Projected lineups for Canadiens, Hurricanes

Aaron Palushaj - Gabriel Dumont - Brad Staubitz
P.K. Subban - Josh Gorges
Frédéric St-Denis - Andrei Markov
Chris Campoli - Alexei Emelin
Peter Budaj
Robert Mayer

Montreal did not skate Thursday morning, coming off a 5-2 home win over Tampa Bay on Wednesday night.


Jiri Tlusty - Eric Staal - Chad LaRose
Jeff Skinner - Jussi Jokinen - Tuomo Ruutu
Derek Joslin - Brandon Sutter - Patrick Dwyer
Tim Brent - Anthony Stewart
Tim Gleason - Bryan Allen
Jay Harrison - Justin Faulk
Joni Pitkanen - Jamie McBain
Jaroslav Spacek
Cam Ward
Brian Boucher

Carolina forward Andreas Nodl skated with the team Thursday morning, but Hurricanes coach Kirk Muller said he is unlikely to dress. He has missed seven games recovering from a concussion. Instead, Spacek will join the lineup as the seventh defenseman.
Quote of the Day

Jamie improves every game and every year. I've only been with him for two years, but as a player and as a person it seems like every week he's getting stronger and better, and becoming a better leader and better captain. He wants the team to be so successful that he's making himself better as a player.
