The Kraken with another chance to beat at top team tonight after beating
the Capitals on Sunday. They played much better after getting embarrassed at home vs. the Avalanche last week (a game I had the misfortune to see in person).
They've got quite a bit of talent and experience (if maybe lacking in team speed overall), but have just struggled to gel a bit and have played sloppy at times during their 6 game skid. Even when losing, however, they've shown well during long stretches but had some bad luck.
They finally broke out and played well against the Capitals in a solid 5-2 game. Philip Grubauer had been struggling a bit with a sub .900 save percentage, but finally had a dominant game on Sunday.
Hoping they'll get a win streak going (even if unlikely tonight). I think they're still potentially a wild card team if they can play a little better for a stretch.
With all that said, I've been to a few games now, and they're all really a blast, with terrific fan support. If you're in the Seattle area, I highly recommend.
