On Thursday, April 6, 2023, at 10:30 PM ET, the Arizona Coyotes will face off against the Seattle Kraken at the Climate Pledge Arena in WA for an NHL showdown. The Kraken recently dominated the Coyotes, winning 8-1, extending Arizona’s losing streak to eight games (0-6-2). The Coyotes have been struggling for some time now and have lost their first two matches this month by a total score of 15-3. They currently sit in sixth place in the Western Conference’s wild-card rankings, nine points behind Vancouver.

In the previous match against the Kraken, the Coyotes showed some fight when Lawson Crouse scored his 23rd goal of the year at 4:44 in the second period to narrow the gap to 2-1. However, Seattle took control of the game, scoring six consecutive goals to secure a convincing victory. The Coyotes have only scored five goals in their last three matches, and their average of 2.40 goals per game on the road this season ranks 28th overall in the league. They also rank 22nd in power play efficiency, converting only 19.6% of their opportunities.

However, in his last two games, Vejmelka has conceded nine goals in total. Overall, the Coyotes have given up a staggering 25 goals in their last four games, with an average of 3.75 goals per game on the road.

The Seattle Kraken have had a strong start this week, winning against Vancouver and Phoenix on Tuesday and Monday, respectively, with both games ending in a 5-2 scoreline. The team is currently leading the Western Conference wild-card standings, and at home, they have an impressive record of 24-12-2 this season. In the game against Vancouver, Seattle fell behind early, but the team rallied back with three consecutive goals to secure the victory. On Monday, the Kraken continued their strong form, scoring six unanswered goals. Jordan Eberle had a fantastic game, contributing an assist and scoring a goal. The Kraken ranks fourth in the league for goals scored per game, with an average of 3.53, and 21st in power-play percentage with 19.9%. Over the past 10 games, the team has scored an average of 3.80 goals.

Martin Jones secured the win against Vancouver, stopping 16 shots, but Philipp Grubauer will start in goal for the Kraken. Grubauer has a record of 16-13-4 this season, with a 2.99 goals-against average and .890 save percentage. Over the past five games, he has let in 11 goals.

However, the team has had excellent goaltending in their last ten games, allowing an average of just 2.60 goals per game.

Arizona Coyotes vs Seattle Kraken. The NHL pick for this game is the Seattle Kraken. This game was expected to be a close contest, but Seattle’s dominant performance against Phoenix on Monday has shifted the momentum in their favor. However, playing back-to-back games might take a toll on the Kraken, potentially making them a bit fatigued for this game. Despite this, a win in this match would secure Seattle’s first-ever postseason spot, which is sure to energize the crowd and the team. On the other hand, the Coyotes are struggling, losing their last eight games, three of which were by significant margins. They have also allowed a total of 25 goals over their last four games. All signs point to an easy win for Seattle. Even if they concede 1.5 goals, they are still predicted to win (-135). My prediction is a final score of 7-5 in favor of the Seattle Kraken.
