Carolina @ Tampa Bay 3 | 02/24 | 10:00 PM UTC

Tampa Bay -135

WIN

ANALYSIS: Carolina hasn't lost back-to-back games yet this season but comes off a 4-2 home loss to the Lightning on Monday as their series shifts to Tampa for the front end of a back-to-back Wednesday. The Canes have announced that inexperienced Alex Nedeljkovic (2-1-1, 2.44 GAA) will be called up from the taxi squad to start in net. That alone is reason to back the Bolts at home, but Carolina is also without winger Teuvo Teravainen (nine points, plus-4) due to injury. Tampa has won nine of the past 10 at home in the series.
