Rangers vs. Hurricanes Game 5 Odds and Prediction: Carolina to Continue Home Winning Streak

By | May 26, 2022

The Carolina Hurricanes and New York Rangers square off on Thursday night with the series even at 2-2. The series now shifts back to Carolina after New York was successful in winning both of their home games.

Games 3 and 4 for the Rangers were proof that they still belong in the Stanley Cup Playoff bracket. They held the Hurricanes to a goal in each game, and their goalie, Igor Shesterkin, stopped 73 of 75 shots between the two games.

Carolina was awful on the power play, going 0 for 5 in New York. They were able to maintain pressure when it was even strength, but Shesterkin was there to answer almost every scoring chance the Canes had to offer.

Mika Zibanejad was on point at home. He scored in both games to bring his total for the playoffs up to 5.

Heading into Game 5 with the series tied, the odds favor the Hurricanes at home. The Hurricanes have not lost at home during the playoffs, and they will look to take the series lead in front of the home fans.

Carolina Home vs. Away

The Hurricanes are 6-5 in the playoffs this year. They have won all 6 of their home games, but they have also lost all of their road games.

They have scored 22 goals at home in the playoffs, but on the road they have only managed 8 goals. Their splits are drastic, and home ice advantage has helped them maneuver through the first 2 rounds and still have a chance to advance.

Each of the last 12 games played by the Hurricanes has been won by the home team. This streak stretches back into the final week of the regular season.

Carolina has a nice trend going for bettors. They have been predictable so far in the playoffs, and if the trend continues, they have nothing to worry about. 2 of the last 3 games of the series will be played in Raleigh, where Carolina has dominated.

Heading into future rounds, Carolina has to be careful. With how bad they have played away from PNC Arena, one slip up at home would sway the advantage to the Rangers in Round 2.

I am going off trends for my prediction tonight. Carolina is the solid favorite at home, and I believe they will continue their winning ways at home.

Rangers vs. Hurricanes Prediction and Best Bets

Rangers vs. Hurricanes Prediction: Hurricanes 3, Rangers 2

Rangers vs. Hurricanes Best Bets: Hurricanes on the moneyline (-156 at FanDuel and -160 at Caesars Sportsbook) and Under 5.5 total goals (-135 at Caesars Sportsbook)

Every game in the series has gone Under the total goals line. The goaltending has been solid, and there have not been many high quality scoring chances. I don’t expect anything to change as the series shifts back to Carolina.

The Hurricanes are the best bet at home. They haven’t lost in PNC Arena during the playoffs, and they can’t afford to be down in the series going into Game 6 on the road.
