SEATTLE, WASHINGTON - MAY 09: Joe Pavelski #16 of the Dallas Stars and Matty Beniers #10 of the Seattle Kraken face off during the second period in Game Four of the Second Round of the 2023 Stanley Cup Playoffs at Climate Pledge Arena on May 09, 2023
The team will need every advantage it can get in Game 7.

"A tough time of year to beat any team three games in a row. We won [Game 4]. We won [Game 5]. So, it’s a big ask. It’s the reason you play it all season is to have home ice and a Game 7. And we’ve earned that and hopefully, we use that to our benefit," he said.
