With no new positive tests over the past two days, the Carolina Hurricanes plan to play tonight's game against the Detroit Red Wings with 10 forwards and six defencemen, two skaters short of a full lineup, according to TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun.

The Hurricanes had their game against the Minnesota Wild postponed Tuesday after four more players entered the NHL's COVID protocol, bringing the team's total to six.

Ian ColeSteven LorentzJordan Staal and Andrei Svechnikov entered the protocol Tuesday, with the Hurricanes stating that the four will remain Minnesota for the time being. Sebastian Aho and Seth Jarvis are currently in Vancouver after entering the protocol there on Monday.

The Hurricanes became the fourth team to have at least one game postponed this season, one day after the Calgary Flames joined the Ottawa Senators and New York Islanders, who had games postponed last month.

Carolina announced the team will use the following lines Thursday:

Niederreiter - Trocheck - Necas

Teravainen - Kotkaniemi - Fast

Drury - Stepan - Noesen - Poturalski

Slavin - DeAngelo

Skjei - Pesce

Smith - Bear
