the Canes can get right back in the playoff picture with a win tonight over the Islanders.

Line Up's

Jiri Tlusty - Eric Staal - Alexander Semin
Nathan Gerbe - Jordan Staal - Tuomo Ruutu
Chris Terry - Riley Nash - Patrick Dwyer
Drayson Bowman - Manny Malhotra - Radek Dvorak

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

Justin Peters
Mike Murphy
