Domingue vs Mrazek. Domingue has an awful 3.74 GAA while Mrazek owns a respectable 2.74 GAA while playing much more games. Devils are 12-15 ML away. Devils are dead last in the Metro and have no chance for playoffs. They are using backup goalie as well. NJ has been competitive going 3-4 past 7 games away. Carolina is 18-9 at home. This team wins at home against lesser opponents. They avg 3.1 gpg while only giving up 2.8 gpg. They sit 6th in a very crowded and competitive Metro division and have a opportunity for postseason play. Prediction- I've got Carolina all night on this game. No way they take this game lightly. This is a must win against a bottom feeder.
New Jersey is 9-4 their last 13 games against Carolina, 3-8 their last 11 games against the Metropolitan Division and 0-5 their last 5 games played on a Friday. Carolina is 6-2 their last 8 games at home but only 4-8 their last 12 games against the Eastern Conference. Considering the direction of both teams and that the home team is 6-1 the last 7 meetings, I like Carolina in this game !
