  Seattle Kraken vs San Jose Sharks

The Seattle Kraken currently hold a 21-18-10 record, but a recent slump of only five wins in their last 10 games has seen them slip to fifth place in the Pacific Division. It’s been a challenging season for the Kraken, particularly on the offensive front, as they’ve managed to score a modest 2.84 goals per game. Despite the offensive struggles, the team has found solace in their defence, which has stepped up admirably, allowing a commendable 2.88 goals per game.

On the flip side, the San Jose Sharks find themselves in a more daunting position with a 13-32-4 record and the undesirable distinction of holding the worst record in the Pacific Division. The team’s recent performance, marked by only four wins in their last 10 games, has added to their struggles. Offensively, the Sharks have faced significant challenges, scoring a meagre 2.08 goals per game. However, the defensive woes have compounded their difficulties, with the team allowing a concerning 3.92 goals per game.
