This Kraken team has really come along nicely. After making the biggest turnaround in league history, Seattle was able to eliminate the defending champs.
Clearly, this franchise is all about making history, as the Kraken aims to take over the NHL, especially after defeating the Avalanche.
As you can imagine, hockey fans everywhere couldn’t believe what Seattle accomplished on Sunday night. Some are happy, some are upset. It seems the Kraken put everyone through a roller coaster of emotions.
Massive win for the Kraken. Let's go!

The first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs was insane!
Madness in these playoffs. Don’t know which was more of an upset between this or The Bruins…
