Seattle Kraken Preview

The Seattle Kraken are 26-12-4 this season after they defeated the Chicago Blackhawks by a score of 8-5 in their last game. Seattle out shot Chicago by a total of 30-27 and went 0-2 on the power play in the win. The Seattle Kraken are averaging 3.76 goals per game, 3.07 goals against per game, 21.1% on the power play, and 68.7% on the penalty kill. Andre Burakovsky has led the Kraken with 12 goals, 24 assists, and 94 shots on goal this season. The projected starting goalie for Seattle is Martin Jones, who is 21-5-3 this season with a 2.76 goals against average and a .895 save percentage.


Tampa Bay is 39-12 in their last 51 games against the Pacific and 5-1 in their last 6 games following a win. The over is 2-0-3 in Tampa Bay’s last 5 games. Seattle is 8-0 in their last 8 games and 6-0 in their last 6 games against the Eastern Conference. The under is 11-3-1 in Seattle’s last 15 home games.


These two teams come into this game with very similar point totals and have been playing very good hockey lately. Tampa Bay is on a three game winning streak, while Seattle has won eight games in a row and will be on home ice. Tampa Bay has a nice advantage on special teams and I think that will be the difference maker. I like the Lightning to get the road win.
