In the Capital Division Carolina is in sixth place with 67 points.

It is worth noting that the players of Rod Brind’Amore have excellent statistics of their performances at home. In the last 9 matches they suffered only 2 defeats. They lost only to Anaheim Ducks (1-2) after OT and Vegas Golden Knights with a minimum gap in the score (3-4).

Devils vs Hurricanes Prediction
Carolina is a strong middle placed team who fights for getting into the play-off stage. Brind’Amor guys have no right to make a mistake, so they will give all the best in this game. They will have two advantages, playing at the home ice and having a rest of 2 days more than their opponents. The Devils will come tired, because a while ago they had a tense fight against Detroit. It will be very hard to recover in such a short period of time.
Our prediction: Carolina Hurricanes will win.
