Game Thread: Bruins @ Carolina Whalercanes – February 26: First Period

Iron Man Doug Jarvis welcomes you to… The Insurance Capital of the World  uh, Raleigh.

The Bruins head into Carolina for what could very well be a game of lasts: Eric Staal’s last game as a Hurricane, and Loui Eriksson’s last as a Bruin. Both will be unrestricted free agents in July, and the trade deadline is this coming Monday.

The Canes, who are on the second half of a back-to-back, have been mediocre (5-4-1) in their last ten outings. The Bruins, unfortunately, haven’t been much better (6-4-0), but are a strong road team (20-10) for some reason. Tuukka has won two in a row and is going for his third against Cam Ward. I’m glad the Flying Finnish King is in net, because the Monster was abysmal last time he played.

For Carolina, the following men will not be dressing (ooh la la!):
Andrej Nestrasil (lower body), Justin Faulk (lower body) and Jay McClement (upper body).

The Loui Eriksson situation remains a mystery.

A quick note to the opposition:

RED ROVER, RED ROVER, SEND LILES RIGHT OVER!

Doug Jarvis would rather be in Hartford, what about you? And more importantly, what’s on tap?
