Canes coach Paul Maurice said today that Justin Peters would start in goal Saturday against the Florida Panthers, with Manny Legace in net Sunday in Atlanta against the Thrashers.
The Canes' seven-game winning streak has come with goaltender Cam Ward sidelined with a back injury. Legace picked up his fourth win in the streak Thursday as Carolina topped Ottawa 4-1.
Peters was the winner Tuesday in the Canes' 5-1 win in Toronto. The rookie is 3-0.
Maurice said Eric Staal, hit in the left leg with a shot in Thursday's game, still was sore. Staal, who stayed in the game, was not among the players on the ice today for an optional practice at the RecZone in Raleigh.
