Carolina Hurricanes Looking To Win a Road Playoff Game
Nino Niederreiter scored the lone goal for the Carolina Hurricanes in Game 3. This was his fourth goal scored during the 2022 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. He needs to continue to play well, and Niederreiter is one of the more underrated players on this hockey team.
Teuvo Teravainen has been awfully quiet in this series for Carolina. He needs to make an impact in Game 4 for this hockey team. Teravainen being on the score sheet in Game 4 would go well for them.
Antti Raanta finished the game with 30 saves in Game 3 for the Hurricanes. He has been very good in this series for this hockey team. Raanta is the projected starting goalie for Game 4 of this series.
New York Rangers Doing Some Home Cooking
Mika Zibanejad scored a power-play goal for the New York Rangers in Game 3. He was more effective on the ice than he was in the first two games. It was his fourth goal of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, and it was Zibanejad’s first of this series.
Tyler Motte also scored an empty-net goal for New York in Game 3. It was his first goal of the 2022 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. He has been a great fourth-liner for this hockey team since being acquired from the trade deadline, and Motte has been very underrated for this hockey team.
Igor Shesterkin finished with 43 saves for the Rangers in Game 3. He has been much better in this series for this hockey team after struggling in Round 1 vs. the Pittsburgh Penguins. Shesterkin is projected to be the starting goalie in this hockey game against the Carolina Hurricanes.
