Do you see the positive side of things? It’s what the Kraken did after their latest loss — sort of – [Update News]

There is no denying what happened Monday to the Seattle Kraken. They lost another match. More specifically, their 4-3 defeat against the Colorado Avalanche means they have now lost six in a row and nine of their past 10 contests.

Philipp Grubauer and Marcus Johansson, Jared McCann, coach Dave Hakstol, all of this was not lost on them. It could be argued that it all comes down to what each player said, beyond acknowledging defeat. The four players offered examples of sequences where the Kraken could find consistencies against a Stanley Cup frontrunner at a venue that has seen only victories over the years.

“I felt like we controlled most of the game,” McCann said. “We had some good D-zone shifts there. They are obviously a powerful offense. We kept them in check there for the first couple periods.”

But? But?

“But that doesn’t really mean anything unless you get the win,” McCann added.

Nathan MacKinnon had found open ice. Jamie Oleksiak, Mark Giordano, and Jamie Oleksiak formed a wall that moved to take his possession.
