CAROLINA HURRICANES vs. NEW YORK RANGERS PREDICTIONS

Both the Hurricanes and Rangers have clinched a spot in the postseason, but there is still plenty left on the line. Carolina has 102 points with nine games remaining, while the Rangers are in second place with 100 points. This game will go a long way to determining the Metropolitan Division champion.

Carolina enters with a plus-68 goal differential, while the Rangers have a plus-38. On the road, the Canes are 20-11-4 on the road, while the Rangers have posted a 24-7-4 in the past 35 at MSG. The last time these teams faced each other was March 20 in Raleigh, as the Rangers picked up a 2-0 win as the UNDER cashed behind Alexandar Georgiev. Prior to that, the Canes doubled up the Rangers 6-3 at PNC Arena as the OVER cashed Jan. 21. These teams will also face each other April 26.

CAROLINA HURRICANES BETTING ANALYSIS

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 23-38-11
  • ATS: 34-38
  • O/U: 38-34

The Hurricanes have alternated wins and losses across the past four games, as they've been stuck in neutral a little bit. The OVER and UNDER have also alternated in each of the past four outings, too.

Carolina has won just twice in the past eight games on the road, while going 3-7 in the past 10 games against teams with a winning record. They're also just 1-4 in the past five against Metropolitan Division teams, as Carolina has picked a poor time for arguably its worst stretch of hockey this season. The good news is that they're 20-6 in the past 26 games on a day of rest, while going 40-18 in the past 58 as a favorite.

For totals, the OVER is 12-5-1 in the past 18 games on the road, while going 9-4 in the past 13 as a road favorite. The OVER is also 4-1 in the past five against winning teams, although the UNDER is 9-4-1 in the past 14 against Eastern Conference teams while going 6-2-1 in the past nine against Metro foes.

NEW YORK RANGERS BETTING ANALYSIS

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 40-22-10
  • ATS: 37-35
  • O/U: 41-28-3

The Rangers have picked up 24 wins in the past 33 games at MSG, while going 6-1 in the past seven as a home underdog. They're also 5-0 in the past five overall as a 'dog.

The Rangers have picked up victories in 21 of the past 26 meetings at Madison Square Garden, while winning 38 of the past 54 meetings overall against Carolina. The favorite is also 4-1 in the past five meetings, while the UNDER has cashed in four of the past in the series.

In terms of the totals, the UNDER is 3-1-1 in the past five games overall, while also going 3-1-1 in the past five against Eastern Conference foes. The OVER is 4-1 in the past five against home underdogs, too.

CAROLINA HURRICANES vs. NEW YORK RANGERS BETTING CONCLUSION

This is a giant game, as the Hurricanes really need to pull out of its nosedive. Facing the Rangers at MSG is probably the worst possible place for the Canes to be able to snap their recent stretch of inconsistency.

Carolina has been on top of the division for most of the season, but New York has the chance to really shake things up in the Eastern Conference playoff picture. I think the Hurricanes rally around each other, rally around Frederik Andersen, and get the job done to put four points between themselves and the Blueshirts in a low-scoring game. It wouldn't be surprising to see overtime and/or a shootout, however.
