Kraken vs. Flames Prediction

I’m on the Flames here. I get why you could make a case for the Kraken after Seattle’s put out some of their better performances as of late, but the reality is this Kraken team has still cost you a pretty penny at home as they have never really been a strong home team since their inception into the league a few years ago. Calgary’s playing some of their best hockey of the season right now and have owned this head-to-head matchup over the years. Give me the Flames in this one.
