Samsonov a Late Scratch

by Paul Branecky / Carolina Hurricanes
It appears Sergei Samsonov will miss tonight's game with an upper body injury, which has resulted in a few changes to the Hurricanes' line combinations.  Niclas Wallin, who was expected to miss the game as a healthy scratch, warmed up at forward on a line featuring Ryan Bayda at center and Tim Conboy on the other wing.  He'll likely see ice time on defense as well.
