Los Angeles Kings came out on top in the last clash against Seattle Kraken, winning with the score of 3-5 on 04/27/2022. One of the reasons behind the Kings’ victory was the performance of Gabriel Vilardi. He was on the ice for 14:58 and ended the game with 1 goal and 2 assists to his account. Jordan Eberle tried his best for the Seattle Kraken. He scored 1 out of 2 attempts on goal for a 18:37 of playing time. Eberle also had a hand in one of the Seattle Kraken goals by laying an assist to his teammates. The Kings’ goalie Jonathan Quick played on a very high level and ended the game with a 0.925 save percentage. Philipp Grubauer was between the sticks for the Kraken and parried 23 of all the 27 shots he faced, but that proved insufficient for the win. In the most recent four games Los Angeles Kings are dominating as far as head-to-head balance is concerned, triumphing in 3 meetings, while losing the other 1.
