Projected lineup: Round 2, Game 1 in New York

New York – After winning four of five games in the first round against the New York Islanders, the Carolina Hurricanes are expected to advance Frederick Andersen Back when they start their series versus the New York Rangers today.

The veteran goaltender allowed just 12 goals in five games and produced a .912 save percentage as the Canes began 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.

Ahead of their crease, the team will not make any changes to its skater lineup.

Jesper Fast (upper body injury) is still likely to miss the entire postseason, and Brett Pesce (lower body injury) has been ruled out for at least Games 1 and 2.
