TORONTO - When the Carolina Hurricanes jump back into postseason action after a week's layoff, they expect to have Dougie Hamilton back in their lineup.

Hamilton has not played since mid-January, when he suffered a broken fibula in his left leg in Columbus. An undisclosed injury prevented him form drawing back in during the Cup Qualifiers, but after practicing with the Canes in the last week, he's set to get back into game action against the Boston Bruins.
