Carolina Hurricanes vs. New York Rangers Game 7 Prediction

On Saturday night, the New York Rangers staved off elimination with a 5-2 home win. Filip Chytl led the offense with 2 goals and Igor Shesterkin made 37 saves in the win. Home teams have dominated this series and nobody has been able to win on the road yet. Goals have also been tough to come by as Game 6 was the first over of the series.

In the 6 games, there have been a total of 25 goals scored, a per-game average of 4.17. In 7 home games this season, Carolina has allowed only 8 goals. The Canes are one of the stingiest defensive teams in the league, especially on home ice where they can dictate matchups. 

In the five Game 7s of the first round, the under went 4-1 with a total of 22 goals being scored. Game 7 usually means very low-scoring, tight-checking hockey. Both of these teams played in Game 7 in the first round. New York defeated Pittsburgh 4-3 in overtime and Carolina defeated Boston by a 3-2 score.

During the regular season, the Hurricanes gave up a league-low, 2.12 goals per game at home and they had the league's best Penalty Kill, at 92%. On the road during the regular season, New York gave up 2.71 goals per game and their Penalty Kill was 9th, at 80%.

I am expecting a very cautious, tight-checking game as per usual Game 7s and I will gladly take the under 5 at a plus money price. This game should also start slow and I am adding No goals in the first ten minutes, also at a plus money price.
