Rangers at Hurricanes projected goalies

Igor Shesterkin (7-2, 2.33 GAA, .924 SV%) vs. Frederik Andersen (6-3, 2.46 GAA, .902 SV%)

Shesterkin stopped 24 shots Monday and allowed 3 or more goals for a 2nd straight game (4th time this series). He has started all 36 playoff games for the Rangers in the past 3 years.

Andersen stopped 20 of 21 shots in Game 5, and the only goal he allowed was shorthanded to Rangers captain D Jacob Trouba. The 34-year-old has started 9 of 10 games for Carolina this postseason, getting Game 3 off in place of G Pyotr Kochetkov, as coach Rod Brind’Amour believed Freddy needed rest after the Rangers’ double-OT loss in Game 2.

Rangers at Hurricanes picks and predictions


Rangers 4, Hurricanes 3



These teams are so evenly matched that I would much rather take the plus money on the road team with the superior goaltender.

C Mika Zibanejad, the playoff points leader (13) for the Rangers, was held off the scoresheet for the 1st time this postseason in Game 5. That snapped an 8-game assist streak to start the playoffs, and only Bobby Orr in 1972 had a longer assist streak (11 games).

With Kreider potentially not 100%, expect the 31-year-old Zibanejad to elevate his game and lead his team to the Eastern Conference Final.

Puck line/Against the spread

Consider including Rangers +1.5 (-192) in a parlay.

Laying (-192) on the Blueshirts +1.5 as a single bet is too much. However, if you are into building parlays, pairing the Rangers +1.5 (-192) with the Florida Panthers (-154 at Boston Bruins, Friday at 7 p.m. ET) pays out +151 and provides a 2-night sweat.


BET OVER 5.5 (+100).

Carolina has attempted the most shots on goal in the playoffs (285) while also netting the most rebound goals (3) amongst Eastern Conference teams. Four of the 5 games in this series have been 1-goal games, so the potential for OT is certainly there, as is the possibility of empty-net goals with Carolina’s season on the line.
