Hurricanes to face Devils without defenseman Sekera

Posted November 29, 2013

The Carolina Hurricanes will be without defenseman Andrej Sekera on Friday when they host the New Jersey Devils at PNC Arena (7 p.m., Fox Sports Carolina, 99.9 FM The Fan). 

Sekera, who has 13 points (5 goals, 8 assists) is day-to-day with an upper-body injury. He will replaced Friday by Mike Komisarek. 

Fellow defenseman Tim Gleason and forward Alexander Semin did not participate in Carolina's morning skate Friday. Semin is still out with a concussion, and Gleason is nursing a lower-body issue.

Since being recalled from the Charlotte Checkers, rookie forward Elias Lindholm has helped make  the Canes power play better – although he couldn't quite find the words to describe his role following Friday's skate.

"I don't know, actually," he said when asked how he has helped the power play. 

He did elaborate on what a good power play does: "Keep shooting in the beginning (of the power play) then make some nice plays after that."

Can Ward will be making his fourth consecutive start in goal for the Hurricanes, and Cory Schneider will be starting for New Jersey. The Hurricanes downed New Jersey 4-3 on Wednesday evening.

    I keep hearing about all the Cane's injuries....you gotta be like all the other NHL teams - you have to play with what you got (or what the GM provides). Seems like the Canes resemble 'china dolls' lately.

    Somewhere in the NHL stats someone is keeping track of the team man-games missed (if you knew where to look and find such)...I'm surprised the Cane's color analyst (? - i.e., big mouth - another topic to jabber about instead of letting Forslund describe the play by play - where is Doc Emerick when you need him?) hasn't already been harping on the situation....guess in time, he will if things turn sour.

    Ward needs to be tough for 60 minutes even when they have a lead. Don't know if it's psychological, but I suspect so. Sekera will be missed...another injury. Do other teams have this much problem.
