With unfavorable weather conditions in Raleigh on Thursday night, the Sharks were forced to fly in Friday morning for this evening's game. As a result, they did not have a morning skate.
Based on Thursday night's lineup in Tampa Bay, this a possible lineup for Friday night's game against Carolina. However, forward Dominic Moore, acquired from Tampa Bay before Thursday night's game, is likely to make his debut with the Sharks.
Justin Peters will start in goal for the Hurricanes, making his first start since losing at Nashville, 5-2, on Jan. 7. It will mark Peters' first home start of the season.
Hurricanes coach Kirk Muller said goaltender Cam Ward is getting an extra day off to rest a "tweak" -- but nothing more serious than that. Ward took the morning skate with Carolina and will serve as the backup.
I don't think today was my most solid game that I've had, some rebounds here and there. I know there's a lot of work to do, not every game is going to go as good as these last few. I've just got to make sure I keep working and keep trying to get better.
