Vancouver Canucks vs Seattle Kraken 01/01/2022 – Needless to say, the move to place Bruce Boudreau as the head coach of the Vancouver Canucks was a stroke of genius.

When: Saturday, January 1, 10:00 PM ET
Where: Climate Pledge Arena, Seattle, Washington
Vancouver Canucks vs Seattle Kraken 01/01/2022 Betting Odds:
If not for the 2-1 shootout loss on Thursday at Los Angeles, Bruce Boudreau would have entered the record books. Prior to the defeat, Boudreau led the Canucks to seven straight victories to tie the record for the longest streak for a coach starting with a new team. The loss was a spoiler to Vancouver especially with the team fighting for a better spot in the standings.
Players to watch: J.T. Miller C (G 11, A 24, PTS 35), Q. Hughes D (G 2, A 25, PTS 27), C. Garland RW (G 9, A 13, PTS 22).
The misery continues for the Seattle Kraken. The team dropped its back-to-back games against Philadelphia and Calgary, respectively, making them winless in their last four games. The shorthanded lineup obviously did not help the cause of the expansion team, which continues to find its identity in the team. The Kraken could only hope to gain some sort of traction when they host the Canucks on New Year’s Day.
Players to watch: J. Eberle RW (G 12, A 10, PTS 22), J. Schwartz LW (G 12, A 10, PTS 22), J. McCann C (G 13, A 6, PTS 19).
