The New York Rangers face off against the Carolina Hurricanes in Game 3 of their second round playoff series on May 9, 2024, with the Rangers as +145 underdogs and the Hurricanes as -175 favorites according to DraftKings Sportsbook. Currently, the Rangers have 29% of moneyline bets, while the Hurricanes have 71%. The total of 5.5 is leaning towards the over with 68% of bets heading in that direction. This matchup promises to be an exciting one as both teams battle it out on the ice.

Going into Rangers vs Hurricanes Game 3, the Rangers hold a 2-0 series lead after holding serve at Madison Square Garden. New York got a great goaltending performance down the stretch from Igor Shesterkin in Game 2, setting up an overtime winner that would have drastically changed the series had Carolina been able to score instead. Now, the series shifts to Carolina for the first time, where the Canes must pick up a win in order to avoid a 3-0 deficit to the top team in the league this season.

Our expectation is that the Hurricanes manage to get a win to move to within 2-1 in this series. The Canes have certainly not struggled to score so far in this series, scoring three goals in each of the first two games in New York. Look for Carolina to continue to have success offensively, while their defense should be better on home ice, especially with the Rangers not being as good on the road as they have been at Madison Square Garden throughout the 2023-24 campaign.
