Through 56 games, the Detroit Red Wings goal and overall scoring leader is Dylan Larkin with 58 points. He has reached his mark of 27 goals, on a shooting percentage of 16.1%. So far, 19.0% of his goals have come during power play time. Behind him is Tyler Bertuzzi, who has 24 assists to go along with his 24 goals. While on the ice, his offensive production has led to a plus-minus rating of +4.0. Detroit's top goalie is Alex Nedeljkovic, who is giving up an average of 3.15 goals per game.

Through 62 games, Seattle's leading goal scorer is Jared McCann. With his 23 goals and 12 assists, he is the second in overall points, coming in at 35. On the season, he is turning 15.4% of his shots into goals. In addition, the Kraken have benefited from the strong play of Yanni Gourde, who is teams overall leader in points. In Seattle's 62 games, he has come up with 14 goals on a shooting percentage of 15.1%. However, when on the ice, the Kraken are -11 in scoring differential. Seattle's top goalie is Philipp Grubauer, who is giving up an average of 3.23 goals per game. In his 45 games played, he has come up with a quality start just 25% percent of the time.

This matchup features two teams that have struggled to slow down their opponents all year long. This poor defensive play is leading to losses for each unit as both the Red Wings and Kraken are 1-4 over their last 5 games. I recommend making a bet on the over, as both sides come into the game playing well on offense, with their defense being the reason for not picking up wins.
