The Seattle Kraken and Philadelphia Flyers meet Monday in NHL action at the Wells Fargo Center. The Seattle Kraken look for a win to build on their 1-1-1 record. The Philadelphia Flyers need a bounce back showing after losing their opener to the Canucks.

The Seattle Kraken are averaging 2.67 goals per game and are scoring on 33.3 percent of their power play opportunities. Brandon Tanev leads Seattle with three goals, Joonas Donskoi has two assists and Ryan Donato has seven shots on goal. Defensively, the Seattle Kraken are allowing three goals per game and are killing 80 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Philipp Grubauer has given up nine goals on 85 shots faced.

The Philadelphia Flyers are averaging four goals per game and are scoring on 33.3 percent of their power play opportunities. Joel Farabee leads Philadelphia with one goal, Ryan Ellis has two assists and Claude Giroux has eight shots on goal. Defensively, the Philadelphia Flyers are allowing four goals per game and are killing 50 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Carter Hart has allowed four goals on 39 shots faced.

The Flyers are 1-4 in their last 5 games as a favorite and 5-12 in their last 17 home games. The over is 3-0-1 in Flyers last 4 home games. The over is 19-6-1 in Flyers last 26 games as a favorite.

The Philadelphia Flyers looked very sloppy in their season opener, and they weren’t very good at home last season. This is a lot of respect for a Flyers team that may have the talent edge here, but hasn’t produced the results to be laying these sorts of prices. Also, the Seattle Kraken have given us flashes through three games, and they have some gamers on the offensive side. I’ll take a shot with the Kraken and the big plus money.
