NHL Pick: Hurricanes ML (-155)

Carolina Hurricanes vs. New York Islanders

Thursday, April 25, 2024 – 07:30 PM ET at UBS Arena

Key Facts

  • Hurricanes are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games.
  • Hurricanes are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games on the road.
  • Hurricanes are 11-1 SU in their last 12 road games against the Islanders.

Rockin’ Like a Hurricane

Carolina opened up their series with the Islanders by notching a 3-1 win before they struck again on Monday evening with a 5-3 victory. They now lead the series 2-0 as the series moves to the UBS Arena in Elmont, New York.

The Canes have built their team on solid defense and stingy goaltending but the offense has not always been there to pick up the slack when the defense falters. Nevertheless, those occurrences are few and far between but in Game 2 the tables turned as the offense came alive with four third-period tallies to capture the win.

NHL Pick

There are some things you can chalk up to a statistical fluke while others you must take more seriously. The fact that the Hurricanes have won 11 of their last 12 road games against the Islanders makes this a no-brainer.

Sure, even a freight train stops but this Game 3 will be a backbreaker should the Isles drop this one in front of their home crowd and Carolina knows this all too well. Look for a low-scoring affair with the Canes grinding out another win and continuing their dominance over the Islanders.
