Oilers vs. Kraken Prediction

I’m on the Oilers here. The Oilers have simply owned this matchup since Seattle’s inception into the league, winning 5 straight and 8 of the last 10 meetings including each of the last 4 meetings in Seattle. The Kraken have brought value to the table in some spots, but I’m afraid this isn’t one of them. Give me the Oilers here.
