The Kraken concludes a seven-game journey tonight in which they were undefeated. Seattle is 15-4-2 overall on opposing rinks this season. the attacker Matty Beniersthe NHL rookie leader with 34 points, has scored four goals in his last five games, while the defenseman Vince Dunn registered nine points (three goals, six assists) during a five-game point streak.

The Blackhawks (11-25-4) have won their last three games and will be looking to match their longest winning streak of the season (October 15-25). They will be able to salute the striker’s return to play Patrick Kane, who missed the last three games with a lower-body injury. Kane has 27 points, including seven goals, in 37 games.

The Kraken Attacker Jordan Eberle will play his 900th career game in the NHL.

Big duel in the Metropolitan between the Penguins and the Hurricanes

The Carolina Hurricanes snapped a four-game losing streak by beating the Columbus Blue Jackets 6-2 on Thursday, and they meet another Metropolitan Division rival, the Pittsburgh Penguins, at PNC Arena ( 7 p.m. ET; BSSO, ATTSN-PT, ESPN+, SN NOW).

Carolina (26-9-7) welcomed No. 1 goaltender Frederick Andersen back to the game in the final game, but lost the services of Max Pacioretty. The forward injured his lower body in the first period, having scored three goals in four outings since returning to play. The Hurricanes are still first in their section, but the gap is closing. The New Jersey Devils are only two points behind Carolina.

The Penguins (21-13-6) will be playing their second game in as many nights. They lost 4-1 at home to the Winnipeg Jets on Friday. Sidney Crosby was cleared of the scoresheet in this duel, he who registered 59 points (18 goals, 41 assists) in 41 career games against the Jets/Atlanta Thrashers franchise.

Pittsburgh will look to avoid the sweep against the Hurricanes, who have won the first three meetings between the two teams this season, by a single-goal margin each time.
