The Canadian ends his losing streak

Seattle | When a team that has lost five straight plays against a team on seven straight, you shouldn't expect a great classic.

Ultimately, the Canadian's 5-1 win over the Kraken on Sunday night featured several great moments, many of which came from Kayden Primeau's pads.

The Habs, more opportunistic than great, ended their five-game losing streak while the Kraken were again unable to score a goal.

The locals, who suffered their eighth straight loss, have not scored a goal since the start of this ugly series.

We're not taking anything away from the Kraken, but on a trip that included stops in Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and Denver, this was the game the Canadian had the best chance of winning.

Hard Time

To understand why the Octopus sank, we have to go back to the first period where everything went in the Canadian's favor despite often chaotic play. Each take was like a Celine Dion song in her prime, an instant hit.

The first two snaps of the game were taken by the men in blue, white and red. The first, a not particularly powerful shot from Kayden Guhle, deflected off a Kraken player to fool Philipp Grubauer. Then the second, again from Gohle, was well saved by Alex Newhook.

However, the first half of the first half was not in the favor of the visitors, who struggled in the neutral zone while Kayden Primo acted like an octopus to frustrate the Kraken.

Nick Suzuki then fired off a long pass from Jordan Harris, and beat Grubor with a good glove-side shot. The house announcer was telling us that Suzuki had scored when Newhook scored his second goal of the game on a play that Gohle again started. Four goals from six shots and Grubauer's night of work was over.

It's back to what Yanni Jordi told us after the Kraken's morning training, a few hours ago. He and his teammates were unable to score the big goal that might hurt the opponent because the Kraken had good scoring chances within the first twenty minutes.

Even on the power play, the Kraken had a tough time. Example? This disastrous cross from Jared McCann was intercepted by Mike Matheson who crossed the ice end to end to score his team's fifth goal midway through the period.

Great trip for a tour

In this victory, Kayden Guehle played particularly inspired hockey with a goal and two assists. This is his first three-point game in the NHL. He also had a +4 differential, which isn't bad at all.

The western air suits the 22-year-old defender who has been playing well since the start of this long journey to the other end of the continent.

Things started out a little rough in Calgary, but it was a tough night for everyone. In Edmonton, he was the opposite of Connor McDavid and was excellent according to Litowski. He even scored the goal that led to extra time.

In Vancouver, we decided to split him from Mike Matheson in order to pit the two men against the Canucks' top two lines. The bout was intense, with Gohle's nose rubbed on more than one occasion, but he never let up.

Primo lights up

To get out of a bad situation, sometimes you need a great performance from one or two players. There was Gohle, but above all there was Kayden Primeau who played an excellent match.

After a rough outing in Calgary where he allowed 5 goals on 28 shots, Primo bounced back noticeably against the Kraken, who spent the evening frustrated.

The 24-year-old goalkeeper made 36 saves, including several very important ones. He was especially strong with his leggings, with the Kraken continuing to fire at a low level. However, when Jordan Eberle decided to challenge him with a league-high shot, he beat him.

However, it was Andre Burakovsky who was the victim of Primo's biggest theft, an unexpected left-footed save in the third period. The Austrian must have woken up sweating several times during the night while dreaming of this station.
