N.Y. Rangers 1 @ Carolina 2 | 05/18 | 11:00 PM UTC

Carolina -160

WIN

ANALYSIS: Until the Hurricanes give me a reason not to, I'm going to ride them in Raleigh as they won all four in Round 1 there against the Bruins yet lost all three in Boston by multiple goals. Having an extra day of rest won't hurt the Canes, either. Rangers goaltender Igor Shesterkin didn't look like himself in much of Round 1 and was 0-2 with a 3.63 GAA this season against Carolina.
