Canes-Devils play matinee

Today is a federal holiday in the United States, which means weekday matinee games!

There are two matinee games on the docket, and the one I care about is between the surging Carolina Hurricanes and the Atlantic-leading Devils. The Devils have won three of their last four, and Carolina is on a three game winning streak.

Carolina is hoping to take a page out of Pittsburgh's book, and use the injury of their captain as inspiration. So far, the rest of the team has stepped up, but it's just been 1.99 games since Brind'Amour got injured.

The second wave of flu is still hanging around. Joe Corvo, Tim Gleason and now Scott Walker are all feeling its effects. Corvo and Gleason have been in and out of the lineup and there haven't been any callups, so I have to assume that they'll play.

Puck drop is 1:00. Set your DVRs.
