Bet Hurricanes To Continue Mastery of Blackhawks

The Carolina Hurricanes are currently co-favorites to win the Stanley Cup in the NHL Vegas odds as they go for a fifth straight victory on Sunday night against the host Chicago Blackhawks.

The Hurricanes began their regular season-ending, four-game road trip with a 4-1 win at Boston on Tuesday and defeated St. Louis 5-2 on Friday. Carolina is three points behind the first-place New York Rangers in the Metropolitan Division with two games left.

Sebastian Aho and Martin Necas each had a goal and an assist as the Hurricanes beat the Blackhawks 6-3 on Feb. 19 in Raleigh, N.C. for their fifth straight win in the series and eighth in the last nine meetings.

Chicago owns the second least points in the league and has lost three straight, scoring just three times, since beating Dallas – the top team in the Western Conference. The Blackhawks are last in the NHL in scoring (2.16 per game).

Carolina is the favorite to win the East at +300 in the NHL conference odds and +700 to win the Cup.
