Pick

Carolina has started the season playing very well and they have scored five goals or more in three of their first four games. On the other side, Seattle has been horrible on offense, scoring three total goals in their first four games. The Kraken had a ton of chances against Colorado in their last game, but could only find the back of the net one time. Seattle needs to figure out how to score more goals and improve their power play unit, which is at 9.1% right now. I do think Seattle will turn it around, but I will not take them until I see them score some goals. Take the Hurricanes here.
