Rangers vs Hurricanes Betting Prediction

Carolina comes into this game on a three game winning streak and they have out scored their last three opponents by a total of 15-5. The Hurricanes are 21-8-4 at home this year and they are just a very solid team. New York is 19-10-4 on the road, but they will be on a back to back after beating the Devils on Monday. These are the top two teams in the Metropolitan Division and while I do think the rest advantage will be big for Carolina, I can’t pass up the Rangers at this price. Take New York here.
