ESPN will host Tuesday’s matchup between the Dallas Stars and Seattle Kraken in the second round of the 2023 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The puck is set to drop at 9:30 p.m. ET at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
The Kraken pulled off a big upset, knocking off the defending champion Colorado Avalanche in the first round of the playoffs. Seattle has gotten great goaltending from Philipp Grubauer and is showing off that depth with 15 different goal scorers in the first round, no player with more than two goals.
The Stars were able to outlast the Minnesota Wild after dropping two of the first three games of the series. Dallas has arguably the best goaltender remaining with Jake Oettinger. He’s allowed just three goals over the past three games, including one shutout. Stars C Roope Hintz leads the NHL playoffs in points with 12 through six games.
