The Hurricanes have had to deal with playing a very difficult schedule to start the season, most recently playing a back to back against the Oilers (ok, not THAT strong) and the Blues. Tonight they bring it home to RBC Center, where they have been incredibly good on home ice. Alex Semin left the last game with an injury, so he may not play tonight - that remains to be seen.
The Bruins are coming off a gross loss to the Senators, which is a thing that doesn't happen very often. Hopefully they can bounce back and start winning again. Lines should be the same, and Tuukka Rask should get the start in net.
The Patriots are also playing some Panthers! Here is a link to that preview.
