The Carolina Hurricanes may have lost to the Lightning last night, but they're still playing well enough and have been consistent enough this season to avoid in the plus money spots. It also can't go unnoticed that the Hurricanes took Tampa to overtime last night, making a comeback, and they've competed against this team all season. The Tampa Bay Lightning are the better team here overall and are going to be favored at home, but the value is with the Hurricanes and the plus money no matter how you slice it.
