The Seattle Kraken have done some of their best work recently on the road, and they need to keep winning as they fight for seeding. The Arizona Coyotes have been a mess for much of the season, and playing at home hasn't helped them much lately. The Kraken should roll here, and I'll lay the PL to shave down the price.
