Tough keeping score these days with all the freak injuries and their associated callups from Rochester, but we'll try to clear it up: Dmitry Kulikov (neck), Gregory Campbell (upper body) appear to be a go. Bryan Allen (precautionary; will sit tonight) is covered by Jason Garrison. Kamil Kreps is out after involuntarily melding with the bench door on Wednesday.
Carolina's not in much better shape: reportedly they are still without Tim Gleason, Chad LaRose, Niclas Wallin, Erik Cole, Mike Ryan, and Joe Corvo.
But that Staal kid is in. Always welcome news in these here parts.
The clubs each have a home victory after completing the first two games of the season series, with the Cats winning 3-0 on November 4th.
All the usual excellence on everything Carolina is up at Canes Country, and I do recommend a visit. Thanks for coming out. Go Cats.
Oh, and talk about mixed emotions:
