Rangers vs. Hurricanes: Game 5 prediction (series tied 2-2)
Goal Line: Rangers +1.5 (-200); Hurricanes -1.5 (+170)
Over/Under: Over 5.5 (+115); Under 5.5 (-135)
Carolina on home ice and on the road are basically two different teams. On the road the Hurricanes are 0-5 and have been outscored 21-8. In the comfy confines of PNC Arena, Carolina is 6-0 and have a 22-9 advantage in goals scored. That’s really the storyline with this game. I think Carolina is that much better on home ice and will win Game 5.
Pick: Hurricanes (-155)
