Evan’s Daily: Kovalenko Hype, Kraken Force A Game Seven
The Seattle Kraken are still hanging around in the NHL playoffs after taking down the Dallas Stars on Saturday night. For the second straight series, they will go to a Game Seven.
It’s a quiet weekend around the Colorado Avalanche, so we took a look at the highlight-reel for Nikolai Kovalenko, and a film room may be on the way soon.
All that and more in this Sunday edition of Evan’s Daily.

Nikolai Kovalenko had a tremendous year in the KHL, and although he’s a little older, is one of the top prospects for the Avalanche. Take a look at his highlight-reel, and in the near future, expect a deeper dive into his game with a film room.
Denis Malgin is flashy and disappeared at times, but provided some much needed depth scoring for the Avalanche after being acquired. Is he a flash in the pan or will he be a mainstay on the team?
Both Malgin and Mikko Rantanen played big roles in their respective teams walking away with victories in the World Championships.
The Seattle Kraken obviously gave the Avalanche a lot of trouble, and they’re doing the same to Dallas. They chased Jake Oettinger from the net in Game Six, and forced a Game Seven with a 6-3 win.
Alex Pietrangelo called out the Oilers for their premeditated hits before Game Six.
