Pittsburgh Penguins travel to the Arena to play the Carolina Hurricanes.
Pittsburgh is 2nd in the Eastern Conference with 80 points, having played 58 games so far, with an overall record of 36W (win) 14OT (win in overtime) 8L (lost) (12W 10OT 5L on the road). Their score difference is +39 (204:165).
The Hurricanes are last in the Eastern Conference with 56 points and a score difference of -21 (141:162) and an overal record of 24W 8OT 23L.
The statistics alone would suggest Pittsburgh to be favourite (and the bookmakers agree), but this is not all the story: apart of the home advantage, Carolina comes to the match with all their most important men available (only Bryan Bickell is not going to play). On the contrary,
Pittsburgh is going to miss a lot of important players (Maatta, Schultz, Cheary, Rust among others).
For this reason we feel like going against the spread this time an back the Hurricanes to win the match straight up.
