The 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs will continue on Saturday with Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals between the New York Rangers and the Carolina Hurricanes. Carolina holds the 3-2 edge in the series coming off a 3-1 win in Game 5 where it outshot New York 34-17. However, now the series returns to Manhattan, where the Rangers have only lost once all postseason in a triple-overtime classic to start their series against the Penguins. So can the Rangers use home-ice advantage to force a Game 7?

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 128-65-4 in his last 198 NHL picks, returning over $2,900 for $100 players.
Severance knows that the Rangers have been much better at home than on the road throughout this postseason and goaltender Igor Shesterkin has been a big reason why. Shesterkin has a .949 save percentage overall this postseason and he’s stopped 73 of 75 shots on goal that the Hurricanes have managed in Madison Square Garden this season. Carolina has now lost every road playoff game it has played by multiple goals and the Rangers have won four of their last five home games by multiple goals.
However, Severance also knows that the Hurricanes will have some momentum coming off their Game 5 win back in Carolina to take a 3-2 series lead. The Rangers couldn’t mount anything offensively in that contest, putting just 17 shots on net with Antti Ranta turning away 16 of those attempts in a 3-1 win. Despite scoring a goal, it was a tough night for Mika Zibanejad who had a 5-on-5 Corsi For percentage of just 27.6 for the game. The Hurricanes will look to tie up Zibanejad similarly in Game 6.
Now, Severance has set his sights on Rangers vs. Hurricanes. We can tell you he has 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.
