Hurricanes Strong Moneyline Bet in Game 2 Vs Islanders

The Carolina Hurricanes are the favorite to win the Stanley Cup in the NHL playoff odds and they hope to show why on Monday while going for a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference first-round series against the visiting New York islanders.

The Hurricanes – +600 to win the Cup – came to life in the third period on Saturday in Game 1, scoring twice for a 3-1 victory. Carolina beat the Islanders in the opener of their first-round series last season and had to go to overtime in Game 2.

If goalie Frederik Andersen continues his current form, the Hurricanes will be tough for everyone and cash many bets for their backers. Andersen missed most of the regular season with injury and illness, but went 13-2-0 and stopped 33 of 34 shots on Saturday.

Sergei Varlamov made 23 saves on 25 shots in the opener for the Islanders, starting in place of Ilya Sorokin, and has allowed 10 goals in his last six games.

The Hurricanes are -800 to win the series in the Las Vegas hockey odds while you will get paid if the Islanders (+600) rebound and move to the second round.
