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 today's game. That's one of the things you have to deal with when you're a championship team. Guys are going to earn more money based on their performance and what they've achieved, [and] deservedly so. [Saad] falls into that category.
