This is a play on the CAROLINA HURRICANES for our NHL Monday Breakaway. While Tampa Bay was in essentially do or die mode last night and failed to get it done, Carolina is in the same position tonight with the edge of being on home ice. The Hurricanes lost the first game of this series despite outshooting the Capitals 29-17 and then dropped Game Two in overtime but a change in venue is big here. For the first time since 2009, the Hurricanes will have a playoff game at home, one that should create both a bit of nostalgia and a frenzied atmosphere for Game Three. The Hurricanes are 8-2 in their last 10 games as a favorite of -110 to -150. Washington has now defeated Carolina in all six meetings this season but four of those were at home and the two road wins were both by one with one of those coming in a shootout. Washington is 5-10 after a home game where both teams score three or more goals this season while going 6-13 in their last 19 playoff games as underdogs of +110 to +150. First, we play on home teams after allowing four goals or more in a loss to a division rival going up against an opponent after a home game where both teams scored three or more goals. This situation is 32-11 (74.4 percent) since 1996. Second, we play against underdogs off a win by one goal over a division rival going up against an opponent off two or more consecutive road losses. This situation is 78-27 (74.3 percent) since 1996. 10* (32) Carolina Hurricanes
