Hurricanes at Islanders projected goalies

Pyotr Kochetkov (5-1-4, 2.44 GAA, .914 SV%, 1 SO) vs. Ilya Sorokin (10-8-0, 2.33 GAA, .927 SV%, 2 SO)

Kochetkov coughed up 4 goals on 30 shots last time out in Anaheim, but he is still a respectable 3-0-2 across his past 4 starts and 5 appearances overall. He has faced the Islanders just once in his career, coming on in relief April 24, 2022 with 1 goal allowed on 8 shots.

Sorokin was hammered for 5 goals on 26 shots in Tuesday’s loss against the St. Louis Blues, giving him losses in 3 consecutive starts. He was in between the pipes Oct. 28 for the win in Carolina, allowing just 2 goals on 35 shots.

Hurricanes at Islanders picks and predictions


Hurricanes 3, Islanders 2


The HURRICANES (-150) are a decent play as moderate favorites, as Carolina has won 4 of the past 5 games overall, while going 13-5 in the past 18 outings when playing on 3 or more days of rest.

The Islanders (+130), on the other hand, are playing on no rest after winning 6-4 in New Jersey. Carolina is the last team New York wants to see, as it is just 2-10 in the past 12 meetings despite the win in October. The Canes are also 21-7 in the past 28 meetings in Long Island, too.

Puck line/Against the spread

The Islanders +1.5 (-210) will cost you more than 2 times your potential return if you’d like some insurance, and that’s just too expensive. If you like it, take New York on straight up.



UNDER 5.5(+100) at even money is a strong play.
