Kraken at Hawks: Win the Game, Win the Series- Everything You Need to Know

Published April 7, 2022 at 12:04

With the Hawks officially out of the playoffs, the Kraken can't be too far behind, especially after their loss to St. Louis, last night. Chris Driedger was in net for that one, so it's pretty safe to assume Chicago will face Philipp Grubauer (15-28-5). He and Lankinen haver the same SV% of .888, with Driedger not far ahead at .899 and Delia at .902. Goaltending for Seattle has been inconsistent, so as long as our guys keep getting pucks to the net, chances are some are bound to go in. Of course, the same can be said for Chicago, who will have to watch out for the Kraken's top goal scorers McCann, Eberle, and Gourde.
On paper, Chicago is still a better team. While Seattle isn't too far behind with games won (22 to Chicago's 24), they have 42 regulation losses to Chicago's 35. Tonight should actually be a really good game, considering neither team can benefit from a win. I like Seattle, and not having the anxiety over watching a «must win» game is always a bonus in my book.
This is our final game of the series, and it's tied 1-1. Blackhawks took the first game, 4-2. Kraken got the second in a S/0, 3-2. Fun fact - Fleury was in net for both games, so no matter what, at least we'll have the advantage of a brand new goalie for them to face. Let's Go Hawks!
