From Raleigh ...

- Gerber will be in net barring something wierd, and he's coming off probably his second best outing of the year.

- Carolina will REALLY miss Aaron Ward. He's been the Canes most physical defenseman all season and has arguably been their best over-all D-man. His absence does mean that former Pred Andy Hutchinson will be playing in a top 6 role for only the second time all season. Carolina has been using Hutch primarily on the power play as a 7th defenseman.

- Eric Cole is red hot, as Ray Whitney and Matt Cullen have been on their best form of late. Watch out for Staal, he's been slowed by a knee injury but started to show signs of getting his wheels back in Carolina's last game.
