Penguins-Kraken Preview

The Penguins got back in the win column Saturday with a 4-1 win over Vancouver and will look to extend that tonight in their first visit to Seattle.

Jake Guentzel and Sidney Crosby have been red hot for the Penguins. Guentzel has five goals in his last five games and Crosby has two goals and seven assists for nine points in the same time span to lead the Penguins.

For Seattle, Ryan Donato has picked up his game lately, with three goals in his last five contests while Joonas Donskoi has five assists and Jamie Oleksiak has five points in the last five.

The Kraken have been sneaky good lately, going 5-1-1 in their last seven games. They are playing a disruptive game in the neutral zone attacking the puck when they don’t have it and flying through the neutral zone with speed when they do.

A couple former Penguins have had an impact in that regard, as both Brandon Tanev and Jared McCann are starting to put up numbers to help the Kraken with depth scoring.

Wait? We like the Penguins to win a game in which we are predicting them to not score for a certain period of time? Exactly. The Penguins play a LOT of games to 0-0 in the first period. In fact, The under 0.5 goals market has hit in seven of the last eight games in which the Penguins have been the favorite to win. It tells you they set their defense and goaltending early and that they’ll generate offense later. This is actually great value considering how often this happens in Penguins games.

Donskoi has been showing off his two way-game of late and it’s leading to points. He has a four-game point streak going, and not surprisingly, the Kraken are 3-0-1 in those games. If Donskoi gets on the board again, it could be enough to keep the good play going for Seattle.

We left this one a little open-ended on purpose. At the time of this preview, the goalies had not been announced yet. Seattle’s goaltending is irrelevant to the equation because neither has been particularly impressive.

However, there is a huge disparity in Pittsburgh’s net these days. If Tristan Jarry gets the start, lay the wood and take the UNDER. If Casey DeSmith gets the nod. Ride the OVER for even money.

We actually think this is a close game. Maybe an overtime or shootout special one way or the other. But, we’ll go with the Penguins.

Prediction: Penguins 3, Kraken 2 (SO) – If Jarry plays; Penguins 4, Kraken 3 (SO) if DeSmith plays.
