GAME NIGHT

The Carolina Hurricanes begin their 41-game home schedule Saturday against defending Stanley Cup champion New Jersey at 7 p.m. at the RBC Center. This marks the second time the Hurricanes have faced New Jersey in Raleigh on Opening Night, the first meeting coming on Oct. 29, 1999, the first NHL game at the RBC Center. Neither New Jersey nor Carolina were victorious in their 2003-04 season-openers, as the Devils skated to a 3-3 tie against Boston on Wednesday, and the Hurricanes fell 3-1 at Florida on Thursday.

CAROLINA NOTES
Saturday’s game will mark defenseman Bret Hedican’s 100th game with the Carolina Hurricanes. Hedican was acquired from Florida on Jan. 16, 2002, the same trade that brought center Kevyn Adams and defenseman Tomas Malec to Carolina.

The Carolina Hurricanes acquired forward Marty Murray in a 2003 draft-day deal with Philadelphia. Murray primarily played on the Hurricanes energy line with Kevyn Adams and Craig Adams during the preseason, but, in his regular-season Carolina debut on Oct. 9, centered wingers Jesse Boulerice and Jaroslav Svoboda against Florida. During the preseason, on Sept. 26 against Atlanta, the “Adams family” showed not only its ability to eat up minutes in the other team’s end, but demonstrated Murray’s offensive abilities. Murray banged two pucks past netminder Pasi Nurminen in Carolina’s 5-1 win, and added a power-play goal at Washington on Oct. 3 when he beat Olie Kolzig late in the third period to break up the shutout.

CAROLINA AT HOME: 0-0-0-0
CAROLINA ON THE ROAD: 0-1-0-0
CAROLINA ON THE POWER PLAY: 0-of-4 (0.0%)

CAROLINA INJURY UPDATE

CAROLINA / DEVILS NOTES
The Hurricanes and the Devils meet for their first of four match ups during the 2003-04 regular season. The teams will meet twice at Continental Airlines Arena, first on Jan. 21 and again on Feb. 14, before wrapping the season series in Raleigh on March 6.

The Devils and Hurricanes split their four-game, 2002-03 regular-season series, each team winning once and losing once at home. The Hurricanes were led by Jeff O’Neill, who recorded four points (2g, 2a) against New Jersey in the four-game series. Carolina posts a 33-39-12-1 all-time mark against the New Jersey franchise, including a 18-16-8-0 home record and a 15-23-4-1 road record.
