Colorado Avalanche vs Seattle Kraken Predictions 4/22/2023


The Seattle Kraken had a golden opportunity to put the Colorado Avalanche in a precarious two-game deficit in their playoff series.


In Game 1, the Kraken wasted no time, scoring their first postseason goal just three minutes and 26 seconds into the game.


They went on to secure a 3-1 victory, defying the odds as significant underdogs at +175 on the road. However, in Game 2, despite holding a 2-0 lead, the Kraken couldn’t maintain their advantage and ended up losing 3-2.


“We have to manage the game a little bit better, knowing what to do and slow the game down a little bit and go back to our roots, what works for us,” said Seattle forward Yanni Gourde after the Game 2 loss.


When we do that, we’re a pretty successful group. We don’t have to chase the game. We don’t have to change the way we play. We just go back to what we do, and we should be okay.”


The Kraken’s missed opportunity in Game 2 may serve as a valuable lesson as they look to bounce back in the series against the reigning champions, the Avalanche.


With their potential for success when playing to their strengths, the Kraken will aim to regroup and regain their form in the upcoming games.


  • The Seattle Kraken is 6-3 SU in their last 9 games.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 6 of Seattle’s last 6 meetings with Colorado. 
  • The total remained UNDER in 4 of Seattle’s last 6 games at home.
