Carolina Hurricanes DFS Spin

Antti Raanta stopped 30-of-32 shots in Saturday's 7-2 win over the St. Louis Blues. Raanta let in goals by Pavel Buchnevich in the second and third periods, but Carolina held a multi-goal lead at both points in the game and the netminder otherwise did a nice job of shutting down the Blues. The veteran goalie has been feeling it of late, having now yielded two or fewer goals in five of his last six starts. Showing next on the schedule for the Hurricanes, a Monday matchup with the Capitals.

Washington Capitals DFS Spin

Nicklas Backstrom scored a goal and assisted on another in Saturday's 4-3 win over the New Jersey Devils. Backstrom came through twice when it mattered most on Saturday, first scoring a go-ahead goal against Nico Daws about seven minutes into the third period and second adding an assist on Alex Ovechkin's insurance goal a few minutes thereafter. For the campaign as a whole, now, Backstrom has tallied six goals and 26 points across 34 games played. He has missed time with both hip and illness concerns this season, hence the curtailed number of games played.

Hurricanes vs. Capitals Betting Prediction

The Hurricanes are winless in their last five games versus the Capitals and are just 2-7 in their last nine games in Washington, while the underdog is 4-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams. Carolina is also just 1-4 in its last five road games and is 2-5 in its last seven games overall. On the other side, the Caps are 9-3 in their last 12 games overall and have cashed in four of their last five games as an underdog.
