Preview

The Seattle Kraken the road and will visit the Washington Capitals on Saturday. These teams already met once so far this season and the Kraken beat the Caps 5-2 at home.

SEATTLE KRAKEN

The Kraken ended their 7 game losing streak when they beat the Predators 4-3 at home last Wednesday. Seattle are 7.19 on the road and have a 17-34-5 record overall ranking 8th in the Pacific.

Jared McCann leads the team with 33 total points, 21 goals and 12 assists. Yanni Gourde is the leader in assists with 19 for Seattle.

In their last 10 games the Kraken are 2-8, averaging 2.2 goals, 3.7 assists, three penalties and 7.1 penalty minutes while giving up 4 goals per game with an .872 save percentage.

WASHINGTON CAPITALS

The Capitals are 13-16 at home and have a 29-19-9 record overall ranking 4th in the Metropolitan. In their last game they beat the Hurricanes 4-0 at home. Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov scored on the power play, Vitek Vanecek stopped all 36 shots he faced and the Washington Capitals snapped a three-game losing streak

Evgeny Kuznetsov leads the Capitals in assists with 35 this season. Alex Ovechkin has 33 goals and 65 points for Washington.

In their last 10 games the Capitals are 4-6, averaging 3.1 goals, 4.9 assists, 3.9 penalties and 9.5 penalty minutes while giving up 3.1 goals per game with a .896 save percentage.

BETTING TRENDS

Seattle are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games.

Seattle are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

Washington are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games at home.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Washington's last 7 games.

Prediction

It's hard to trus in any of these teams on this moment. The Kraken have lost 8 of their last 10 games and the Capitals are 1-4 in their last 5 at home. I think the best way to go here is taking Seattle +1.5, they're 15-11 ATS on the road this season and the Caps 10-19 ATS at home.

PICK: Kraken +1.5 (-120)
