Dallas Stars vs. Seattle Kraken Prediction, Tips & Odds – Apr. 24, 2022
After failing to pick up a single point during their 3-game away tour, the Dallas Stars will be hoping for a reversal of their fortunes at home as they welcome the Seattle Kraken. A win today would not only boost their low morale but also strengthen their current playoff position against the newcomers in the league.
After an unfruitful road trip, the Stars couldn’t have wished for a better opponent at home to heal their wounds. Their recent form has really hurt their playoff ambitions. A win today against one of the worst teams in the league is an absolute must if they want to hold off the Las Vegas Knights who are only two points behind them.
Dallas’s talented attacking trio of Pavelski–Hintz–Robertson has been the main driving force of their team recently. In today’s critical game they should make the difference against a Kraken team that is struggling defensively. Seattle already had a taste of their deadly trio in their sole visit to the American Airlines Center in January when they were outscored 5:2, with those three players scoring or assisting on all five goals.
“Dallas has seemingly been battling for a playoff spot for the past decade and had put itself in a great spot thanks to a solid spring run.”
The Stars still determine their own fate going into the final homestand.

As a new franchise in the league, it should come as no surprise that Seattle Kraken find themselves at the bottom of the Western Conference. A lack of scoring talent and stable goaltenders has really cost them over a long and grueling season but recently they have been achieving some good results.
Their recent unexpected rise in form has been fueled by their second overall draft pick Matthew Beniers. After arriving to Kraken’s team, he has produced an impressive 3 goals and 2 assists in just five games.

Dallas Stars vs Seattle Kraken Prediction
It should be a tough one for the Kraken who arrive to Dallas after a very demanding and fast-paced game against Minnesota the other night. Dallas don’t look like an elite playoff team but they have more than enough quality to take care of business at home against a lowly opponent like Seattle.
They should be able to get a comfortable win on their home ice so we will back them to cover the -1.0 point spread.
Pick: Dallas Stars (-1)
