Boston’s recent success has been a result of elite play from the team’s superstars. Brad Marchand has recorded seven straight multi-point games, while David Pastrnak has scored seven times in his last five games. Taylor Hall, meanwhile, has seven points in his last five contests.

Boston is also one of the best defensive teams in the NHL, as they rank fourth in goals against average (.2.54). Tuukka Rask has returned to the team, posting a .926 save percentage in his first game back. The Finnish veteran is Tuesday’s projected NHL starting goalie vs the Hurricanes.

Hurricanes’ Value as Road Underdogs

The Hurricanes have won six of their last eight games heading into Tuesday’s showdown with Boston. Rod Brind’Amour’s club bounced back from an ugly 6-0 loss to Columbus with a solid 4-1 victory over Vancouver on Saturday. Andrei Svechnikov had two assists for the Canes.

It isn’t very often the Hurricanes are listed as the betting underdog. This will be just the seventh time this season Carolina isn’t the favored NHL team. The Canes are an impressive 5-2 when listed as road favorites so far in 2021-22.

Carolina ranks sixth in NHL offense, averaging 3.40 goals per game. Sebastian Aho leads the team with 38 points in 32 games, while Svechnikov and Teuvo Teravainen are producing at near a point-per-game pace. Top-six winger Martin Necas, however, has entered COVID protocol.

While the Canes continue to light the lamp offensively, their defense remains one of the best in the game. Carolina is allowing an NHL-best 2.29 goals per game entering Tuesday’s matchup. Goalie Freddie Andersen (.928 SV%) is expected to duel with Rask in the Tuesday NHL odds.

With Rask getting comfortable in the Boston crease and Andersen being among the top NHL goalies, the game total is what you want to target. The two teams have combined for four or less goals in three of the past four meetings.

Although there are certainly talented offensive players in this game, both defenses are among the league’s best at suppressing high-danger chances. Look for the goalies to steal the show and help deliver another low-scoring edition of Carolina vs Boston.

Pick: Under 5.5 (-112)
