There are no better words in sports. GAME SEVEN. Tonight, the Seattle Kraken and Dallas Stars battle it out for the right to move on and face the Vegas Golden Knights in the Western Conference Finals. Puck-drop is set for 8:00 p.m. EST from American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
At this point, we all need to stop doubting the Kraken. Time and time again, they seem to have an answer for everything thrown their way. They have shown patience and resiliency not normally seen from such a young playoff group. But they are just one win away from heading to the Western Conference Finals. Seattle needs to get out to an early lead and now allow the Dallas crowd to become involved in anyway. If they can put together a strong offensive attack early on, it could be a good sign of things to come. The Kraken have excelled when under pressure and there is no more pressure than a road game seven.
Dallas comes into this game after falling to eliminate Seattle in game six. They saw what happened in the first round against the Colorado Avalanche so they should be well aware of the resiliency of this Seattle group. However, if they can come out early and make a statement, it could be a long game for the Kraken. The Stars have one of the deepest teams in the league and they can be shut down on the defensive end of the ice. Dallas is going to need another massive game from their defense and goalie to win this series.
Game Prediction: Dallas Stars 5, Seattle Kraken 2
I like the Stars to take the series at home behind a strong offensive attack, while giving them the big series win.
