Predators vs. Kraken Prediction

I’m on the Predators here. I get that the Preds don’t have their winning streak intact anymore, but they’re still on quite the run with points in 12 straight games. Seattle’s running out of steam, not that they really had much to begin with and it’s feeling like this team is just playing out the string at this point. We’re getting the team in far better form that feels like they’re playing for something at a really good price and I’ll gladly take it with Nashville here.
