  • Winner: Carolina Hurricanes
  • MOV (ATS): New Jersey +1.5
  • Total Score: O 5.5

The Carolina Hurricanes and the New Jersey Devils will be facing off in game 2 of their playoff series, with the Hurricanes currently leading 1-0. Looking at the statistics provided, it appears that both teams are evenly matched in terms of offensive prowess on paper.

The Hurricanes have averaged 3.159 goals per game during the regular season while shooting with an accuracy rate of 9.351% and a corsi percentage of 57.208%. Similarly for the away team, the Devil’s offensive performance also looks impressive as they have been able to average around 3.438 goals per game, albeit with a lower shooting accuracy rate (10.397%).

However, where things may differ is on special teams play; each team boasts formidable power play percentages during regulation gameplay – Carolina sporting an impressive powerplay percentage clip of almost twenty percent – but judging by these stats alone it seems that if one team were to get into penalty trouble more often throughout tonight’s matchup then there would potentially be implications for them towards which way this contest might swing.

Finally looking at goaltending performances thus far: both teams’ starting goalies seem to be having solid postseasons so far based solely upon save rates – the Hurricane’s netminder clocking an average save percentage rate of .902%, while opposing Devil’s goalie registered a .904 save % rate in his starts.

All-in-all we can expect another closely contested match between these two talented teams tonight; however going off sheer statistics available ahead of puck drop optimism likely leans towards this being yet another win for ‘Canes heading back to Raleigh up two games-to-none
