The Seattle Kraken take a trip out to Hockey Town USA for their second and final match-up of the season with the Detroit Red Wings. These two clubs met less than two weeks ago with Seattle coming away with the two points in a 4-2 victory at home.
The Kraken just bumped a three-game skid with a 5-3 victory over the St. Louis Blues and now enter their second contests of a three-game road trip. They’re in tough right now as they fight for the final playoff spot in the Pacific division and could find themselves dropped down to wild card spot before the game even begins.
Overall, their offence has been a pleasant surprise coming off a rough inaugural season up front. If we narrow the scope and focus on the past two months, they have the 8th best offence as Seattle is averaging 3.50 goals scored per game since January 1st.
When it comes to the power play, they haven’t had much success as of late with just a single goal in their last five contests after going 1-for-12 on the man advantage.
Their defence has also tightened up over the past two months, allowing fewer than 3.00 goals against per game since January 1st.
When it comes to their penalty kill, they’ve also improved there as well with seven straight games without a power play goal against. That’s 15 straight kills with a shorthand goal to boot.
In net, it will be between Martin Jones and Philipp Grubauer against the Red Wings. Jones has a 24-10-3 record this season for the Kraken and is 4-4-1 with a 2.33 GAA and a .920 save percentage against Detroit in his career. That being said, Seattle may go with Grubauer for this one as he has a career record of 3-0-1 against the Red Wings which is paired with a 1.72 GAA and solid .937 save percentage.
Detroit Red Wings
The Red Wings are coming off a three straight losses and back-to-back losses to the Ottawa Senators where they allowed six goals against in both losses.
Since January 1st, the Red wings are averaging fewer than 3.00 goals per game but do have an above average power play during that span. Captain Dylan Larkin leads the team with 57 points and finally reached a contract extension with the club in the form of an eight year 69.6 million dollar deal.
Overall, Detroit is allowing over 3.20 goals against per game but after shipping off defender Filip Hronek to the Vancouver Canucks they have gotten weaker on the back end.
When it comes to the penalty kill, they rank 25th in the league since January 1st after allowing two power play goals against in each of their last two games.
In net, Ville Husso has seen the bulk of the starts with a 23-15-5 tally paired with 2.91 GAA and a .904 save percentage on the season. He was in net for all four goals against in the February 18th match-up in Seattle.

Free Seattle Kraken vs. Detroit Red Wings NHL Prediction
Seattle is in the middle of a battle for the final playoff spot in the Pacific and are just five points out from missing the postseason as a whole.
While they’re looking to make their first appearance in the Stanley Cup playoffs, Detroit is trending the opposite direction. That was made clear with the Hronek trade to Vancouver and we could see more pieces shipped out by the March 3rd deadline.
Go with the team that has more to lose and that is looking to continue their winning ways for an important two points.
