Rangers vs Hurricanes NHL Puck Betting Prediction: As they do on most nights, New York has an edge in the goaltending duel as Henrik Lundqvist (7-2-2 GAA 1.80) faces Cam Ward (5-5 GGA 2.40) in the netminding matchup tonight. New York is 6-1-1 at home while Carolina is 4-4-0 on the road this season.
