The Kraken, on the other hand, aims to build on a solid road victory and dominate Game One on both ends of the rink.


With Yanni Gourde, Jaden Schwartz, and the rest of the forward group moving the puck into the offensive zone and producing open shots with rapid passes, the Kraken should consistently hit the back of the net.


With Vince Dunn, Adam Larsson, and the rest of the defensive unit forcing turnovers in the defensive zone and restricting shots on goal, The Kraken, who permitted just 19 goals in the First Round, should limit the Stars’ offense, permitting goaltender Philipp Grubauer to make many significant saves in the net.
