Dunn scored in overtime as the Kraken beat the Sharks 2-1

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

Former Portland Winterhawk Oliver Bjorkstrand had a goal and an assist for the Kraken, tying the game with 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 kick for his second career goal, both in the last two games. James Reimer was terrific in net, finishing with 30 saves.

Dunn defeated Rymer through the legs to win.

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

Less than six minutes later, Jani Gurd found Bjorkstrand hitting up the middle of the ice and beat Reimer in the catcher’s glove.


The Kraken host the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday.
