However, it is not the first time the Canadiens will meet an Emerald City team: the PCHA Metropolitans beat Montreal in the 1917 Stanley Cup Finals in four games. It took more than a century, but revenge is finally at hand. They met again in the 1919 final, but the series was canceled after five games due to an outbreak of Spanish flu.

Dominique Ducharme confirmed that Jake Evans will not play tonight. Cedric Paquette is inside. The Seattle Kraken will be without the player they claimed from Montreal in the expansion draft, defender Cale Fleury, who currently plays for their minor league affiliate.
