Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Anton Babchuk to be reinserted into lineup tonight for Game 6 vs. New Jersey Devils

Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Anton Babchuk will be back in the lineup tonight as the ‘Canes try to even up the series at 3 against the New Jersey Devils.  Babchuk, who led Carolina defensemen in goals (16), had been a healthy scratch for Game 5, when Carolina was consequently shutout by New Jersey.  Babchuk had 9 powerplay goals this season and came on strong at the end of the season, after receiving increased ice-time.  Babchuk scored 2 goals in Carolina’s regular-season finale against New Jersey.  If Carolina can win tonight, Game 7 would be Tuesday night in Newark.
