Potential lineups for Bruins, Hurricanes
Here are what tonight's lineups for the Bruins and Hurricanes could look like, based on this morning's skates.

BRUINS
Milan Lucic - Tyler Seguin - Nathan Horton
Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - Rich Peverley
Jordan Caron - Chris Kelly - Benoit Pouliot
Daniel Paille - Gregory Campbell - Shawn Thornton

Zdeno Chara - Johnny Boychuk
Dennis Seidenberg - Joe Corvo
Andrew Ference - Matt Bartkowski

Tuukka Rask was the first goalie off the ice this morning, meaning he'll be the starter. Tim Thomas will be the backup.

Adam McQuaid (neck) will be a game-time decision. If he plays, he'll play on the third pairing, likely in place of Bartkowski.

HURRICANES
Alexei Ponikarovsky - Eric Staal - Tuomo Ruutu
Jiri Tlusty - Brandon Sutter - Patrick Dwyer
Jussi Jokinen - Jeff Skinner - Chad LaRose
Brendon Sutter - Tim Brent - Anthony Stewart

Joni Pitkanen - Jamie McBain
Jay Harrison - Tomas Kaberle

Cam Ward will start in goal, with Brian Boucher the backup.
