Maple Leafs vs Hurricanes prediction

The Hurricanes are going to get the benefit of the doubt at home, where they're 23-9-4 on the season. The Canes have also won the last three games against the Maple Leafs, which includes a shootout win eight days ago. With all that said, the Maple Leafs in the underdog role is always appealing because of their talent on the offensive side. Also, the Maple Leafs are 21-8-6 on the road this season, which includes wins in three of their last four road games. The Canes should be favored, but the value is with the Maple Leafs and the plus money. Give me the road dog.
