Hurricanes likely to use same lineup
The Carolina Hurricanes, coming off Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win in Washington, elected not to skate Wednesday morning in Buffalo ahead of their game at First Niagara Center against the Sabres.

The Hurricanes have a League-low eight road wins, but one was Oct. 14 in Buffalo, ruining the Sabres' home-opener.

Here's the lineup the Hurricanes likely will put on the ice Wednesday:

Anthony Stewart - Eric Staal - Jiri Tlusty
Jeff Skinner - Jussi Jokinen - Chad LaRose
Patrick Dwyer - Brandon Sutter - Andreas Nodl
Derek Joslin - Tim Brent - Jerome Samson

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

Cam Ward will start in goal, with Brian Boucher the backup.

If you missed it earlier, here is the lineup the Sabres likely will use.
Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
