Seattle is coming off a pretty impressive season and they have been at their best this time. Despite being a new team, the Kraken did well to make it to the playoffs. Seattle rebounded well and broke their losing skid to equalize this series against the Avalanche. With three games remaining, the Kraken will need to win two. Seattle will bank on their powerful offense to get some early goals against the Colorado Avalanche. However, they need to build on their defense.
Players to watch: Justin Schultz D 14 1, 26 4, 40), 5, Jaden Schwartz C 14 2, 26 2, 40), 4, Alex Wennberg C 14 1, 26 2, 40), 3
The Avalanche is currently sitting in the same situation and they must win to hold the upper hand in this series. Colorado was taken by surprise against the Kraken but they scored eight goals in their last two. The Avalanche scored two goals last game and gave up three to the Kraken. Mikko Rantanen and Nathan MacKinnon are the bright spots alongside Artturi Lehkonen. The Avalanche has been a tough team and will not give up with ease.
