Kraken vs Flames Betting Prediction

Calgary comes into this game red hot and they are looking for their sixth straight win, while Seattle has won two of their last three games and three of their last five. The Flames should have a ton of momentum coming into this matchup, as they erased a two goal third period deficit in their last win. Seattle played pretty well against Edmonton in the defensive zone, but their offense let them down. The Kraken are only scoring 2.72 goals per game this season, which is not enough to get it done on most nights. I know this run for the Flames won’t last forever, but I like how they are playing and will take them at home.
