The Kraken have lost six of their last eight games and their last six games on the road. They have struggled defensively, giving up 24 goals in their last five road games, and will have a hard time slowing down the Lightning, who have one of the best offenses in the league and scored at least four goals in four of their last five games. Even though the Kraken have picked up the pace offensively in recent games, expect them to struggle against the Lightning, who are playing well defensively, giving up 10 goals in their last four home games, so go with the Lightning to win big here.
