4% – Carolina Hurricanes -106

4* Rotation #1 NHL Monday 4* Carolina Hurricanes -106 @ New York Rangers @ 7 ET - The Hurricanes lost the first 3 games of this series before finally notching a Game 4 win. However, it is not as if they have played poorly! Carolina actually has outshot the Rangers in all 4 games! Not only that, the average edge in shots on goal is 12 shots! That is a heavy advantage to hold game after game on average. The point is that Carolina has carried the play for quite a bit of this series. Keep in mind, they lost one of the games in OT and another one in double OT. That said, there is value with the road team here as we get a pick'em price on Carolina after swinging momentum with the Game 4 win. The Hurricanes know, of course, that they get Game 6 at home if they can win this game here. The Canes are so strong on home ice so the point is, in Carolina's mind, they still feel they have a great shot at forcing an “anything can happen” Game 7 if they can continue their comeback bid by winning here Monday evening. I look for them to do just that! Note that since the Game 1 loss, the Hurricanes have actually trailed a total of only 16 minutes in the last 4 games! So, as noted above, this is a unique situation where a very strong team has played quite well yet is down 3-1 in the series. Now with a momentum shift after getting the series-saving win in Game 4, don't be surprised if the Canes again keep the Rangers on their heels a bit in this one! 4* CAROLINA -106
