CHICAGO - The Carolina Hurricanes' four-game road trip concludes tonight in Chicago.

Former Blackhawk Scott Darling is expected to start in net for the Hurricanes, who are likely to make a few additional lineup tweaks heading into tonight's contest.

GAME PREVIEW

Here is the projected lineup for the Hurricanes.

Forwards

Foegele-Staal-Williams
Ferland-Aho-Teravainen
Martinook-Wallmark-Svechnikov
McGinn-Bishop-Di Giuseppe

Defense

van Riemsdyk-Hamilton
Slavin-Pesce
de Haan-Faulk

Goalies

Darling
McElhinney

Scratches: Fleury (healthy), Zykov (healthy), Mrazek (lower body), Rask (hand; injured non-roster)

Note: Lineup subject to change prior to opening faceoff.

After being recalled from Charlotte, both Phil Di Giuseppe and Clark Bishop will draw into the lineup.

"It's nice to have a little change and hopefully a little more energy," head coach Rod Brind'Amour said. "We've been on the road for a week. Desperation time for us, so hopefully those guys can provide a little spark."

The defensive pairs have also been tweaked slightly, and among the changes is the reassembly of the Jaccob Slavin-Brett Pesce duo.

"We know what we're getting out of that pair, for sure," Brind'Amour said.
