New York Rangers vs. Carolina Hurricanes Game 6: Picks, Predictions, Odds and Player Props

Read the latest betting picks, predictions, odds and player props for New York Rangers vs. Carolina Hurricanes Game 6 in the second round of the NHL Playoffs.

The Rangers once held a 3-0 series lead over the 'Canes, but have since lost two in a row and now head to a Game 6 in Carolina on Thursday night.

Four teams in Stanley Cup Playoff history have come from 3-0 behind to win a series, with the most recent coming in 2014 when the LA Kings did so against the San Jose Sharks.

New York Rangers vs. Carolina Hurricanes Game 6 picks and predictions

The Carolina Hurricanes are looking to force a Game 7 tonight.

The key for the Hurricanes is going to be to keep this game at 5-on-5. The Hurricanes have been one of the best teams at even-strength this postseason, and they lead the Playoffs in shot attempts for and high danger scoring chances for. They've scored 20 goals at 5-on-5, that's second amongst playoff teams, while the New York Rangers rank near or at the bottom in those same categories.

The Rangers have been doing their damage on special teams. New York's power play is operating at a 30.3% clip which is third amongst playoff teams. Their penalty kill is even more impressive. The Rangers are 91.9% on the PK and have actually outscored their opposition 4-3 in the Playoffs while short-handed. Most teams strive to have their power play and penalty kill percentages add up to 100. In the Rangers case, their special teams add up to 122.2. That's incredible.

But what happens once we hit Games 5,6 and 7 in a playoff series? The whistles go away. I think the Hurricanes are not only going to win this game, but win the series because the game is going to be played at 5-on-5.
