RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -Carolina Hurricanes forward Tuomo Ruutu has tested himself in a pregame skate but remains uncertain for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals against Pittsburgh.

Coach Paul Maurice said the team planned to check Ruutu for swelling and wouldn't decide on his status until closer to the start of Saturday night's game. The physical forward missed Game 2 because of an injury to his lower body in Game 1.

The Penguins lead the series 2-0.
