The New York Rangers host the Carolina Hurricanes tonight. Tone's Takes give his prediction.

New York Rangers vs Carolina Hurricanes Prediction: Will Goaltending Be the Difference Tonight?

The Hurricanes and Rangers battle tonight in what is a very important divisional game. The Rangers sit four points behind the Canes with three games remaining on the schedule. New York has a game in hand on the Canes so the winner of this game could end up being the eventual Metro Division Champion. Carolina has won four in a row and are coming off a 5-2 win, on Long Island, on Sunday. The Rangers have won seven of their last nine but are coming off a 3-1 defeat, at Boston, on Saturday.

The Canes have questions in goal right now. Freddie Andersen has been out for two weeks with an undisclosed injury. Backup Antti Raanta left Sunday's game with an injury, he is probable to start tonight, however.

The Canes are allowing 2.75 goals per game, on the road, which is the sixth least in the league. Their Penalty Kill is 83.8%, the fourth best in the league.
