Expected lineup: Round 2, Game 1 at NYR

NEW YORK – After winning four of five games in Round 1 against the New York Islanders, the Carolina Hurricanes are expected to join Frederick Andersen again as they begin their series against the New York Rangers today.

The veteran netminder allowed just 12 goals in five games and produced a .912 save percentage as the Canes began their playoff run. When Carolina and the Rangers met in the playoffs two years ago, Andersen did not play because of a lower-body injury he suffered during the regular season.

For their crease, the team will not make any changes to their lineup of skaters.

Jesper Fast (upper-body injury) will likely be out for the entire postseason and Brett Pesce (lower-body injury) has been ruled out for at least Games 1 and 2.
