Rangers vs. Hurricanes: Game 2 prediction
Goal Line: Rangers +1.5 (-180); Hurricanes -1.5 (+155)
Over/Under: Over 5.5 (-105); Under 5.5 (-115)
Carolina came out a little sluggish in Game 1 and the fact that the Hurricanes managed to keep the game 1-0 until they got going in the third period is something that should haunt the Rangers. New York had some opportunities to extend the lead, but got a couple of bad breaks and forward Kaapo Kakko missed an open net when he shot the puck through the crease. Those breaks are tough to bounce back from mentally, especially on the road. I expect Carolina to put together a better start tonight and a better overall effort in Game 2.
Pick: Hurricanes -1.5
