Red Wings vs Kraken Betting Prediction

Seattle comes into this game after a pretty long road trip, where they ended with two straight wins over Boston and the Islanders. The Kraken have had some problems scoring consistently this year, but their defense has been pretty good. Detroit has lost two of their last three games, but they played decently well in those losses to Vancouver and Edmonton. The Red Wings are one of the higher scoring teams in the NHL this year and they are right around .500 on the road, while Seattle is 11-9-4 at home. I liked how the Wings played defensively in their last game against Calgary and I think they get another win here. Take Detroit in this game.
