Carolina Hurricanes (1-0) vs. New York Rangers (0-1)
The Hurricanes will stick to a simple mantra tonight as they look to take a 2-0 series lead on the Rangers and win their sixth straight home game to start the postseason in game 2 of the second round: If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
The Canes will stick with the same lines that sparked their comeback in Wednesday’s third period, with Antti Raanta making his sixth straight start in net.
Here’s how Carolina will line up for this one:
Teuvo Teravainen - Sebastian Aho - Seth Jarvis
Andrei Svechnikov - Vincent Trocheck - Martin Necas
Nino Niederreiter - Jordan Staal - Jesper Fast
Steven Lorentz - Jesperi Kotkaniemi - Max Domi
Jaccob Slavin - Tony DeAngelo
Brady Skjei - Brett Pesce
Ian Cole - Brendan Smith
Injuries: Frederik Andersen, Jordan Martinook
Scratches: Ethan Bear, Derek Stepan
The Rangers held a limited morning skate today, so it’s unknown if they’ll be making any changes tonight.
