Preview

The Carolina Hurricanes hit the road and will visit the New York Rangers on Tuesday. This is the third time these teams face off this season, they're tied 1-1. Both teams have clinched the playoff berth but they're fighting for the first place in the Metropolitan Division.

Carolina Hurricanes

The Hurricanes have lost 3 of their last 5 games and are 20-15 on the road with a 47-18-8 overall ranking 1st in the Metropolitan division. The Hurricanes are 12-8-1 against opponents from the Metropolitan. Carolina has scored 242 goals and ranks third in the Eastern Conference averaging 3.3 goals per game. Sebastian Aho leads the team with 33.

Aho leads the Hurricanes with 39 total assists and has 72 points. Teuvo Teravainen has 10 points over the last 10 games for Carolina.

In their last 10 games the Flyers are 5-5, averaging 3.7 goals, 6.6 assists, 4.6 penalties and 11.7 penalty minutes while allowing 2.4 goals per game with a .902 save percentage.

New York Rangers

The Rangers have won 3 of their last 5 games and are 24-11 at home this season with a 47-20-6 record overall ranking 2nd in the Metropolitan Division just 2 points behind the Hurricanes. The Rangers are 13-7-1 against Metropolitan teams. New York is the top team in the Eastern Conference with 5.2 assists per game, led by Artemi Panarin averaging 1.0.

Panarin has 88 total points for the Rangers, 21 goals and 67 assists. Chris Kreider has eight goals and six assists over the last 10 games for New York.

In their last 10 games the Rangers are 7-3, averaging 3.6 goals, 6.1 assists, three penalties and 6.5 penalty minutes while giving up 2.6 goals per game with an .890 save percentage.

BETTING TRENDS

Carolina are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against NY Rangers.

Carolina are 2-18 SU in their last 20 games when playing on the road against NY Rangers.

NY Rangers are 14-6 SU in their last 20 games at home.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of NY Rangers' last 5 games against Carolina.

Prediction

These are two of the best teams in the league and they already clinched the playoff berth but this is a very important game for both as Carolina leads the divisiononly by 2 pts above the Rangers. New York are playing really good at home and the Canes have struggled playing on the road against them. Expect a close game and with two of the top defenses in the NHL I think the safest play is the under.

PICK: Under 5.5 (-110)
