In their last 10 games the Hurricanes were 5-5, averaging 2.3 goals, five assists, 4.4 penalties and 9.2 penalty minutes while giving up 2.7 goals per game.

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Carolina's last 8 games.
Carolina are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.

The Blue Jackets added Johnny Gaudreau in the offseason, and while he was fantastic last season, he did it with one of the finest lines in hockey, which will not be the case this season with the Blue Jackets who will continue to struggle defensively this season. The Hurricanes had a great season last year and have dominated the Blue Jackets beating them in 6 of the last 7 head to head games. The Canes defense was one of the toughest last season allowing 2.5 goals per game so expect them to be solid again this year. Carolina is 9-1 in the last 10 games at home so it's hard to trust the Blue Jackets on this one. Take the Hurricanes to win by 2 or more goals.
