The Seattle Kraken dream of a first playoff finish in franchise history is still alive, as they come into this crucial stage of the regular season sitting eighth in the Western Conference. They have won four of their last ten, and have gone 17-15-4 at the Climate Pledge Arena this term.

The Kraken should be full of confidence coming into this game, as they picked up a much-needed win at home on Thursday evening. It was a strong display by Seattle, as they landed a 4-1 home success against the Ducks.

Meanwhile, the LA Kings remain in a top-eight place in the West, but their form appears to be faltering at this crucial stage. They have now suffered consecutive defeats in the NHL. However, they still have a 13-point advantage over the side sitting in ninth.

On the road, the Kings have gone 18-13-6 this term, with their most recent game away from home seeing them lose 2-0 against the Edmonton Oilers. A response will be needed on Saturday, but their place in the playoffs already looks nearly assured.


This will be a high-stakes matchup in the Western Conference on Saturday. However, we will be siding with the Kraken, who looked back to somewhere near their best on Thursday evening. But, we expect a close game between the rivals.
