The Carolina Hurricanes look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Carolina Hurricanes are averaging 3.5 goals per game and are scoring on 23.2 percent of their power play opportunities. Sebastian Aho leads Carolina with 11 goals, Teuvo Teravainen has 15 assists and Dougie Hamilton has 73 shots on goal. Defensively, the Carolina Hurricanes are allowing three goals per game and are killing 83.3 percent of their opponents power plays. Petr Mrazek has allowed 39 goals on 398 shots and James Reimer has given up 23 goals on 237 shots. The Carolina Hurricanes have allowed three or more goals in eight of their last 10 games. 

The Panthers are 9-4 in their last 13 games playing on 1 days rest, 13-6 in their last 19 Saturday games and 5-1 in their last 6 overall. The Hurricanes are 4-1 in their last 5 overall, 13-5 in their last 18 games as a home favorite and 36-15 in their last 51 games as a favorite. The over is 37-14-1 in Panthers last 52 overall. The over is 4-1 in Hurricanes last 5 overall. The Panthers are 9-29-1 in the last 39 meetings in Carolina and 0-4 in the last 4 meetings. The home team is 53-25-2 in the last 80 meetings.

The Carolina Hurricanes have won four straight and eight of the last 10 games against the Panthers, so you can understand why they're the favorites on their home ice. However, I've said a few teams that I'm not looking to step in front of the Florida Panthers, a confident team that never feels its out of a game and has one of the top offenses in the sport. Once Bobrovsky figures out how to stop goals in the first two periods, the Panthers are going to be downright scary moving forward. As an underdog, I'll gladly back the Panthers on the road.
