FOX Sports Carolinas and SportSouth will swap hockey analysts when the Carolina Hurricanes visit the Atlanta Thrashers at 7 p.m. Saturday. During the second period, Thrashers analyst Darren Eliot will join Hurricanes play-by-play announcer John Forslund, and Canes analyst Tripp Tracy will join Thrashers play-by-play announcer J.P. Dellacamera. ESPN pulled a similar gimmick in January, assigning its NBA crew of Mike Tirico, Mark Jackson and Jeff Van Gundy to the Davidson-Duke game and having Dan Shulman and Dick Vitale work a Denver-Miami NBA game.
