Hurricanes Looking To Win a Road Playoff Game

Chris Kreider also scored a goal for New York in Game 3. He scored his sixth goal of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, and it was also his first of this series. Kreider needs to fill the net once again in Game 4 of this series.
Igor Shesterkin finished with 43 saves for the Rangers in Game 3. He has been much better in this series for this hockey team after struggling in Round 1 vs. the Pittsburgh Penguins. Shesterkin is projected to be the starting goalie in this hockey game against the Carolina Hurricanes.
