Philadelphia Flyers vs Seattle Kraken 12/29/2021 – Just when the Seattle Kraken thought their season could not get any worse, another blow was handed to them as forward Brandon Tanev is reported to have suffered a season-ending anterior cruciate ligament injury. Without their vocal leader, the Kraken will be tested at home when the Philadelphia Flyers visit them on Wednesday inside the Climate Pledge Arena. But despite the disadvantage, Seattle is being offered as favorites in the latest NHL Odds with a -118 moneyline price. The match is set at 10:00 PM Eastern Time and will be shown live on ESPN+ and NHL.TV.

Philadelphia Flyers vs Seattle Kraken 12/29/2021 Betting Odds:
Just like the majority of the teams in the league, the Flyers are also affected by the current COVID outbreak. But the team hopes to keep their offensive surge when they visit Seattle on Wednesday. Philadelphia is currently on a season-best five-game point streak as the squad continues to thrive under interim coach Mike Yeo. The road trip will be a crucial one for the Flyers, who are currently at the sixth place in the Metropolitan Division. Uncertainty is surrounding the NHL in general, prompting general manager Chuck Fletcher to preach the importance of being ready to play. “As we’ve seen, every morning you wake up, you don’t know what’s going to happen to you that day. Hopefully, everybody that’s on the trip will be mentally and physically prepared to go,” Fletcher said.
Players to watch: C. Giroux C (G 11, A 14, PTS 25), C. Atkinson RW (G 12, A 8, PTS 20), T. Konecny RW (G 5, A 12, PTS 17).
The Kraken lamented missing the services of Brandon Tanev, who is “a huge part of our dressing room and a big part of what we’ve been doing on the ice,” according to head coach Dave Hakstol. Apart from that, rust could also play a factor as the team is about to play their first game after the NHL is forced to go on a break due to the COVID outbreak. A handful of players remain on the league’s safety protocol, making it even more challenging to protect home ice.
Players to watch: J. Eberle RW (G 12, A 9, PTS 21), J. Schwartz LW (G 6, A 14, PTS 20), J. McCann C (G 12, A 5, PTS 17).
