Game notes: Those of you looking for some cephalopod-on-cephalopod violence, rejoice! It’s Al the Octopus vs. the Kraken’s nameless, faceless (as of yet) mascot as the NHL’s 32nd franchise makes its first visit to Detroit. The Wings’ contribution to the Kraken’s original roster, Dennis Cholowski (who was, yes, selected in the expansion draft by an octopus), has already been, well, released; he was picked up by the Washington Capitals before the season started. But Seattle has plenty of other familiar faces, including Calle Jarnkrok, a second-round pick by the Wings in 2010. He has a goal and an assist in 14 games with the Kraken after being selected from the Nashville Predators in the expansion draft.

The Kraken haven’t fared as well as their expansion brethren in Las Vegas, who made the Stanley Cup playoffs in Year 1; Seattle is next to last in the Pacific Divsion — in the depths, as it were — thanks to a six-game skid earlier this month. But they’ve won four of their past five, including two straight, at Florida and Buffalo on Saturday and Monday, respectively.
