The Kraken had struggled to find consistency on offense in their first six games of the season, with many of their top players unable to find the back of the net.

Tuesday's tilt against Detroit gave Seattle the chance to take advantage of Detroit's goalie, Ville Husso, who had been posting below average numbers for a starting goalie.

Going into the game, Seattle had been generating the sixth most chances in the NHL, despite being near the bottom of the league in goals per game.

With 38 shots on goal, Seattle's offense was bound to start heating up.


Jaden Schwartz led the charge on offense for the Kraken with a standout game.

After tying the game at one goal a piece, Schwartz ripped a slap-shot off the rush for his second of the night later on in the period.

Fast forward to the dying minutes of the third period, Jared McCann fired home a shot on the power play to tie the game at four, with Schwartz screening Husso in front.


Seattle would control play for most of the overtime though did not take many shots.

After Detroit's Lucas Raymond rang a shot off the post, McCann sent the puck to Eberle who scored his 20th point in his last 18 games against Detroit, and his fifth career overtime goal.
