Seattle Kraken vs Colorado Avalanche 4/30/2023 Analysis, Predictions and Picks

West 1st Round – Game 7, Series tied 3-3

The Seattle Kraken are headed to game seven against the Colorado Avalanche after a tough 4-1 loss in game six ended their two-game winning streak. Philipp Grubauer, who has been a top performer for Seattle all season, struggled in the net, allowing three goals on 38 shots in just over 58 minutes of play. The offense was lackluster as well, with Vince Dunn being the only player to provide any spark with one goal and three shots in over 20 minutes of ice time.

Despite the loss, Seattle has had a solid offensive performance throughout the season, averaging 3.52 goals per game on 30.5 shots, while also boasting a reliable defense that has allowed just 3.07 goals per game. Jared McCann has been a standout for the Kraken offense with 70 points and a team-high 40 goals on 210 shots. Additionally, Vince Dunn leads the team with 50 assists this season.

  • The total stayed UNDER in 5 of Seattle’s last 5 games on the road against Colorado.
  • The Kraken is 7-3 SU in their last 10 games against an opponent in the Central Division.
  • The Seattle Kraken is 6-1 SU in their last 7 games played on a Sunday.

Seattle Kraken vs Colorado Avalanche. The NHL pick for this game is the Colorado Avalanche. In an intense series that has seen both teams exchange wins, the Colorado Avalanche took command in game six with a dominating performance. With the series now tied at 3-3, the Avalanche have momentum on their side and are expected to carry it into the decisive game seven on Sunday. The game will be played on Colorado’s home ice, where they have a strong track record this season. It’s likely that the Avalanche will take advantage of this home-ice advantage and come out with a win to advance to the next round. My prediction is that the Avalanche will win convincingly, with a score of 4-1 in their favor.
