Free NHL Pick For Mar 1: Rangers vs. Hurricanes
New York Rangers (1.71) vs. Carolina Hurricanes (2.20); Total 5
7:05 PM ET starting time for this game.
The game I will be looking at tonight is the Rangers vs. Hurricanes. Strangely enough it does not have any real playoff implications like so many games do this time of the year. The Rangers are trying to win the Eastern Conference while the Hurricanes are just playing out the stretch. This will be the 3rd meeting of the season between these two teams. The Rangers have won the 2 previous games. This will be Marc Stall’s first game against his brother Eric since suffering a concussion from a hit he took from Eric (which has nothing to do about betting on this game). Both teams are coming off wins in their last games. Starting in goal for the Rangers will be Biron. Can the Rangers make it 3 for 3 this season over the Canes?

New York Rangers vs. Carolina Hurricanes Prediction:
For the pat few months goals have been down in the NHL and we have been seeing a lot of low totals. Just last year there was usually a total of 6 (and sometimes 6.5) for a game just about every night. I can’t remember the last time I saw a total of 6 in a NHL game. With all these low totals I have been looking to the OVER’s in games recently which is not something I usually like to do. A week ago I was on the OVER in the Rangers vs. Islanders game with Biron in goal. The Islanders came away with a 4-3 win in that game and the OVER cashed easily. Biron does have good career numbers against the Canes but in his last 4 games the Rangers are just 1-3 and have allowed 15 goals. Again the total in this game is just 5 goals at Intertops Sportsbook (1.83 for the OVER). The last time these teams played in Carolina the Rangers won 5-3. The last 9 Carolina Hurricanes games have had at least 5 goals. 7 of the last 10 Rangers games have had 5 or more goals and that is with Lundqvist starting most of the games. With little playoff implications on the line there is no need for either team to play lockdown hockey. This game should reach at least 5 goals and get more than 5 enough of the time to make this a strong wager. I’ll take the Rangers vs. Hurricanes OVER 5 goals for 1.83 at Intertops Sportsbook.
