Here are the projected lineups for Sunday’s game between the Carolina Hurricanes and Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place. Due to 5 p.m. start, both teams elected not to skate today.

Craig Anderson will get the start, with Alex Auld serving as backup.

On Sunday morning, Nikita Filatov was recalled from Binghamton, while Stephane Da Costa was reassigned to the AHL club. Coach Paul MacLean confirmed that David Rundblad would be returning to the lineup, after sitting for the last five games. Brian Lee is the healthy scratch.

Chris Neil, who injured his ankle against the New York Rangers on Nov. 9, skated on his own for 20-30 minutes on Thursday. According to MacLean, there will be no timetable for his return until he practices with the team.

Cam Ward is expected to get the start, with Brian Boucher backing him up.

According to Carolina team writer Michael Smith, Jay Harrison, who sustained an upper body injury against Montreal on Wednesday, did not travel with the team. Joni Pitkanen, who injured his lower body against the Rangers on Nov. 11, is listed as probable. He will skate today and then decide if he is ready to go. If Pitkanen returns, expect him to replace Derek Joslin in the lineup.
