The struggling Kraken sink the Oilers 5-2 with an offensive blast

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Jaden Schwartz scored a goal and two assists as the Seattle Kraken led four straight second-half goals to a 5-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night.

“It was nice. I thought the way we played was good for the rewards,” said Kraken defender Adam Larsson. “There was a lot of focus on what happened in the last game and that made us hungrier today. From top to bottom, every player played a solid game.”

Matty Benners, Yanni Gord, Jared McCann, and Alex Weinberg also scored for the Kraken (20-12-4) who won two in a row. Martin Jones made 30 saves against Seattle.

“In the second half we scored one goal and it gave us some wingers offensively and we were able to put in more attacking plays and I think we kept our game very simple,” said Gord. “We weren’t trying too much, we weren’t trying to get through the guys, we were just putting it in the net and trying to work our way there and get rewards.”
