The Seattle Kraken is already the victim of a great injustice

Tuesday night, the Seattle Kraken played the first game of their history against the Golden Knights in Vegas. Obviously, the opening show was great, just like the organization has done since its entry into the league in 2017.

If you peel back the entirety of this duel, which was the 2nd of the 2021-22 schedule, you have to give a lot of credit to the Kraken, who worked very hard, showing that the group of players wants to silence all the criticism raining down on them since the expansion draft.

Imagine the context. The Kraken would lose 3-0 to overcome that deficit and bring the game to 3-3, thanks to the fighting spirit of Dave Hakstol's squad and the first goal in the history of this franchise, scored by Ryan Donato, the team's "future William Karlsson".

Yes, it was all heading towards a Cinderella story, until Chandler Stephenson's controversial goal, clearly kicking the puck with his skate towards the net, was awarded. REALLY?! A very bad call by the NHL authorities...

Thank you for this ILLOGICAL and ATROCIOUS decision, people of Toronto... Welcome to the National Hockey League, dear Kraken!
