The Washington Capitals and Carolina Hurricanes square off Wednesday evening. Need a live stream? Start time? Rosters? We’ve got you covered!
The Washington Capitals, fresh off a 3-1 win over the New York Islanders, are set to head on down to Carolina to square off against the Hurricanes. The Capitals enter the match up with a 3-0-1 record. The Hurricanes enter the match up with a 2-2-0 record.
The Caps and Hurricanes are frequent pre-season combatants. Recently, the Capitals have been the ones coming out on top as they are 5-0-1 against them in pre-season games since 2007-2008. Both teams will be trotting out lineups that closely resemble what we shall see throughout the regular season.
Washington Capitals Roster
[table id=125 /]
While the Capitals have 22 players listed, they’ll only be traveling with 20 skaters (13 forwards and 7 defensemen) and two goalies. The Caps have their top six forwards listed. Whether or not we’ll see them together is unknown. Marcus Johansson will likely be with the second line since this is his first pre-season game of the season. Michael Latta also returns to the ice after getting injured last week.
Regardless of who plays, this is pretty darn close to what Caps fans are going to see during the regular season. The only two regulars not listed on the roster are Nicklas Backstrom and Brooks Orpik. Braden Holtby will most likely be the starter and play most of the game, if not all of it.
Carolina Hurricanes Roster
[table id=124 /]
This is pretty close to the roster that the Hurricanes should use during the regular season. Eddie Lack will get the start in goal and is likely going to go the whole game since Cam Ward is expected to start the next day against Pittsburgh.
