St. Louis Blues vs Seattle Kraken prediction

The Seattle Kraken are getting the benefit of the doubt because they're at home, but it's going to take more than that for me to lay juice with a team that's lost 4 of their last 5 games. The St. Louis Blues are putting together a nice week with three straight wins, and the offense has caught fire during this winning stretch. The Seattle Kraken have had issues keeping the puck out of the net lately, and they've lost 5 of the 7 meetings all time against the Blues. The value is with the Blues in the underdog role. Give me my plus money.
