The Seattle Kraken await at Climate Pledge Arena for their streaking opponent, The Philadelphia Flyers. Unfortunately for Seattle fans, they’ve only picked up one win in their last 5 games played, while The Flyers are winners of 4 of their last 5.
Philadelphia began the year in shambles, but have since rebounded with dominant play heading into Christmas. Question is, can they continue it past the break?
On the offensive glass, The Flyers are averaging 2.7 goals, on 31.5 shots per outing. Resulting in a rank of 25th and 17th, dreadfully. Additionally, their powerplay numbers are suffering, as they’re only capitalizing on 15.9% of their chances.
Defensively, unlike their offensive powerplay, their PK squad is a noble 11th in the league, shutting down teams an impressive 81.5% of the time.
Unfortunately though, they’re currently a poor 31st for shots, and 22nd for goals against; these travesty’s made possible by allowing an atrocious 3.2 goals, on 34.7 shots per matchup.
The Kraken’s first year in the league has started off slow, unlike the most recent expansion, The Golden Knights. However, they have significant hope, in an amazing fan base, and a stout defense.
Offensively speaking, Seattle’s only averaging 2.8 goals, on 27.9 shots per matchup. These stats equal league rankings of 19th, and 30th combined. Additionally, their PP% is lousy at 17.5%, which also ranks 22nd in the NHL.
On the defensive board, they astoundingly rank 3rd on shots against per game, by only allowing 28.7 on average. Unfortunately, they falter from there, as they rank 30th in goals, and 19th on PK%.
To boot, their number three shot defense, and number thirty goal average, only points to one thing and that’s poor goaltending. If Seattle expects to make something of their first year, they must learn to defend the net as much as possible.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Philadelphia is 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.
- The total has gone OVER in 4 out of Philadelphia’s last 5 games played.
- Seattle is 1-5 SU in their last 6 games.
- The total has gone OVER in 10 of Seattle’s last 12 games played at home.
Free Philadelphia Flyers vs. Seattle Kraken NHL Prediction
Typically after Christmas, we see a lot of overs and it started tonight with three games played and all effectively cashed the over. In addition, these games combined a breathtaking 33 goals across all three matchups.
Although, there’s a ton of uncertainty with rosters day by day, this game appears to be less effected then others with less then 10 combined players out due to protocol, compared to others in the twenties.
With everything going on, The Flyers shouldn’t have an issue getting past this Kraken squad, and should continue their Pre-Christmas momentum, Wednesday night.
