The Carolina Hurricanes will scratch Klas Dahlbeck tonight against the Buffalo Sabres.

Dahlbeck has appeared in only three games this season and will be scratched for the seventh straight game. He has no fantasy relevance. Josh Jooris will also be scratched.

Confirming a previous report, Scott Darling will be in goal tonight when the Carolina Hurricanes play the Buffalo Sabres.

Darling will be looking to rebound after allowing five goals on 35 shots in a 6-4 loss to the New York Islanders on Thursday night. He sports a 5-4-4 record with a 2.57 goals against average and a .905 save percentage.
Nov 18 - 6:03 PM

Josh Jooris is out Saturday due to a lower-body injury.

Jooris missed Friday's practice and while Hurricanes coach Bill Peters previously suggested that it was a maintenance day, this ailment might have been the cause. Jooris has two goals and four points in 13 games this season.
Nov 18 - 12:54 PM

Marcus Kruger (flu) will draw back into the Hurricanes' lineup on Saturday.

Kruger wasn't able to play on Thursday. He's projected to play on the fourth line now that he's healthy.
Nov 18 - 12:52 PM

Josh Jooris did not participate in the Hurricanes' practice Friday morning.

Carolina coach Bill Peters indicated it was just a maintenance day for Jooris, but the fourth-line winger could be dealing with some type of undisclosed injury. Don't be surprised if Jooris doesn't suit up Saturday evening against Buffalo.
Nov 18 - 9:03 AM

Marcus Kruger was back at practice Friday morning with his Hurricane teammates.

He missed Thursday night's game with the flu. There is a very good chance Kruger will be available for Saturday night's contest against the Sabres. If you need him, get ready to activate him.
Nov 18 - 8:59 AM

Although we have listed Scott Darling as the probable starter for Saturday night's game against the Sabres, don't be too surprised if Cam Ward gets the start.

He has a terrific record against Buffalo. Ward went 3-0 against the Sabres last season kicking out 81 of 85 shots. Combined with Darling's poor effort against the Islanders Thursday night, Ward has a real chance to get the call Saturday evening against the Sabres.
Nov 18 - 8:56 AM

The line of Jordan Staal, Teuvo Teravainen and Sebastien Aho has been red hot the last five games.

Over that span, the unit has combined for seven goals and 22 points to fuel the Canes to a 3-1-1 record. Staal has two goals and six assists, Teravianen has three goals and five assists and Aho has two goals and four helpers over that period. Needless to say, if you have a member of this unit on your fantasy squad, he should be active in your lineup.

Scott Darling is the Hurricanes' probable starting goalie Saturday night against Buffalo.

If he gets the call, he will be looking to redeem himself after a very poor effort Thursday night against the Islanders in which he allowed five goals on 35 shots in a 6-4 loss. For the season, Darling sports a 5-4-4 record with a 2.57 goals against average and a .905 save percentage.
Nov 18 - 8:44 AM

Scott Darling stopped 30 of 35 shots in a 6-4 loss over the New York Islanders.

Not the best game for Darling who put his team in a 3-1 hole after allowing three first period goals. The Hurricanes were able to battle back and make a game of it but still ended up coming up short. The loss drops Darling's record to 5-4-4 on the year.
Nov 16 - 9:47 PM

Sebastian Aho picked up a goal and assist in a 6-4 loss to the New York Islanders on Thursday.

Staal, Teravainen and Aho combined beautifully to set up Aho's second goal of the season. After going 15 games without a goal, Aho now has goals in back-to-back games, and has brought his point total up to 13 in 17 games this season. The talented Finn is a must own in fantasy circles.
Nov 16 - 9:44 PM

Klas Dahlbeck will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Islanders.

Dahlbeck has no points in three games this season. He's been scratched in six consecutive games. Marcus Kruger (illness) is also out.

Nov 16 - 6:51 PM

Scott Darling will play between the pipes Thursday night.

Darling is coming off a 5-1 win over Dallas on Monday. He has a 5-3-4 record, 2.37 GAA, and .911 save percentage in 12 games this season.
Nov 16 - 4:59 PM

Marcus Kruger is dealing with the flu.

Kruger is questionable on Thursday as a result. He has an assist in 16 games this season.
