NASHVILLE - The Carolina Hurricanes square off with the host Nashville Predators in the final game of the 2019 NHL Prospects Showcase.

The Hurricanes are coming off a 7-4 win against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday, while the Predators have won their first two games of the Showcase.

"I thought our compete was good. I thought our desperation was better," head coach Ryan Warsofsky said after the second game. "We'll look to get better again. Every time we're in that room or on the ice, we have a chance to get better."

The Hurricanes' lineup for Tuesday's 2 p.m. ET puck drop largely resembles what they iced in the first two games. The biggest adjustment is on the back-end, as Jake Bean, a late roster addition and also the team's best player in the Showcase, flew back to Raleigh on Saturday. (Don't worry, he's not injured.)

In Bean's absence, Jesper Sellgren assumes top-pairing duties alongside invite Kaleb Bulych. Chase Priskie pairs with invite Noel Hoefenmayer. Jeremy Helvig will make his second start in net.
