Projected Lineup: Round 2, Game 1 at NYR

NEW YORK – After winning four out of five games in Round 1 against the New York Islanders, the Carolina Hurricanes are expected to go with Frederik Andersen again as they start their series versus the New York Rangers today.

The veteran netminder allowed just 12 goals in five games and produced a .912 save percentage as the Canes kicked off their playoff run. When Carolina and the Rangers met in the playoffs two years ago, Andersen did not play due to a lower-body injury suffered during the regular season.

In front of their crease, the team will not make any changes to their lineup of skaters.

Jesper Fast (upper-body injury) remains likely to be out for the entire postseason and Brett Pesce (lower-body injury) has been ruled out for at least Games 1 & 2.
