Randy’s Free Pick
The Colorado Avalanche have been hit or miss these last couple of weeks, and I'm not sure how much I like them on the end of a back to back. The Seattle Kraken not only have the rest advantage, but they've been playing excellent hockey over the last month or so. Getting the Kraken at home in the underdog role against anybody is hard to pass up given their current form. I'll take the home dog.
