Dallas Stars vs Seattle Kraken Betting Preview
Dallas Stars Preview
The Dallas Stars are heading into game four of their NHL playoffs series against the Seattle Kraken with a sense of urgency. After a tough 7-2 loss in game three, the Stars need to bounce back and show their resilience in order to even up the series.
One area where the Stars have excelled in the playoffs is their scoring. They average 3.44 goals per game, which is the seventh in the NHL playoffs amongst the NHL teams. Additionally, their powerplay has been dominant, converting on 31.2% of their opportunities, which ranks fifth in the NHL playoffs.
However, the Stars will need to continue to lean on their scoring abilities if they hope to defeat the Kraken in game four. This Dallas Stars game is crucial for their playoff hopes, and fans can expect them to come out with a strong offensive performance. It will be interesting to see if they can convert their scoring chances and even up the series.
Seattle Kraken Preview
The Seattle Kraken are heading into game four of their series against the Dallas Stars with a 2-1 lead. Their success so far can be attributed to their solid defense, as they are fifth in the NHL playoffs in goals against average with 2.90 and have a penalty kill percentage of 88.5%, which is second. The Kraken will look to continue their strong defensive play and capitalize on their opportunities to score, as they average 3.2 goals per game in the playoffs.
However, the Kraken may be without the services of forward Jared McCann, who is day-to-day on the NHL injury report. This could be a concern for the Kraken, as McCann has played a key role in their team’s success this season. Nonetheless, the Kraken will look to other players to step up in his absence and secure a win in game four.
If the NHL standings told people the truth about the playoffs, Seattle wouldn’t be in this situation. They have defied the odds and have a lead in the series. The question is if they can continue that success and take a stranglehold against Dallas.
