The back-and-forth battle between the Carolina Hurricanes and the New York Rangers will come to an end on Monday night when the two sides meet for Game 7 of their 2022 Stanley Cup playoffs semi-finals series. The home team has been victorious in the six previous games, most recently in Game 6 which the Rangers won convincingly 5-2 at Madison Square Garden. With a chance at facing the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Eastern Conference Final on the line, this is sure to be one intense hockey matchup you will not want to miss.
Puck drop from PNC Arena is set for 8 p.m. ET. The Hurricanes are listed as the -150 (risk $150 to win $100) favorites on the 60-minute money line in the Hurricanes vs. Rangers odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the Rangers are the +130 underdogs. The over-under for goals is set at 5.5 (see the latest lines for every game on our NHL odds page).
Before making any Hurricanes vs. Rangers picks, you NEED to see the latest NHL predictions from the SportsLine hockey insider Matt Severance.
Severance is a well-connected writer and handicapper who has worked in the industry since 2005. He’s SportsLine’s top NHL handicapper, going 129-65-4 in his last 198 NHL picks, returning over $2,800 for $100 players.
Severance knows how big home ice advantage has been in this series for both teams. With the exception of Game 1 — which the Hurricanes won at PNC Arena 2-1 in overtime — every game in this series has been won by the home team dominating and scoring two-or-more goals. However, the rough and tumble nature of the series hints that the score in Game 7 could be much closer than the previous five. Is it still safe to say that Carolina can close it out on home ice, especially with how well the Rangers played in Game 6?
One key factor standing in Carolina’s way of advancing is Rangers goaltender Igor Shesterkin. The Russian netminder stood on his head for the Rangers through this series and enters Game 7 with a .926 save percentage after making 37 saves for New York in Game 6.
Now, Severance has set his sights on Rangers vs. Hurricanes and we can tell you he’s found a critical x-factor that has him jumping all over one side of the money line! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any NHL picks of your own.
