Toronto Maple Leafs @ Seattle Kraken: Game #46
9:00 p.m. ET at Climate Pledge Arena
TV/Streaming: SN Ontario, East, Pacific
Opponent’s SB Nation Site: Davy Jones Locker Room
The Leafs are coming to Seattle for the first time (unless I’m wrong about hockey history, please let me know!) and they’re bringing their big tower with them.
The Leafs are coming off a 3-2 loss to the Vancouver Canucks despite throwing 91 shots (53 on target) at Thatcher Demko. They’ve lost two games in a row since December 4th and 5th in Minnesota and Winnipeg.
Seattle, who are last in the Pacific, have gone 5-5-0 in their last 10, a positive result relatively speaking. They’ve had terrible goaltending all season, but Philipp Grubauer is coming off two very good starts in February.
Don’t expect any lineup changes tonight for the Leafs, with Jack Campbell getting the start in net. Grubauer will be the goalie for Seattle.
