The Seattle Kraken need a win here to rebound from a 1-3-1 start. The Kraken have split their first two home games of the season. The Seattle Kraken are averaging 2 goals per game and are scoring on 20 percent of their power play opportunities. Jared McCann leads Seattle with 2 goals, Vince Dunn has 4 assists, and Andre Burakovsky has 12 shots on goal.

Seattle Kraken Team Facts

  • The Kraken have won the first period in each of their last four home games against Metropolitan Division opponents.
  • The ‘Over 1.5 Goals Period 3’ market has hit in each of the Kraken’s last six games against Metropolitan Division opponents.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Seattle Kraken ranks T28th in the league for goals per game this season (2.00).
  • The Seattle Kraken ranks T6th in the league in penalty kill percentage this season (93.33%).
  • The New York Rangers ranks 8th in the league in power play percentage this season (28.57%).
  • The New York Rangers ranks T25th in the league in penalty kill percentage this season (69.23%).

Randy’s Pick

This price feels a little too cheap when you consider the Kraken have scored 1 or fewer goals in 4 of their first five games. That’s not ideal when going up against this New York Rangers defense that has two veteran, quality goalies. You can make a strong argument the Rangers should be bigger favorites regardless of where the game is played. Give me the Rangers on the road.
