Game pregame notes from North Carolina

05.08.09 at 7:39 pm ET

RALEIGH, NC — A few quick pregame notes:

Shawn Thornton is a healthy scratch for the Boston Bruins, and Byron Bitz is in on the fourth line tonight. Interesting move by coach Claude Julien, as there might have been a different option or two that could have been chosen.

–NC State head coach Sidney Lowe was the¬†guest siren cranker for the Hurricanes prior to the game starting. The NASCAR crowd looks fired up and ready to go on the Friday night at the old ice rink — this should be an interesting one.
