Carolina vs Rangers: prediction for the NHL game
As we suspected,Carolina couldn't end the series in the previous game. The team lost every single away game in the current Stanley Cup playoffs, but the Hurricanes always win at home. In the previous fixture, the Canes lost 2:5 in New York. Goaltender Raanta had a poor performance and was substituted off in the second period after conceding three goals.
New York Rangers
The Rangers have a similar problem - the team loses on roads trips, but records victories at their home court. For instance, in the last game, New York crushed the Hurricanes with a score of 5:2. Forward Chytil scored a double, and goalie Shesterkin gave two assists while saving 97% of the shots. The Rangers will travel to Raleigh for the final game, which puts them at a disadvantage.
In 4 head-to-head games in a row, the teams scored in each period.
In 3 head-to-head games out of 4, the Rangers opened the scoring.
The Carolina Hurricanes have an opportunity to end this series at home, which gives them a serious advantage. The team won all of its playoff games at home. As the Rangers always seem to have trouble on their travels, we expect the Hurricanes to win.
Our prediction - Carolina to win
This will not be a high-scoring game. It is likely that the teams will play very carefully on defense today, as one mistake could cost them a spot in the semifinals. Take the under.
Second bet - total under 5.5 games
