Game Four Recap: Carolina Stays Alive

The Carolina Hurricanes managed to keep their season alive after picking up a 4-3 win over the Rangers in game four. Evgeni Kuznetsov opened the scoring just 1:51 into the game before Stefan Noesen made it 2-0 just 4:38 later. Will Cuylle got the Rangers on the board just 1:33 after that to make it a 2-1 game, but Sebastian Aho would restore Carolina’s two-goal lead with 4:31 to go in the opening frame. Barclay Goodrow would cut the deficit to 3-2 with the Rangers’ lone goal of the second frame and Alexis Lafreniere would tie the game at three for New York just 2:04 into the 3rd. But Brady Skjei would ensure another collapse wouldn’t happen to Carolina with a power play goal with 3:11 to go in the final frame that ended up being the game winner for Carolina.

NY Rangers vs Carolina Hurricanes Prediction

I’m on the Rangers here to close out the series. Good on Carolina for getting on the board, but I see a gentleman’s sweep incoming. I’ve said it all series long, the Rangers are just a better version of the Hurricanes and the Rangers have played their best hockey at home all season long. The prices still hanging around a coin flip I would argue is borderline disrespectful for New York, but I’ll gladly take it. Give me New York here.
