NY is coming off four straight wins against the Hurricanes. Head coach Gerard Gallant has found the optimal combination of units, adding Vladimir Tarasenko and Patrick Kane, who were signed at the trade deadline. The Rangers took turns beating Washington (5-3), Pittsburgh (4-2 and 6-0), and Nashville (7-0), scoring 22 pucks in those games. Overall, they have not failed in regulation time for seven consecutive games. Before the winning streak, the Rangers beat Buffalo and Montreal in overtime and lost to Pittsburgh on the road. Ahead of the playoffs, they look very powerful.
The Hurricanes lost Andrei Svechnikov to injury and expectedly lost momentum. Head coach Rod Brind'Amour has yet to find the best ways to make up for the absence of one of his top forwards. Carolina has only one win in the last five games, a 5-3 victory over Winnipeg in regulation time. They also won only in overtime over weak Philadelphia (5-4) and suffered three losses: to Vegas (0-4), New Jersey (0-3), and Toronto (2-5). As can be seen from these results, the loss of Svechnikov significantly impacted Carolina's offensive potential.
Expect Betting Tips
Carolina is the slight favorite for the upcoming game, which is odd. The Hurricanes have failed three of their previous five games, while the Rangers have won six of the last seven without a loss. In addition, both faceoffs against Carolina in this league ended in victories for the New York team. We are betting on the Rangers here and on a productive game because of the skew in the odds. The Rangers' offense has been working well lately, and they play primarily TO games, just like Carolina, by the way. Six of the Hurricanes' previous nine games have ended with a TO (5.5).
