Kraken vs. Stars Prediction

I’m on the under here. Despite both teams’ inconsistencies as of late, the one constant has actually been solid goaltending with these groups each giving up two goals or less in a start minus empty-netters. I think this could be a 3-1 or 3-2 kind of game, so I’m on the under here.
