Seattle is only in its second season in the NHL, but it is already claiming the highest places, demonstrating hockey of solid quality. The Kraken played especially powerfully in the first half of January when they gave out an 8-match winning streak with a total score of 41:16. It was problematic to continue to beat everyone in a row, so now Dave Hackstall's wards showed a slight decline. The Kraken has suffered four defeats in the last six meetings, beating only New Jersey and Vancouver - 4:3 and 6:1, respectively. Seattle is currently ranked fourth in the Western Conference standings.
Columbus Blue Jackets
For Columbus, the current regular season is going exceptionally severely. The Jackets can be congratulated on the last place in the Eastern Conference standings since they are 11 points behind their nearest competitor, while they have scored only 33 points in 49 previous matches. Now Brad Larsen's wards could be better, confirmed by their recent results: in the seven last meetings, they suffered five defeats, and only San Jose and Edmonton could beat - 5:3 and 3:2, respectively. The day before, Columbus failed in the away match with Vancouver – 2:5.
Expert Betting Tips
Seattle and Columbus, at the moment, are rivals of entirely different levels. In terms of lost points, the Kraken is now the Western Conference's leader, which speaks of their strength and the highest ambitions. The situation is much more problematic for the Jackets. They are hopelessly located at the end of the Eastern Conference standings, having no real chance of reaching the playoff zone.
We have to expect high performance from the upcoming confrontation. Seattle spends the entire regular season having a lot of fun. They scored 125 goals in the last 18 meetings with their participation (6.94 on average per game), which is a very high indicator even by the standards of the NHL. Columbus also is good, as in the last five matches with their participation, 35 goals took place (7 on average per game).
