The previous meeting of the teams was on 10/27/2022 and ended in a 5-4 win for the Vancouver Canucks. One of the reasons behind the Canucks’ triumph was the performance of Ilya Mikheyev. He was on the ice for 16:23 and ended the game with two goals. On the other half of the court, it was Jaden Schwartz who contributed the most, scoring one goal and assisting on another for a total of 16:15 of game time. The Canucks’ goalie, Thatcher Demko, faced 36 shots and managed to save 32 of them. Martin Jones was between the sticks for the Kraken and parried 14 of the 18 shots he faced, but that proved insufficient for the win. There is no clear favorite when it comes to the latest five encounters, as the Vancouver Canucks won three and the Seattle Kraken triumphed twice in the process.
