As Coach Paul Maurice indicated yesteday, the game group for tomorrow's game against Atlanta will consist mostly of players still in camp who did not play in Friday's night's exhibition opener.

There are a few exceptions, as Zach Boychuk, Brett Carson, Patrick Dwyer, Jay Harrison, Bryan Rodney, Michael Ryan and Brandon Sutter will suit up for the second consecutive game.  The lineup will be headlined by the Hurricanes' third and fourth forward lines, led by Rod Brind'Amour and Stephane Yelle. 

Also, the Canes' top three forward prospects will play together on the same unit, with Drayson Bowman on the left side of Boychuk and Sutter.  That line could potentially see a lot of minutes.

"We'll play our young group a little bit more than we would in a game," said Maurice.  "Situationally, where you might [otherwise] come back with your number one power play, now you want to see some other guys and give them a chance."

While those three players could possibly stick around for the third preseason game on Friday, tomorrow' game will likely be the last game for a number of players before joining Albany's training camp on Wednesday.  Maurice has indicated that game three will closely resemble the opening night roster.

Michael Leighton gets the start in goal, with Maurice saying that expects to stick with the same goaltender for the entire 60 minutes.  Justin Peters will be the backup.
