Florida Panthers

Scoreless in Seattle: Kraken 4, Florida Panthers 0

The Florida Panthers may have been the better team for two periods on Tuesday in Seattle but that did not mean much to a very desperate Kraken team.

Then came the third.

Seattle scored three in the third to snap an eight-game losing streak by beating the Panthers 4-0.

Florida saw its three-game winning streak end.

Joey Daccord not only got the win for Seattle with 24 saves — but got his first shutout in his 28th NHL start.

The Kraken came into the night 0-6-2 in its previous eight games and had been outscored 27-13.

Florida outshot Seattle 9-3 in the first period but Kailer Yamamoto scored on the Kraken’s fourth shot at 3:06 of the second.

Pierre-Edouard Bellemare gave the Kraken a 2-0 lead with 14:01 remaining with Alex Wennberg getting the back-breaker midway through the third.

Eeli Tolvanen got the empty-net goal with 3:51 left as the Kraken got its first win since Nov. 22 against San Jose.

The Panthers had one chance after another — but went 0-for-3 on the power play as coach Paul Maurice threw his forward lines into a mixer from the midway point of the second and into the third.

It did not make much of a difference.

The Panthers have three games left on this five-game road trip which started with a 5-2 win Sunday in Columbus.
