Projected lineups for Hurricanes, Senators
Here's how the lines could look tonight when the Carolina Hurricanes play host to the Ottawa Senators at the RBC Center:

HURRICANES
Drayson Bowman - Eric Staal - Chad LaRose
Alexei Ponikarovsky - Jussi Jokinen - Tuomo Ruutu
Jiri Tlusty - Brandon Sutter - Patrick Dwyer
Andreas Nodl - Riley Nash/Tim Brent - Anthony Stewart

Tim Gleason - Jamie McBain
Jaroslav Spacek - Bryan Allen
Jay Harrison - Justin Faulk

Cam Ward
Justin Peters

SENATORS
Colin Greening - Jason Spezza - Daniel Alfredsson
Nick Foligno - Kyle Turris - Erik Condra
Kaspars Daugavins - Zack Smith - Chris Neil
Matt Carkner - Zenon Konopka - Bobby Butler

Erik Karlsson - Filip Kuba
Chris Phillips - Sergei Gonchar
Jared Cowen - Brian Lee

The Senators arrived in Raleigh overnight and didn't have a morning skate or media availability, but it's possible Alex Auld gets the start after Craig Anderson played Thursday against Florida.
Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
