The Canes have so many players available that they now have five lines — at least in today's practice.
Dwight Helminen was centering one line with Tim Conboy and Patrick Eaves, and another had Michael Ryan at center with Scott Walker and Ryan Bayda.
Jussi Jokinen was working on Rod Brind'Amour's line with Sergei Samsonov.
Canes coach Paul Maurice said he expected Eaves to play Wednesday against the New Jersey Devils. Forward Scott Walker, who practiced today, will be held out, Maurice said.
