Goaltending Matchup Between Seattle and Carolina

Published October 26, 2023 at 5:27 PM

Thursday's matchup between Seattle and Carolina could prove to be high scoring based on each time having a respectably high power play percentage and being near the bottom of the league in goals against.

Both these teams have a similar structure with coaches Dave Hakstol and Rod Brind'Amour preferring to spread out the offense and roll four lines, creating forward groups that attack in waves.

Seattle will be riding the hot hand as Joey Daccord makes his second consecutive start for the Kraken.

Daccord stopped 23 of 27 shots against Detroit on Tuesday en route to an overtime win for Seattle, improving his record to 2-0-1 with a .898 save percentage.

Carolina will be turning to veteran goaltender Frederik Andersen as they look to get their record back to 500.

Andersen missed a few games due to injury, but is back for the Canes tonight on home-ice.

The 34 year old is 2-0 on the season with a .855 save percentage, much below what himself and the Hurricanes are used to.

With both goalters being below .900, there could be plenty of space for the offense to take control of the game.
