Backup Peters in net for 'Canes
PITTSBURGH -- Cam Ward got a win and his first NHL goal last night, but that wasn't enough to earn him the start in the back-half of the Carolina Hurricanes' back-to-back set today against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Instead, it will be backup Justin Peters facing  a Penguins team that has scored 26 goals in its last six games.

Peters, who has spent most of the season with Charlotte (AHL), is 2-0-1 in three career games against Pittsburgh, with a 3.33 goals-against average and a .903 save percentage.
 
The rest of the Hurricanes’ projected lineup:
 
Drayson Bowman - Eric Staal - Chad LaRose
Alexei Ponikarovsky - Jussi Jokinen - Tuomo Ruutu
Jiri Tlusty - Brandon Sutter - Patrick Dwyer
Andreas Nodl - Tim Brent - Anthony Stewart
 
Tim Gleason - Jamie McBain
Bryan Allen - Jay Harrison
Justin Faulk - Jaroslav Spacek

Quote of the Day

I mean, any of those 14 teams (in the lottery) it would have been an absolute honor. If I am selected by Edmonton it will be amazing, a dream come true. They have a lot of amazing young players there.
