Summary:

The reigning NHL champions Tampa Bay Lightning are hosting the newly established Seattle Kraken on Friday night

Details:

The reigning back-to-back champions Tampa Bay Lightning are currently standing in 3rd place in the Atlantic Division and sixth in the Eastern Conference with an 11-4-3 record.

This will be the fourth straight home game for the Lightning who are 6-3-2 in Amalie Arena.

The Lightning dominated the Philadelphia Flyers in the last game winning by 4-0.

Andrei Vasilevskiy made 34 saves for his first clean sheet of the season, the 27th of his career.

Both Zach Bogosian and Corey Perry scored after a while which is another sign that Jon Cooper’s team is picking up its form. Bogosian stopped a 62-game goal drought, dating to a goal against Detroit on Jan. 12, 2020 when he was with Buffalo. Perry got his 387th career goal after going 37 games without one.

Steven Stamkos had a goal and two assists for the Lightning, who have won points in 11 of the last 12 games.

As expected the Seattle Kraken have a tough first season as they are at the bottom of the Pacific Division and one spot above it in the Western Conference with a 6-12-1 record and only the Arizona Coyotes beneath them.

Still, Dave Hakstol’s team has shown that they can surprise anyone as they won the last two against a couple of the best teams in the East snapping a six-game losing streak.

After a 5-2 win over the Washington Capitals on Sunday the Kraken defeated the Carolina Hurricanes 2-1 on Tuesday.

Phillip Grubauer’s performance was a key for Kraken’s win as he made 35 saves. Marcus Johansson scored with 3:08 remaining to give the Kraken their second back-to-back win this season.

The Kraken have gone 1-6-1 away from home. Seattle averages 11.4 penalty minutes per game, the fourth-most in the NHL.

Key facts

  • Brayden Point, Erik Cernak, Nikita Kucherov and Brent Seabrook will be out for Tampa Bay
  • This will be the first game ever between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Seattle Kraken
  • Both teams are on two-game winning streaks

The Seattle Kraken have shown a huge improvement in the past two games against Eastern Conference top contenders but to make it three wins in a row is a little too much, especially if the length of the trip to the southeast is taken into consideration.

Tampa Bay is sixth in the East which is way too low for them and a win over one of the worst teams in the league will be a great boost to get closer to the top.

Placing a bet on Tampa bay win is an easy and safe choice.
