The Seattle Kraken remains on course for their first finish in a playoff spot. They come into this crucial game on the road sitting seventh overall, and they have picked up five wins from their previous ten games. Over that period, they have suffered just four defeats in regulation, with a further loss being inflicted in overtime.
Seattle has been strong travelers throughout the season, as they have gone 24-10-4 on the road. Only the Golden Knights have picked up more wins away from home. The Kraken was excellent in their previous game, as they recorded a massive 8-1 home win over the Arizona Coyotes.
Meanwhile, the Vancouver Canucks come into this game in poor recent form, as they have lost each of their previous three games in the NHL. However, over their last ten, they have picked up five wins. At home, they have been steady throughout the season, as they have gone 17-19-2 at Rogers Arena.
But, their recent form would be a pretty big concern. Their most recent loss was suffered at home, as they were easily beaten by the LA Kings. However, the Canucks boast an excellent record against the Kraken in the NHL, as they have picked up six wins from the seven previous meetings.
This could be a tricky game on the road for the Kraken, as they play for the second time in as many days. Therefore, we will take a chance on the Canucks to maintain their excellent head-to-head record against Seattle with a home victory.
