NHL Betting Trends


The Hurricanes are 10-3 in their last 13 road games. Carolina is 19-7 in its last 26 games overall.


Carolina has been stellar on the road lately and are one of the more exciting stories in the NHL this season. This is a big test on the road at the defending Stanley Cup champions, but it's a situation the Hurricanes will be up for and can handle. Washington has been inconsistent all season and is capable of a dud at anytime. It's certainly possible that happens tonight.
