In a pair of Game 6 matchups Monday, the defending champion Washington Capitals battle the Carolina Hurricanes on the road, while the Dallas Stars host the Nashville Predators.

Washington Capitals (+105) at Carolina Hurricanes (-120), 7 p.m. ET

After jumping out to a 2-0 series lead, it appeared Washington was headed for a sweep, but now the Caps are in a tough fight.

The Hurricanes bounced back with 5-0 and 2-1 victories, but Washington ripped away momentum with a 6-0 Game 5 win.

The Hurricanes are 13-3 SU in their last 16 games as a favorite of -110 to -150. Even though there's no guarantee Carolina goaltender Petr Mrazek is at his best, this has been a home-ice series.

Nashville Predators (+110) at Dallas Stars (-135), 8:30 p.m. ET

After falling behind 2-1 in the series, Dallas dominated the Predators 5-1 in Game 4 and took Game 5 with a 5-3 victory.

Now back in Big D, the Stars look to continue the offensive push, but the Predators are 5-2 SU in their last seven meetings in Dallas and the road team is 7-3 SU in the last 10 meetings. Game 7 here we come.
