The New Jersey Devils have been having an exceptional season thus far, showcasing their dominance by triumphing over the Rangers in the first round of the playoffs.

How the game will play out

The upcoming clash between the Devils and the Hurricanes promises to be a captivating battle, as both teams vie for supremacy in the highly competitive metropolitan division. One thing to keep in mind is the fact that these two teams have already faced each other four times during the regular season, with both teams securing two victories. Taking into account the location of the game, set to be played in the Carolina Hurricanes’ home arena, it seems reasonable to suggest that the home-ice advantage may tip the scales in their favour, increasing their chances of emerging triumphant.

My pick: The Carolina Hurricanes with a puck line of -1.5 at (+205) iBet.

Edmonton Oilers vs Vegas Golden Knights

The Golden Knights are having a great season as they finished at the top of the Pacific division. Their recent victory over the Jets in the first round of the playoffs has further solidified their position as a formidable force in the league. When it comes to the post-season period, the Golden Knights are scoring an average of 3.80 points per game while only allowing 2.80. Leading the charge for the team is the exceptional Mark Stone, who has been scoring an average of 8 points per game.

On the other side of the ice, the Oilers faced a challenging start to the season. However, their resilience and determination enabled them to secure second place in the Pacific division. They are coming into this match, after eliminating the Kings in the first round of the playoffs. In the post-season period, the Oilers have been scoring 4.17 points per game while allowing 3.33 points. Leading the charge for the team are Leon Draisaitl and Conor McDavid, who have been delivering outstanding performances.
