ESPN will host Thursday’s matchup between the Seattle Kraken and Colorado Avalanche in the first round of the 2023 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The puck is set to drop at 9:30 p.m. ET at Ball Arena in Denver, Colorado.

The Kraken came out and shocked the Avalanche with a 3-1 win in Game 1 on the road on Tuesday night. It was very much a matter of weathering the storm. The Avalanche outshot the Kraken 35-30 in the contest and Colorado only had two power plays. Philipp Grubauer was solid in net for Seattle, making 34 saves. The Avalanche were outhit 40-29 by the Kraken, which could play a factor later in the series on the road.
