The Anaheim Ducks will try to remain undefeated at home this season when they play the Carolina Hurricanes at Honda Center on Friday.
The Ducks are 3-0-0 at home for the first time since the 2014-15 season, when they won their first four at Honda Center.
The Hurricanes were 6-1-0, their best seven-game start since entering the NHL as the Hartford Whalers in 1979, before losing 5-2 at the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday in the second of their four-game road trip.
Carolina defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk is set to make his season debut after recovering from left-shoulder surgery May 2. The Hurricanes plan to use 11 forwards and seven defensemen.
