Hurricanes vs Capitals ATS Pick: Hurricanes – 1½ (+130)

Though Carolina is playing on the second night of a back-to-back, it should still be able to go back on the road and cover the puck line against Washington.

The Hurricanes have been playing good hockey recently, even on the road. In their past five games, the ‘Canes have given up just 1.8 goals a game, earning a shutout as well, while scoring it at a 4.6-goal mark in the same time.

Carolina should be able to keep up that hot scoring as the Caps have allowed 3.6 goals a game in their last five, including 4.3 in their last three home games. Capitals has also struggled to score, finding the back of the net an average of 2.8 times in its last five.

Expected starter Pyotr Kochetkov has been tough in net for Carolina, recording a .942 save percentage in his last three games, and with the way the Capitals’ offense has been playing, the ‘Canes should have no issue outscoring them.

 

 

Hurricanes vs Capitals Player Prop Pick: Sebastian Aho At Least One Assist (+125)

Although Aho’s scoring has slowed down a bit recently, he has still found a way to impact the scoring for Carolina, assisting on plenty of goals recently this month. Aho has recorded at least one assist in each of his last four games while he has at least one in seven of his last 10 games as well.

Aho has also performed well in away games so far this season, earning 22 assists in 31 road games. He has three in his two games against Washington this season. With the ‘Canes offense continuing to roll, Aho should be involved yet again Friday.
