Projected lines for Carolina Hurricanes

Bubba from CanesCountry posted up the projected lines for Carolina tonight.  Not much from Pitt just yet on the lines, but I'll post them up soon or in the notes section of tonight's thread.  As Hooks mentioned earlier, Pascal Dupuis is still a consideration for Game One, a decision that is likely pending on Sergei Gonchar's place in the lineup.

Walker-Staal-Whitney
LaRose-Cullen--Cole
Ruutu-Jokinen-Samsonov
Eaves-Brind’Amour-Bayda
 

Pitkanen-Seidenberg
Corvo-Gleason
Wallin-Kaberle

Something interesting to consider - the Hurricanes defensemen have combined for only two goals this entire playoff run (Tim Gleason, Joe Corvo).  That's half of Mark Eaton's total for the playoffs or the same total as Gonchar.  Pittsburgh defense, on the other hand, has ten goals over one less game played than Carolina. 

It kinda makes you wonder: Will the point shot work against Cam Ward?  I think that may even have a subpoint, as in Will Carolina be able to bully Pitt out of the crease?  If so then the Penguins may need to adjust their attack.  But coming right out of the gate tonight I think it's imperative that Pitt go with what's worked so far and then adjust if necessary in G2.
