Seattle Kraken ML against the Buffalo Sabres
Reasoning: The Seattle Kraken may just be an expansion team, however, they have had two impressive wins in the past week against the two hottest teams in hockey. First, they beat the Hurricanes who have the best record in the NHL. A few days later, they beat the Panthers who had the hottest start to this season. I believe the Kraken continue their good form against a Sabres team who is starting a Tobarski at goal for the first time this season.
Montreal Canadiens ML against the Vancouver Canucks
Reasoning: The Canadiens have finally started to look like themselves after beating the Penguins 5-2 in their previous outing. They will have a favorable home matchup against their divisional rival in the Canucks. They are very familiar with this Vancouver team and they will have a fairly easy time shutting them down with their elite defense. Expect a low scoring game with Canadiens on top.
Winnipeg Jets ML against the Arizona Coyotes
Reasoning: The Jets started the season well, only to lose 5 in a row after. However, they won their last game against a strong Flames team. I believe they will build off this momentum against a very weak Coyotes team. Expect a blow out by the Jets as they have a favorable matchup at home against Arizona.
