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.
