Their last meeting took place on December 6, 2022, and resulted in a 4-2 win for the Montreal Canadiens. One of the reasons behind the Canadiens’ triumph was the performance of Jonathan Kovacevic. He played 18:51 of the game and scored one goal. Shane Wright tried his best for the Seattle Kraken. He scored 1 out of 3 attempts on goal for a total of 11:12 of playing time. Jake Allen, the Canadiens’ goalie, faced 33 shots and saved 31 of them. Martin Jones was between the sticks for the Kraken and parried 12 of all the 16 shots he faced, but that proved insufficient for the win. When it comes to the latest three encounters, the Montreal Canadiens won once and the Seattle Kraken triumphed twice.
