Game pregame notes from North Carolina

RALEIGH, NC — A few quick pregame notes:

Shawn Thornton [1] is a healthy scratch for the Boston Bruins [2], and Byron Bitz is in on the fourth line tonight. Interesting move by coach Claude Julien [3], 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 [4] crowd looks fired up and ready to go on the Friday night at the old ice rink — this should be an interesting one.
