The Hurricanes hold a 3-1 series lead heading into Islanders vs Hurricanes Game 5. The Canes had a chance to close this series out on Long Island in Game 4 of the series, but they were unable to do so, keeping the door open for the Islanders for just a little bit longer. But we do not expect the Isles to stay alive through Game 5, as the Hurricanes should be able to win this contest and cover the puckline as a favorite.

We took the Islanders to cover the puckline as an underdog in each of the first two games of this series in Carolina. And while the Isles were in position to cover the goal and a half margin for the majority of those games, they unraveled in the third period in both of those contests, allowing the favorites to cover the puckline instead. We should see something similar here, as the Canes will punch their ticket to the second round of the playoffs.

In the second round of the playoffs, a matchup with the New York Rangers awaits Carolina should they advance. The Rangers finished this season with the best regular season record in the NHL. That means the Canes could be in for a tough series, but Carolina has more than proven that they are capable of going toe-to-toe with the best teams in the NHL this season.
