Game Open Thread: Colorado Avalanche vs. Seattle Kraken (8:00 p.m.)

The Colorado Avalanche, a team not often associated with struggle in recent years, face a tough test as they journey to the Pacific Northwest to take on the Seattle Kraken for the final time this season.

Following Seattle’s 4-3 victory over Colorado, both teams suffered significant losses in their next games. The Kraken fell 4-1 to Edmonton, while the Avs endured an embarrassing 8-2 defeat at home, with coach Jared Bednar deeming it as the worst period of hockey he had ever seen from his team.

Both teams are eager to bounce back with a win tonight as they aim to reverse their recent struggles.
