Shane’s Free Pick

This is a bad offense in the Kraken going against an awful defense in the Hurricanes. Even though the Hurricanes defense hasn’t been great, they did give up only three goals in their last game and they are going to lockdown again in this game. The Hurricanes are going to get over their season average of 3.86 goals per game and they are going to get over that number here. Back the Hurricanes.
