New York Rangers vs. Carolina Hurricanes Game 6 Betting Preview

The NHL Playoffs are going to continue on Thursday night, and there is a big game coming in the Eastern Conference. Game 6 between the New York Rangers and Carolina Hurricanes will be taking place, and this one should be a great battle. 

New York is coming into this game with a 3-2 series lead, but they missed out on a chance to end the series with a win in Game 5. The Rangers have now dropped two straight games in the series, and they need to get momentum back in a hurry. 

Carolina looked dead after falling into an 0-3 hole in this series, but they have responded in a major way. The Hurricanes now have a ton of momentum ahead of this series, and they will have a huge crowd behind them. 

The moneyline odds for this game have the Carolina Hurricanes at -165, and the New York Rangers at +140. 

Shesterkin Saving the Rangers

Everytime that the New York Rangers have been in trouble this season, goaltender Igor Shesterkin has been able to bail them out. Shesterkin is allowing just 2.33 goals per game, but he has been a bit leaky in two games. 

New York also needs to find a way to give Shesterkin some support in the blue paint as they have been giving up too many scoring opportunities. The Rangers are getting too comfortable on offense, but defense has been their calling card. 

Mika Zibanejad is leading the team with 13 points so far in the postseason, but this team needs Artemi Panarin to lead the way on offense. New York can win this game on offense, but don’t be surprised to see them trying to slow things down. 

Hurricanes Hanging On

Carolina is doing everything that they can to stay alive in this series, and they have gotten four goals in two straight games. The Hurricanes are letting loose in each game, but that strategy could end up costing them moving forward. 

Sebastian Aho is leading this team with 10 postseason points, and he has been a key member of this offensive attack. The Hurricanes are a tough team to stop on the power play, and they will need to take advantage of those chances yet again. 

Carolina has been slowing down the Rangers in this series, but that is something that they will have to get done again to keep their season alive. 

Rangers Get Series Victory

New York completely shut down the Carolina Hurricanes in the first three games, but this team has to get back to defending. The Rangers will lean on their star goaltender in this game, and he should be able to set the tone. 

Carolina will once again be playing with a sense of desperation, and that has given them an edge to come up with two straight wins. The Hurricanes just aren’t going to have as much luck in this game and their impressive run will end. 

Bet the New York Rangers +140 as they are going to go on the road and get a huge win to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals.
