The Previews: My preview from earlier this morning is right here. For the other side in today's game and your daily allotment of the letter 'C,' please check out this preview by Carolyn Christians at Canes Country.
A Song for the Game? Sure: I can't believe I forgot to do this for the first game. When I typed in "hurricane thrash" into Youtube: the first result was a track called "Heavy Metal Hurricane" from a German band from the 1980s called Living Death. There you go.
Gameday Info: From CC's preview of the CH at CC, she cites this tweet from broadcaster John Forslund that the Canes will be using the same lineup they used against the Capitals except with Cam Ward in net. Those lines are in her preview, so go read that to find out what they are. The two dangermen, Jeff Skinner and Eric Staal are on the same line; but in reading the rest of the post, apparently Paul Maurice likes to mix it up. All the more reason to be aware of what's going on as you watch this game. With the early start time, there's not much else out there at the time of writing. So please check with Tom Gulitti and/or Rich Chere for any pre-game updates.
