New York Rangers

New York Rangers had a terrible start of this regular championship, for a long time could not get out of the bottom of the standings, only now began to gain the appropriate rhythm. At the moment, David Quinn’s players are on the 11th line. They lack six points to reach the playoff zone. Based on the latest results, we can say with certainty that the Rangers are on the rise. Out of 6 extreme confrontations, they suffered only one defeat. They lost to Boston (the leader of the championship) on the way out with quite a devastating score (1-3).

It should be noted that this team has not lost 5 away games in a row. Most matches with their participation end up with the total of under, because he prefers to act from defense.

Carolina Hurricanes

Carolina Hurricanes is the seventh in the Eastern Conference standings, with 72 points. In extreme confrontations, the Hurricanes show an extremely unstable game, alternating victories with defeats.

Rangers vs Hurricanes Prediction

In the upcoming match Carolina Hurricanes is the favorite the preference is given only because of the home arena factor. Judging by the game, these teams are equal in strength. Besides, the Rangers have a huge advantage in head-to-head matches. Both teams are fighting to get into the cup stage, so they need to score points. We assume that the Rangers will try to play conservatively and most likely the Hurricanes will adjust to this style. The price of error is too high, so they will try to minimize the risks.
