Avalanche at Kraken game 4
In the final game of the night, we have the Colorado Avalanche taking on the Seattle Kraken in game 4 of the series. The Kraken are at home tonight but are currently down 2-1 in the series and are hoping to even things up before they go back to Colorado. The Kraken started off hot winning 3-1 in the first game in Colorado but have cooled off and lost the last two games against the Avs. The games in this series have been relatively close, and I really don’t know if that is going to change too much tonight.
The two sides have been neck and neck in every game that they have played in so far this series with the largest loss by either team coming by the slim margin of two goals. In all of the games so far, the Avs have been absolutely firing shots off shooting more than 32 in every game so far. The Kraken have been holding their own though and averaging close to 28 shots per game. What I think is going to make the difference in this game is that the Avs goalie, Georgiev, is a better goalie than the Krakens, Grubauer. Although each of these goalies have had their times to shine in these playoffs, with the sheer volume of shots that the Avs fire off every game I don’t see how the Kraken are going to be able to win tonight even though they are at home.
The Kraken are a great team and they have overachieved this season just by making it to the post season, but I don’t think they are getting out of the first round of the playoffs and I don’t think that they are going to get the win tonight. The Avs are going to come out firing again and take game 4:
