We have the two best words in sports happening Monday night when the Seattle Kraken visit the Dallas Stars for game seven of their Western Conference Second Round series. This has been a series where neither team has played well at the same time, but game sevens tend to bring the best out of people. Below is my NHL pick for the Seattle Kraken vs Dallas Stars.

Seattle Kraken Continue to Show Great Resilience
Seattle’s magical second season continues for at least one more game as the Kraken once again played well in the face of elimination. The Kraken took seven games to knock off the defending champion Colorado Avalanche in the first round, and they will need seven games against to knock off the Stars.
Seattle was ready for game six as their fans were wild and the players were buzzing around the ice. The Kraken got on the board first, but the Stars answered the goal with one of their own just 31 seconds later. Leading 2-1 after the first period, it was all Kraken after that as Seattle grabbed a 4-1 lead and led 4-2 after two. It was much of the same in the third period as the Kraken scored two goals, to Dallas one, and won 6-3. The Kraken won each period 2-1 in a do-or-die game.
Jordan Eberle, two goals, was joined on the scoresheet by Yanni Gourde, Eeli Tolvanen, Tye Kartye, and Matty Beniers. Ten different Kraken players recorded an assist in the victory.
The Dallas Stars Are a Confusing Team
Dallas appears to be the better team in this series, but they have produced some truly confusing performances throughout this series. The Stars have been alternating good and bad performances and they will hope game seven is one of the good ones.
Mason Marchment, Joe Pavelski, and Joel Kiviranta all scored in the defeat. Six different Stars players recorded an assist on the night.
