Hurricanes vs. Rangers game 4 prediction

The final score for Sunday’s Game 3 between the New York Rangers and the Carolina Hurricanes may line up with what we saw in the first two games in Raleigh, but any viewer would tell you that’s not the case.

In the first two games of the series, both Carolina and New York seemed okay with focusing on playing well-structured defense and keeping the game predictable. This pragmatic style of hockey culminated in Game 2 when the two teams combined to create 10 high-risk scoring chances in 5-on-5. On Sunday that total rose to 25 and were it not for the superb goalkeeping performance, particularly from Igor Shesterkin, Rangers and Hurricanes could have had some odd numbers in an otherwise fairly open game.

Hurricanes vs. Rangers game 4 prediction

And in that open environment, it was Carolina who had the run of the game. The Hurricanes attempted 19 more shots (63-44), created nine more high-risk chances (17-8) and had 1.35 more expected goals (3.39-2.04) in 5-on-5 in Game 3. Shesterkins Power and a power play goal was enough for Den Rangers to win – and New York are the kind of team that can get results despite the ice tilting the wrong way. That’s the beauty of having an all-world goaltender and great powerplay.

Even with a more open style of play, the final score for Game 3 was 3-1 and one of those goals came from the empty net. That makes a total of eight goals for the series, including two goals from empty nets and an overtime winner. In other words, it was a series to remember under-backers

In a series like this, the bookies know that no matter what the price, the money always shows up at the bottom. At the time of writing, the Over/Under for Game 4 sits at 5.5 with the Under juiced to -135. There’s even a chance we might. See some sportsbooks take Tuesday’s total to 5 throughout the day.

At this point, the buyer is on the alert in this series. You’re already paying a tax because the first three games expired, and it’s fair to say Game 3 was played as an over game, even if the final score wasn’t right.

Also, it’s hard to imagine that the goalkeepers in this series will be as good for much longer. Antti Raanta and Igor Shesterkin are both in great shape, but the two both have over .945 save percentages in three games. Part of that is down to the defensive chess play we saw in Game 2, where neither side created anything offensively, but eventually goalkeeping will wane, if just a little.

It’s also worth noting that after Game 3 there was a lot of extracurricular activity and both camps seem to be getting pretty heated. If that spills over into Tuesday night we could see a lot of power plays, which is a good thing for players supporting the over.

It’s pretty rare these days for NHL bettors to receive Plus Money on an Over 5.5. And while that streak has gone down in each of the first three games, there are signs the games are about to open up.
