Projected lines for Hurricanes, Rangers
NEW YORK -- The Carolina Hurricanes shook up their lines at practice Thursday in the hopes of finding something that would end their three-game losing streak. Meanwhile, the New York Rangers have one sure thing line with Derek Stepan centering Marian Gaborik and Artem Anisimov, but coach John Tortorella was constantly shuffling his lines during Wednesday's win in Ottawa.

This is likely what the lines for each team will look like when the game starts Friday:

Tuomo Ruutu - Jeff Skinner - Jussi Jokinen
Jiri Tlusty - Brandon Sutter - Chad LaRose
Zac Dalpe - Tim Brent - Anthony Stewart

Joni Pitkanen - Jamie McBain
Bryan Allen - Tim Gleason
Tomas Kaberle - Jay Harrison

Cam Ward
Brian Boucher

RANGERS
Artem Anisimov - Derek Stepan - Marian Gaborik
Brandon Dubinsky - Brad Richards - Brandon Prust
Ruslan Fedotenko - Brian Boyle - Ryan Callahan
Sean Avery - Erik Christensen - Andre Deveaux

Ryan McDonagh - Dan Girardi
Michael Del Zotto - Michael Sauer
Jeff Woywitka - Steve Eminger

Henrik Lundqvist
Martin Biron
Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
