Game four of a Western Conference Second Round series is set for Tuesday night when the Dallas Stars visit the Seattle Kraken. The Kraken have been one of the great stories of the NHL season and they can put on foot in the Western Conference Finals with a win on Wednesday. Below is my NHL pick for the Dallas Stars vs Seattle Kraken.

Why Bet the Seattle Kraken:

Dallas Stars Looking to Even the Series Up
Dallas hoped they turned the series around with a game two victory, but the Kraken had something to say about that. The Stars split the games on their home ice and handed Seattle the home ice advantage. Seattle took advantage of that and rode their great fans to a big game three win to go ahead in this series.
Game three got off to a slow start with no goals in the first period, but Seattle quickly made up for that. The Kraken scored four unanswered goals in the first 8:22 of the second period and never looked back. Each team scored one goal in the final 10 minutes to make it 5-1 Seattle after two. Seattle scored two more goals in the third period and finished off a dominant 7-2 victory.
Mason Marchment and Jani Hakanpaa both scored for Dallas on the night. Jamie Benn and Evgenii Dadonov both got assists in the defeat.
The Seattle Kraken Are Stanley Cup Contenders
What a season these Seattle Kraken are having and it does not appear to be ending anytime soon. The Kraken are just two wins away from making the first Western Conference Finals appearance in their franchises, short, history.
In the game three win, seven different Kraken players grabbed a goal in what was one of the more balanced scoring outputs we have seen. Nine different Seattle players recorded an assist in the victory.
