The league’s newest team, The Kraken are desperate for a win here after dropping 6 in a row. While the home team, Dallas Stars will be looking to rebound strong after their 4 game win streak was put to an end on Sunday.
Seattle’s New Year resolutions haven’t came to fruition so far, as they’ve yet to win a game, for a matter of fact they haven’t won since December 4th.
Offensively speaking, The Kraken are ranked second to last on shots, and 22nd for goals per matchup; by the numbers they’re averaging 28.1 shots, resulting in 2.8 goals per tilt. Over and above, their powerplay is ranked 16th, by capitalizing 19.1% of the time.
Defensively, Seattle boasts the 3rd ranked shot defense by only allowing 29.2 shots on average, but are somehow letting in 3.7 goals per game. In extension, poor goaltending has plagued The Kraken so far, resulting in lopsided stat counts.
Moreover, Seattle’s penalty killing unit is ineffectively stopping teams at 78.2% rate, which captures them 21st place.
The Stars we’re rolling to end the year and start the New Year, unfortunately their streak grinded to a halt against St Louis. Shockingly, Dallas’ last three losses all have came by The Blues.
Offensively, The Stars are only scoring 2.8 goals on 30 shots per matchup, which rank 20th and 19th, dreadfully. However, Dallas’ powerplay is amongst the leagues best at 6th, by scoring on 25.8% of opportunities.
Defensively speaking, Dallas is ranked 15th for goals against, and 11th for shots against; made possible by 2.9 goals, on 30.8 shots per outing. Additionally, The Stars PK% is suffering at 78.8, which ranks 20th in the NHL.
Important to note, The Stars are one of the more elite home squads this season, as they boast a 13-3-1 record in American Airlines Center.

Free Seattle Kraken vs. Dallas Stars NHL Prediction
In this tilt, we have two Western Conference foes headed in complete opposite directions. The Kraken cannot capture a win, and Dallas has only lost to St. Louis in a month and a half.
That being said, upsets happen constantly and very well could in this matchup. Seattle has a very stout shot defense, and if their goaltenders step it up, they have a chance.
These teams have yet to play, and what better way to start off their relationship with a bitter upset.
