Full detailed prediction read below
Carolina alternates victories with defeats and, for example, having gained the upper hand over Vancouver (4: 3 B) on its ice, she went on a visit to St. Louis, which in the end lost with a score of 3:6. However, a major defeat should not adversely affect the team, as it, on the contrary, needs to gain momentum, since it is behind the eighth position of the East by one point.
Now “Hurricanes” will play 3 more matches away from home, where they have 12-11-2 in the whole season. The team of Rod Brind’Amour now really needs victories, given that the latest results, and Carolina won only 3 matches from the previous 8, drove them outside the playoff zone. Now Hurricanes are in 9th place in the conference and already 6th in the Metropolitan Division.
Separately, you can select all the same. Sebastian Aho, having abandoned St. Louis, brought the strike series to 4 consecutive games (3 + 2), and also strengthened as the team’s main sniper with 27 goals. Teuvo Teravainen brought the number of assists to 40 and scored 10 points (3 + 7) in the previous 9 matches. Martin Necas, who also scored St. Louis, scored his 4th goal in the last 10 games.
However, we note that Hurricanes are not as productive in away games as in their native arena and, on average, do not differ by more than three goals.
Arizona finally interrupted a series of five defeats and won Victoria against “Edmonton” with a score of 3: 0. Earlier, the team on its ice lost outside of extra time to Los Angeles (2: 3 OT) and Chicago (2: 3 B).
The unsuccessful segment made the tournament position even more difficult for the team that was not very healthy lately. To date, the team of Rick Tocchet shares the third line with Vegas in the Pacific Division, while passing in the playoffs on the wild card, but the Coyotes handicap there is only 3 points.
The situation is complicated by the fact that the next after the game with “Carolina” 4 matches “Arizona” will play away. On the road, the team lost the last 5 meetings in regular time.
In many ways, the problems of Coyotes have recently been associated with the injury to the main goalkeeper Darcy Kuemper, who on January 29, however, has already resumed training. Against “Carolina”, apparently, the third match in a start in a row will be held by Antti Raanta.
The 30-year-old Finn had a great previous match against Edmonton, repelling 30 shots and earning a second shutout of the season.
Coyotes, in general, do not miss so much when they play on their court and, on average, allow their opponents to distinguish themselves no more than twice.

Hurricanes vs Coyotes Prediction
A fairly important match for both teams, but if Arizona, regardless of its outcome, remains in the playoffs as of today, then Carolina may well fly out, although the team is more than talented.
In the East, the fight turned out in a very cruel way and every match is now worth its weight in gold, in fact Carolina, Florida, Toronto, Philadelphia and the Rangers claim 2 playoff places, somewhere in the distance.
The hurricanes have a very talented team, which boasts a young and cool defense, a deep line of attack, which has at its disposal, including leading league hockey players, which are Aho, Teryaväinen and Svechnikov.
Given the form, we think that two points should be given to the guests, Carolina I think is a much more talented and ready for the playoffs team.
Our prediction is the victory of Hurricanes!
