Peters to get start for Canes, Welsh recalled

Posted March 7, 2013

Justin Peters will seek his second win in as many tries since being recalled from Charlotte as he was named the starter Thursday against Montreal with Dan Ellis still battling the flu.

Peters, who was recalled to replace the injured Cam Ward, stopped 37 shots in a 4-3 win over Buffalo Tuesday. He is 12-11-3 in his career and 1-0-0 on the year.

Carey Price will start in goal for Montreal. The Canadiens are 14-5-4 on the year and sit atop the Eastern Conference with 32 points.   Carolina Hurricanes Logo Carolina Hurricanes schedule

Like Ellis, Riley Nash is also battling the flu and was sent home from morning skate. Head coach Kirk Muller said that the rookie who has one goal in eight games will be a game-time decision. 

Meanwhile, Tim Brent skated on Thursday along with Brett Sutter and Kevin Westgarth but was later placed on injured reserve retroactive Feb. 28. In a corresponding move, the Canes recalled Jeremy Welsh.

Welsh will make his third trip to the big club this season having skated in four games in his previous two stints. 

Muller also used the morning skate Thursday to jumble some lines. Jussi Jokinen, who has three goals in his last three games, was working out as the center flanked by Tim Wallace and Drayson Bowman.

The top line of Eric Staal, Alex Semin and Jiri Tlusty will be unchanged.

Carolina has killed off 24 of their last 26 short-handed situations. Jokinen and defenseman Jay Harrison said Thursday that their effective kill is two-fold. One, they are taking fewer penalties, and two, the special teams unit is communicating well.

    I was just reading up on the Habs and I see they traded Cole???? I hadn't heard that! Geeze. I still have hope he'll find his way back to the Canes roster.

    I wish, edits! The Islanders may have beaten the Canadiens, but they're on top of the eastern conference. Beating them would be sweet! As much as I'll always like Cole, and he'll always be a Cane to me, I'd like to see the Canes beat them.

    From what I've read, this was some kind of stomach virus, not actual influenza (which is what a flu shot protects you from). It's lazy, but "flu" gets used in a generic sense when talking about sports injuries. Whatever kind of bug it is, I sure hope it doesn't ransack the locker room like these things sometimes do.

    Bring It! Eh!

    Welsh needs to prove something if he plays tonight. No time to keep losing guys to the flu or injury. This team has to stay healthy, there is noone on the AHL team to bring up who is a playmaker, that is sad to say (that seems to be a direct reflection of poor scouting). Dalphe turning out to be nothing they thought he was when drafted and in the system for years. Look at Boychuk, traded again the other day (in our system for years, high draft pick and nothing to show for it)

    The puck was in their end of the ice for approximately 40 out fo the 60 minutes played, especially the first 20. Buffalo could not buy a puck into our end of the ice. Not sure what exactly you are referring to. Also, our defense has looked good because they have been good. If the Islanders can beat the Canadiens, the Canes can beat the Candiens.

    I sure hope the twig work that was on display against Buffalo is as prominent tonight as well. GO CANES!!!

    Dont count the Canes out yet. This is the kids big chance to shine. If everyone is playing the best we could win this one.

    You can get a flu shot and still get the flu.

  • hpr641 Mar 7, 2:25 p.m.

    "... with Dan Ellis still battling the flu." Not to say he did or didn't get a flu shot, but with all their travel and the literally 100's of thousands of people that athletes are exposed to, why don't they all get a flu shot?

  • 6Pack Mar 7, 1:45 p.m.

    In this current streak, our defense has looked good mainly because we've kept the puck in their end of the ice. Tuesday showed a different story when the puck stayed in our end. We can survive a Buffalo offense, but not a Montreal offense. Buffalo just tried to put the puck on net, Montreal shoots at targets. We better have our defense in top form for this game.
