That's ok, the season's still fresh, game #2 tonight.

The Hurricanes have lost the two games they have played so far, to the Flyers and the Bruins respectively. They also lost Eric Cole four to six weeks to a fracture in his lower left leg from a collision in the Bruins game with Wideman. They have also re-signed Cam Ward to a 6 year extension, who with a large contract, like Luongo, are doing a good job at playing themselves off of Team Canada.
With Eric Cole out, Tuomo Ruutu has been skating in his spot to be Eric Staal's winger. Ruutu was Staal's winger last year, so this won't be that much of an adjustment. Tim Conboy will come up to play in Ruutu's spot.
The Lightning need to improve on the number of goals let in per game and for that Mike Smith really has to show up ready to play tonight.
Game time 7pm ET.
