The Carolina Hurricanes and Seattle Kraken meet Monday in NHL action at the Climate Pledge Arena. The Carolina Hurricanes look to get off to a quick 3-0 start. The Seattle Kraken look to rebound from a 1-1-1 start.

Martin Necas leads Carolina with 2 goals, Andrei Svechnikov has 1 assist and Brent Burns has 8 shots on goal.

The Hurricanes are 1-6 in their last 7 road games and 15-7 in their last 22 overall. The Kraken are 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 19-42 in their last 61 overall.

The Carolina Hurricanes look like a team that’s picked up where they left off last year, and their defense has led the charge through 2 contests. The Seattle Kraken look fun, and they’re scoring a lot of goals, but they’ve also been hard to trust against some of the better teams in the league dating back to last season. I’m just not there where I can back the Kraken, even if we’re getting a nice price with them at home. The Canes are the safer pick. I’ll lay the reasonable juice with them on the road.
