Seattle Kraken vs Minnesota Wild

Fresh off a narrow 4-3 defeat against Winnipeg, the Seattle Kraken find themselves mired in a disappointing season marred by inconsistency. With their playoff hopes dashed and morale low, the Kraken enter this matchup on a disheartening four-game losing streak. Offensively, Seattle has struggled to find their rhythm, averaging a modest 2.59 goals per game. Defensive lapses have also plagued the team, with an average of 2.84 goals conceded per game, highlighting areas for improvement in the offseason.

Conversely, the Minnesota Wild ride the momentum of a solid 3-1 victory over Los Angeles, rebounding from a brief two-game skid with back-to-back wins. Despite their recent success, the Wild have faced their own defensive challenges, conceding an average of 3.16 goals per game. However, their offensive output has been more robust, averaging 3.02 goals per game, providing a glimmer of hope as they aim to secure a playoff berth.
