The Carolina Hurricanes can close out the New York Islanders as the series shifts back to Raleigh for Game 5 on Tuesday.

Islanders vs. Hurricanes Game 5 odds are available on top sportsbook apps, including DraftKings and FanDuel.

Carolina rolled to a 5-2 victory in Game 4 on Sunday in New York. The Hurricanes found their offensive stride with Seth Jarvis leading the charge with two goals. Sebastian Aho added a goal and two assists in a game that never looked in doubt.

Carolina won its third straight division title this year playing a punishing brand of defense, allowing only 2.55 goals per game during the regular season. Only Boston fared better, and the Isles checked in at a paltry 2.65.

Islanders vs. Hurricanes Betting News

Carolina is getting it done offensively with Max Pacioretty, Andrei Svechnikov, and Teuvo Teravainen out of the lineup due to injury.

Teravainen suffered a broken hand in Game 2 after a slash from New York’s Jean-Gabriel Pageau. Carolina was already missing two key players on offense heading into the NHL Playoffs. Pacioretty suffered a second torn Achilles and was lost for most of the regular season. The bigger loss involved Svechnikov, who suffered a season-ending knee injury against Vegas in mid-March.

The former first-round draft pick ranked second on the team with 55 points (23 goals and 32 assists) through 64 games this season. Aho has stepped up his game with a team-leading five points on two goals and three assists.

Antti Raanta was solid again in net with 27 saves in Game 4. He’ll look to record his ninth consecutive playoff win at PNC Arena in Game 5 on Tuesday.

New York got goals from Adam Pelech and Bo Horvat. Goalie Ilya Sorokin stopped just 24 of 29 shots to drop to 1-3 in the postseason.

Islanders vs. Hurricanes Game 5 Props

Player props won’t be released at DraftKings until tomorrow, but expect Carolina to keep its collective foot on the pedal. We’ll be targeting Aho to go Over his shots on goal total once again if the price is right.

We expect Carolina to keep peppering Sorokin with shots, but he was exposed a bit in Game 4. There will also be a potential play on his saves if we can find a favorable number and value.

Series Prop Bet

Sebastian Aho Top Goal Scorer for Series (+350 at DraftKings)

We got +350 on this prop at DraftKings before the series started, and that number had dropped to +250 as of Friday. Aho is one of five players to score two goals in the series. He can pay this prop off with another productive night in Game 5.

Aho, who led the Canes with 36 goals in the regular season, also scored three goals against the Islanders in four regular season games.

Islanders vs. Hurricanes Predictions

Carolina heads home to play in front of a raucous crowd at PNC Arena, where it’s been almost unbeatable dating back to last year. The Hurricanes have dropped only one game on home ice — Game 7 to the Rangers last year — during that span.

After picking the Canes to win in six games, we expect Carolina to close the series out in five with a victory on Tuesday. Carolina’s TV commentators offered up a telling stat during Sunday’s broadcast. Teams with a 3-1 series lead have ended up winning 90% of the time. That’s a daunting stat for Islanders fans.
