Hurricanes Remain Unbeaten At Home

The Hurricanes have now won all seven of their home playoff games at PNC Arena after the Game 5 victory in Raleigh. Carolina has also lost all five of its playoff games on the road during the postseason. The Jekyll-and-Hyde Hurricanes held the Rangers to just 17 shots on Thursday.

The Canes can advance to the Eastern Conference Finals against Tampa Bay with a win at New York on Saturday. Should the series go to a Game 7, Carolina owns the NHL’s longest winning streak in those decisive playoff games at six.

Carolina has a balanced scoring attack as four players, including Sebastian Aho, have scored at least four goals during the postseason. Teuvo Teravainen is among that contingent after he scored a rare power play goal for Carolina in Game 5. He leads the Hurricanes with 11 points in the playoffs.

The Hurricanes also have two goalies who combined to lead the NHL in goals against average during the regular season. Frederik Andersen, who was injured in April and has yet to appear in the NHL playoffs, and Raanta allowed a league-low 202 goals.

Great goaltending from both teams have allowed all five games in the series to go “under” the total. It’s been the best bet in the 2022 NHL Playoffs to date. FanDuel was dealing -144 on “under” 5.5 for Game 6. The “over” could be had at +118 as of Friday morning.

Rangers Have Been Resilient In The Playoffs

The Rangers overcame a two-game deficit to Pittsburgh in the opening round of the playoffs. They also defended home ice in Games 3 and 4 against the Hurricanes. Igor Shesterkin stopped 72 of 74 shots in those games. 

Shesterkin is a candidate to win the Hart Trophy as NHL MVP. While that award will most likely go to Toronto’s Auston Matthews or Edmonton’s Connor McDavid, Shesterkin is a shoo-in to win the Vezina as the NHL’s best goaltender.

New York is paced offensively by Mika Zibanejad, who scored the only goal for the Rangers in the Game 5 loss. Zibanejad has a team-high 15 points in the postseason, and he and Chris Kreider have both registered six goals in the playoffs.
