The Canes will again be without injured forwards Jiri Tlusty, Alex Semin and Andrej Nestrasil on Thursday in the home game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Canes coach Bill Peters also said Wednesday he was not sure if defenseman John-Michael Liles would be available. Liles, who missed Tuesday's game in Montreal with an illness, did skate Wednesday at Raleigh Center Ice.
The Canes, 8-19-3 after the 4-1 loss to the Canadiens, have dropped six straight games and 10 of 12, falling to 30th in the NHL. Carolina has home games against the Leafs and New York Rangers, then face the Rangers in New York and the New Jersey Devils in Newark before the Christmas break.
