This is only the Seattle Kraken’s second NHL season. Moreover, this is their first time ever featuring in the playoffs of the Stanley Cup. However, the new team might have reached the point where they can no longer be called “inexperienced”. They and their fans may just start believing that the team is ready to challenge for the biggest trophies,
Seattle Kraken’s Fortitude In The Jaws Of Defeat
The Seattle Kraken was almost eliminated but saved themselves after securing a victory over the Stars with a score line of 6 to 3. The result came in the Second Round’s Game 6 of the Western Conference. The venue was the Climate Pledge Arena. The May 13th result forced the Game 7 that will take place in Dallas’ American Airlines Center on May 15th.
During the course of the past month, this was the Seattle Kraken’s 13th game in the playoffs. They have repeatedly faced elimination only to come out on top in the end. This is the mindset they will have as they get ready for the team’s 14th game in the playoffs.
In the previous Game 7 in Round 1, the Seattle Krakens knew what they had to do, and did it. In fact, they did it against one of the favorites – the Colorado Avalanche, the Stanley Cup’s defending champions. So there is every possibility that they will rise up to the challenge once more as they face the chance to appear in their first-ever conference final.
Dave Hakstol, the coach of the Seattle Krakens, was asked about the team’s progress. He answered by giving his praise for the team’s handling of Game 6, and that even without any exaggerated or special instructions, his men were relaxed and focused enough on the target to certify an intense start.
