The Toronto Maple Leafs, having won their last two in a row, head to Climate Pledge Arena to take on the Seattle Kraken.
The Kraken have slipped in the standings with the rise of the Oilers. Instead of claiming a spot in the Pacific, the Kraken hold the top Wild Card slot. There are two points between each team in the top four in the Pacific, so it would not take much for the Kraken to climb back up. However, they need to return to their winning ways to make that happen.

Maple Leafs vs. Kraken Best Bets
Going out on a limb for this one. Auston Matthews hasn’t recorded a goal in his last four games, and he has failed to put up a point in his last three. Toronto’s offense runs through Matthews and they can’t win if he isn’t at his best. Bettors should look for him to turn it around today.

Maple Leafs vs. Kraken Prediction
Opening up a cross-country road trip is always challenging, and it becomes much tougher when taking on a top team like Seattle. This is the first of five legs, and while Toronto should come out of this trek with a winning record, this stop will be one of, if not the only loss they have on this trip.
