Hurricanes vs. Blackhawks Prediction

I’m on the Hurricanes -1.5 here. Even with Chicago at home, there’s just no backing the Blackhawks here. They’re playing out the string and don’t even look interested in playing spoiler at this point. The Hurricanes still have a ton to play for and are the better team from top to bottom, back to front, any way you slice it. Give me Carolina in a beatdown.
