FRIDAY'S GAME
The Carolina Hurricanes complete a three-game road trip with a noon match-up against the Boston Bruins at TD Banknorth Garden, the first of four meetings between the Bruins and Hurricanes this season.

Friday afternoon's game marks Carolina's 15th road game of the 2006-07 season, and is part of a stretch in which the Hurricanes play seven of 10 games on the road.

CAROLINA NOTES
Hurricanes netminder John Grahame stopped 44 shots in Wednesday night's loss against the New York Islanders, the most saves for a Carolina netminder since Martin Gerber made 45 saves in a 3-2 win against the Ottawa Senators on Oct. 24, 2005 at the RBC Center. The franchise record for saves in a game was set by Mike Veisor on Nov. 2, 1982 in a 7-6 Hartford loss against the Minnesota North Stars.
