New York Rangers Betting Analysis

The New York Rangers played an almost perfect game in game one. Unfortunately, they couldn’t withstand the pressure from the Hurricanes and lost game one. The Rangers couldn’t keep up the Hurricanes’ pace in the first game because of a tough seven-game series. 

As one of the NHL expert picks to win the Stanley Cup, this team has all of the resources to make a deep run in the 2022 NHL playoffs. They have a Vezina caliber goaltender but their lack of scoring is what is letting them down.

At the end of the day, if the Rangers want to win this series, they will need more scoring. This all starts with their superstar forward, Artemi Panarin. Panarin currently has three goals and four assists in his eight games so far this postseason. New York is sure to look to him to jumpstart their offense in game two.

Carolina Hurricanes Betting Analysis

The Carolina Hurricanes scratched and clawed their way to a win in game one of this Eastern Conference quarterfinal series. They stayed true to their game and eventually came away with the win.

This team is built to win with a defense-first mentality. They held the Rangers to just 28 shots on the net which will help limit the scoring threat of New York. Goaltender, Antti Raanta has played very well this postseason. He has a 4-2 record this postseason and will look to continue his winning ways in game two. 

Carolina has a roster that can score at any moment. They lean on Sebastian Aho to lead the way, but they are able to match up lines comfortably knowing that they can control the game in their favor. Keep an eye on the Hurricanes’ offensive attack throughout their lineup in this series.
