The Hurricanes have taken 55 more shots than the Rangers in this series and that has begun to wear on New York goaltender Igor Shesterkin, who has had a below .900 save percentage over the past two matches. 

Expect another barrage of shots from Carolina in Game 6 and the goals to flow, as they have done in the majority of games in this series. The Over Game Total is enticing with the Rangers defence looking tired in the third period last game and the tired legs will likely carry into this one as well with all of the defence they have played in this series.

  • Carolina have won 4 of 5 games at PNC Arena in the 2024 playoffs.
  • Carolina have scored an average of 3.2 goals per game in this series.
  • The Over has hit in 3 of 5 games in this series.

New York Rangers Form


The Rangers have continued to put themselves under pressure in this series by playing passive hockey and allowing Carolina to play long periods in their attacking zone and it has now come back to bite them.

Igor Shestikin has been carrying the Rangers in this series, however, two games with a save percentage under .900 has seen the Hurricanes take two victories. The Rangers goalie has faced 188 shots already in the five games this series averaging 37.6 shots per game.

Game 5 was the first time in the playoffs where the Rangers have failed to score 3 or more goals in the match.

New York Rangers Team News


Filip Chytil is struggling with illness and may miss Game 6.

Carolina Hurricanes Form


The Hurricanes pressure is beginning to wear on the Rangers as they have won the shot count and offensive possession heavily in this series. 

4 goals in the third period in Game 5 handed Carolina their second win in the series and have made things interesting heading back home to PNC Arena. Czech winger Martin Necas recorded his seventh and eight point of the playoffs in this series and will need more production in game 6 if the ‘Canes are going to force a Game 7.

Carolina Hurricanes Team News


Jesper Fast has been ruled out for the season with a neck injury.
