Dunn scores in overtime, Kraken beats Sharks 2-1

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Vince Dunn scored 1:58 into overtime and the Seattle Kraken beat the San Jose Sharks 2-1 Thursday night.

Oliver Bjorkstrand had a goal and an assist for the Kraken, tying the score for his 15th of the season on a breakaway at 7:03 of the third period.

Philipp Grubauer stopped 31 shots and Dunn extended his point streak to 11 games.

Sharks forward William Eklund scored on a penalty shot for his second career goal, both in the last two games. James Reimer was terrific in net, finishing with 30 saves.

Dunn beat Reimer between the legs to win it.

Eklund’s goal early in the third was the first penalty shot converted by a Sharks player since Logan Couture scored against the Minnesota Wild on March 11, 2019.

Less than six minutes later, Yanni Gourde found Bjorkstrand crossing the middle of the ice and he beat Reimer on his catch glove.


Kraken: Host the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday.

Sharks: Host the New York Islanders on Saturday.
