Off to one of the hottest starts in the National Hockey League, the Carolina Hurricanes are now a win away from their best start in franchise history.
Julien Gauthier will make his NHL debut when the Hurricanes host the Islanders in the front half of a back-to-back set.
Here is the projected lineup for the Hurricanes.
Scratches: Martinook (core muscle), van Riemsdyk (shoulder; injured non-roster)
