RALEIGH, N.C. --
After sitting out deadline day, the Hurricanes will ice their regular lineup -- one that is still missing several injured players. But Cam Ward
will return to the net for Carolina, after missing four starts with a lower-body injury.
The Hurricanes have filled out the roster with several of their American Hockey League prospects, including Zach Boychuk
, who was called up Tuesday. Against Nashville, Kirk Muller
will skate eight forwards who are 25 years old or younger.
"They're capable of beating anyone when they play a good, honest game," Muller said. "This is our group. There's no cavalry coming. This is who who we are, and we've got to push and see what happens from here on in."
The Predators, coming off Monday night's 2-1 win over Los Angeles, were unable to travel after the game due to foggy weather conditions. When they arrive on Tuesday, they will have two new deadline acquistions in the lineup. Andrei Kostitsyn
-- the older brother of Nashville forward Sergei Kostitsyn
-- joins the Predators from Montreal, while Paul Gaustad
comes over from Buffalo.
