Friday, February 8th brings you the NHL’s only game of the night, a matchup between the Carolina Hurricanes and New York Rangers live from the world famous Madison Square Garden. The Rangers won the last meeting between these two teams last month 6-2.
The Hurricanes come into this game winners of three out of their last five games, and will be in action on Thursday night, but those results were not available at the time of this article. Though they have an overall winning record, the Canes have struggled on the road this year.
C Sebastian Aho is Carolina’s leading goal scorer with 24 goals on the year, and he is also their overall points leader with 60 points. Projected starting goalie Curtis McElhinney comes in with a 12-6-1 record, with a 2.37 GAA and a .918 save percentage.
Injury Report: C Jordan Staal is listed as “out” for Friday night.
New York Rangers
The Rangers haven’t been as good as the Canes have been over their last five, winning only two of those games, including an overtime win against Boston on Wednesday. Their last seven games have been decided by one goal though, so they are hanging in games, even when they lose. The last game that wasn’t decided by just one goal, was the last time these two teams met last month.
LW Chris Kreider leads the Rangers in goals scored with 24, while C Mika Zibanejad is their overall points leader with 22 goals and 31 assists. Projected starting goalie Henrik Lundqvist comes in with a 16-13-8 record, with a 3.04 GAA and a .906 save percentage.
Injury Report: C Brett Howden and D Fredrik Claesson are both listed as “out” for the Rangers.

Free Carolina Hurricanes vs. New York Rangers NHL Prediction:
Things got a little dicey last time Carolina faced off against New York, and though I think the Rangers will win this game as well, I don’t think it will be as lopsided of an affair as that last game.
Take the Rangers to win this game on home ice. They may not be the better team on paper, but they do play really well at home, and Carolina does struggle on the road.
