Game Notes:

So! The Kraken are riding high on a seven game win streak and having just beat the Boston Bruins in the most convincing game they’ve played all year.

You’d figure that they’d be rolling into this one expecting an easy win from a decrepit Blackhawks squad, right? Don’t be fooled…mostly.

While they are exceptionally (but some might say justifiably) quite bad, they are pulling off some gutsy wins lately: not against especially great teams, but a win streak is a win streak is a win streak. With the potential return of Patrick Kane, there’s a good chance that Chicago will be trying to try and cause a little stumble. But not too hard! Connor Bedard is really good.

Will the Hawks get a shock win? Or will the Kraken complete the road trip perfectly?

We’ll find out at 5!
