Carolina v Atlanta
View all Radar's tips ¬Ľ
This ice hockey betting tip comes from the NHL and the match between Carolina Hurricanes (31-26-9) and
Atlanta Thrashers (27-28-11).
These two ice hockey teams have met 4 times already this season and on each occasion the Hurricanes
have come out on top.
They are currently 1 point behind Buffalo for the final playoff berth in the East making this a huge game for
The Hurricanes have been in decent form with 3 wins from their last 5 NHL matches.
They were beaten in their last game by Chicago Blackhawks but they rested their number 1 goal tender Cam
Ward who will be back in the side tonight.
Carolina have had 4 days without a game so will be itching to get back on the ice. They should also be well
rested for tonight's encounter.
Keep an eye on Erik Cole who has been on fine form for the Hurricanes. Cole has 6 points in the last 6 games
and twice this season has scored the winning goal against Atlanta.
Atlanta are down to 11th in the Eastern Conference and 7 points adrift of a playoff spot.
The Thrashers have been on a terrible run of form losing 18 of their last 23 ice hockey matches.
They are missing Dustin Byfuglien through injury. He is one of the most productive defenseman in the NHL
with 19 goals and 30 assists and he will be sorely missing by Atlanta.
The Thrashers also have doubts over Jim Slater and Patrice Cormier for tonight's game.
Carolina look worth betting on to make it 5 straight wins over the Thrashers this season and get themselves
back into the playoff spots.
