Seattle Kraken vs Anaheim Ducks 02/11/2022 Betting Odds:
The Kraken showed a lot of promise when they got in step with several of the NHL’s leading teams. The team looked confident and ready when they hosted the Coyotes. The end result, however, left Seattle dismayed anew. Coach Dave Hakstol said his team was not “sharp with the puck” against the Coyotes but also added that the team is not making any excuses. The chance to redeem themselves and prove that they are moving on the right track comes Friday in California. Although underdogs against the Ducks, Seattle believes they still have enough tools to pull off a stunning win on the road.
Players to watch: J. McCann C (G 19, A 11, PTS 30), J. Eberle RW (G 12, A 14, PTS 26), Y. Gourde C (G 10, A 15, PTS 25).
The Ducks will be playing their first game of the month after an extended break. Their last game resulted in a loss to Detroit in OT, and while it has been since the painful finish, the team is still eager to use it as fire to bounce back against the Kraken. The top four spots in the Pacific Division remain tight with the Ducks being at the bottom of the said race. They trail Los Angeles, Calgary and Vegas but are in a good position to make a significant run as they begin the second half of the season. The team is set to hit a three-game road trip after Friday’s game. The Kraken, on paper, appears to be an easy opponent. But the Ducks know that the expansion team is also on a mission. It will be an interesting affair on the rink.
Players to watch: T. Terry C (G 25, A 16, PTS 41), T. Zegras C (G 12, A 20, PTS 32), R. Getzlaf C (G 3, A 24, PTS 27).
