The Anaheim Ducks and Seattle Kraken meet Tuesday in NHL action at the Climate Pledge Arena. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
The Anaheim Ducks are averaging 2.5 goals per game and are scoring on 15.6 percent of their power play opportunities. Trevor Zegras leads Anaheim with 20 goals, Troy Terry has 30 assists and Frank Vatrano has 180 shots on goal. Defensively, the Anaheim Ducks are allowing 4.1 goals per game and are killing 73.3 percent of their opponent’s power plays. John Gibson has given up 157 goals on 1,613 shots faced, and Anthony Stolarz has allowed 51 goals on 494 shots.
The Seattle Kraken are averaging 3.5 goals per game and are scoring on 19.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Jared McCann leads Seattle with 30 goals, Vince Dunn has 37 assists, and Oliver Bjorkstrand has 156 shots on goal. Defensively, the Seattle Kraken are allowing 3.1 goals per game and are killing 74.2 percent of their opponent’s power plays. Philipp Grubauer has given up 71 goals on 679 shots faced, and Martin Jones has allowed 114 goals on 1,020 shots.
The Ducks are 14-38 in their last 52 road games and 25-62 in their last 87 overall. The Kraken are 5-1 in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-0 in their last 4 overall. The under is 4-0-1 in Ducks last 5 overall. The under is 15-7-3 in Kraken last 25 home games. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Anaheim Ducks continue to go nowhere fast, their defensive effort is a joke, and they don’t win on the road. The Seattle Kraken are coming off a strong week and their offense should have a field day against that Ducks defense. Only one way to really go here, and that’s for me to side with the Kraken and the PL for max betting value.
