Gameday Morning Brief – 5/1 @ Winnipeg Jets

Friday’s 3-0 win on Fan Appreciation Night felt like the perfect ending to what had been an otherwise disappointing inaugural season for the Kraken.

Due to aContinue reading “Gameday Morning Brief – 5/1 @ Winnipeg Jets”

Gameday Morning Brief – 4/29 vs. San Jose Sharks

It hasn’t been an easy season for Kraken fans. The Kraken failed to live up to expectations on the ice and COVID’s resurgence mid-season meant that the team couldn’t engage in in-person fan outreach as much as they would’ve liked. But even with the difficult season, one thing that never changed is the energy, love,Continue reading “Gameday Morning Brief – 4/29 vs. San Jose Sharks”

Gameday Morning Brief – 4/27 vs. Los Angeles Kings

As Sportsnet’s Jeff Marek says, “If you’re going to stink, stink on the road.” While not their intended plan, the Kraken have stuck to that philosophy over the past two weeks. After last Wednesday’s win against Colorado, Kraken players and coaches talked about the importance of rewarding the fans who have stuck through them throughContinue reading “Gameday Morning Brief – 4/27 vs. Los Angeles Kings”

Gameday Morning Brief – 4/26 @ Vancouver Canucks

From the moment the first puck dropped at Climate Pledge Arena in October, the Kraken and Canucks were supposed to have a heated rivalry. However, things haven’t gone as planned. The rivalry, if you can call it that, has been entirely one-sided with the Canucks winning all three games by a combined score of 14-6.Continue reading “Gameday Morning Brief – 4/26 @ Vancouver Canucks”

Gameday Morning Brief – 4/23 @ Dallas Stars

Did we fly too close to the sun? It’s a question I asked in ECH Postgame Live, albeit mostly in jest, after a peak of optimism surrounding the Kraken came crashing down last night. That epic second period collapse has temporarily reopened the question of whether the Kraken can, in fact, have nice things. ManyContinue reading “Gameday Morning Brief – 4/23 @ Dallas Stars”

Gameday Morning Brief – 4/22 @ Minnesota Wild

How far can this team go? That’s the question on Kraken fans’ minds following Wednesday’s 3-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche. That victory secured the first three game win streak in franchise history and was further evidence that this Kraken team is a different animal than its early season counterpart. Can that success be replicatedContinue reading “Gameday Morning Brief – 4/22 @ Minnesota Wild”

Gameday Morning Brief – 4/20 vs. Colorado Avalanche

It’s a new era in Seattle. After a pair of home wins fueled by rookie sensation Matty Beniers, the Kraken are riding a high unlike any they’ve felt this season. Hope has been renewed in Seattle, but that newfound optimism faces its first real test tonight. The Kraken are looking to accomplish something that’s eludedContinue reading “Gameday Morning Brief – 4/20 vs. Colorado Avalanche”

Gameday Morning Brief – 4/18 vs. Ottawa Senators

While there were certainly areas to improve upon on the ice, the Kraken may be coming off their best game of the season from a fan’s perspective. Saturday’s 4-3 shootout win led by Matty Beniers provided a new high point in hope for the franchise’s future success. There was a level of anticipation and excitementContinue reading “Gameday Morning Brief – 4/18 vs. Ottawa Senators”

Gameday Morning Brief – 4/16 vs. New Jersey Devils

Tuesday’s 5-3 loss in Calgary put the remainder of the Kraken’s season in perspective. In a turn of events we’ve come to expect over the course of the season, the Kraken blew a 3-1 third period lead. It’s far from the first time the Kraken have let attainable points slip away, which is a majorContinue reading “Gameday Morning Brief – 4/16 vs. New Jersey Devils”

Gameday Morning Brief – 4/12 @ Calgary Flames

After a 4-1 loss to the Flames in Seattle, the Kraken travel to Calgary for the second half of the first home and home series in franchise history. While Seattle’s opponent remains the same, it feels like a lot has changed since these two teams met on Saturday. Namely the Kraken’s signing of last year’sContinue reading “Gameday Morning Brief – 4/12 @ Calgary Flames”
