Carolina Hurricanes vs NY Rangers Prediction

You would think the Hurricanes will put up more of a fight, given they won 56 games this season and were one of the most balanced teams in the league. The Canes were well above average at both ends of the ice, and you would think they’d put up more of a fight. The Hurricanes have also won 30 games at home. So, it wouldn’t surprise me if the Canes get off the amt and extend the series at least for another game. With that said, we’re getting plus money with the Rangers, the team that’s had all of the answers through 3 games and has won 8 of the last 10 games against the Hurricanes. Yes, all 3 games in this series have been competitive, but at some point the Canes have to be on the right side before we stop saying the Rangers just have their number. Give me the Rangers and the more favorable price.
