Canucks vs. Kraken Prediction

I’m on the Canucks here. I wish I could say Seattle had value as a home underdog, but the Kraken have still been wildly inconsistent and hard to back even as a home underdog. Vancouver, despite a bump in the road, remains one of the best teams in the NHL and I think they pick up another win over the Kraken as they’re 7-3 in the 10 all-time meetings between these two teams.
