Pick

Colorado comes into this game struggling over their last seven games, but they will play a Seattle team that is also struggling and is only 2-4 at home. These two teams have played twice already this season, with Colorado winning 4-1 and Seattle winning 4-3. The Avalanche have allowed 12 goals in their last two games and they have allowed 8, 4, 3, and 7 goals in their last four. I know both teams are struggling, but I am going to take Seattle here. The Avalanche have been a mess defensively and I think Seattle will take advantage. Take the Kraken to get the win.
