Kraken will face the NHL's best offense in Frozen Frenzy action

Published October 24, 2023 at 2:59 PM

Tuesday night's matchup for the Seattle Kraken will be a tough test against a Detroit Red Wings team who is red hot out of the gate.

Seattle comes into Tuesday's contest with a record of 1-4-1 and sitting 6th in the Pacific Division.

Despite an offensive outburst of seven goals against the Carolina Hurricanes, the Kraken have scored only four goals in their other five games.

Going into Detroit, the Red Wings are 5-1 to start the year and have the highest number of goals for in the NHL with 30.

This largely in part to a couple of Michigan natives leading the charge on offense.

Red Wings General Manager Steve Yzerman went out and acquired scoring winger Alex Debrincat from the Ottawa Senators in the offseason and has been reaping the rewards ever since. The winger has 8 goals and 12 points which leads the NHL.

Detroit's captain Dylan Larkin, fresh off a large eight-year extension, is second in the NHL with 11 points in 6 games.

Debrincat is fresh off a hat-trick which he scored against his former club in Ottawa on Sunday.

Seattle will look to their top offensive weapons Jared McCann and Matty Beniers to ignite their fire from last season to extinguish the Red Wings on their home rink.
