Campbell was pulled for an extra attacker with 3:40 left. Seattle’s Alex Wennberg scored an empty-netter with 2:31 left. “It doesn’t always have to be a smooth sail, as long as you’re learning the lessons presented to you along the way, ” Woodcroft said.

THE CANADIAN PRESS/Jason Franson The Oilers (20-17-2) will host the New York Islanders on Thursday.
Story continues below advertisement Connor McDavid turned on the jets down the right wing and beat Seattle netminder Martin Jones 48 seconds into the second to make it 2-0. “You go up 2-0, the odds you win that game are statistically pretty high, ” Zach Hyman said after the game. “We went 11 minutes where we fell asleep in the second period and all of a sudden we’re playing catch-up. ” Seattle came back with two goals 31 seconds apart. Matty Beniers batted the puck in on a power play.
The goal chased Skinner from the net after allowing four goals on 20 shots, with Jack Campbell coming in to replace him. Edmonton thought it had clawed back to within a goal on an early third period power-play goal by Draisaitl, but it was erased on a coach’s challenge which determined Hyman was offside on the play. NOTESThe teams previously met Friday, with Edmonton rolling to a relatively easy 7-2 victory, highlighted by a five-point performance from McDavid. … With eight of their next nine games on the road, the Kraken actually spend more time in Edmonton than in Seattle during that stretch as they will make a stop at home for one game following their seven-game road swing, only to return right back to Edmonton on Jan.
Martin Jones made 30 saves in the Seattle net. “In the second period, we got that one goal and it gave us some wings offensively and we were able to make more plays offensively, and I think we kept our game pretty simple, ” Gourde said. “We weren’t trying too much, we weren’t trying to pass through guys, we were just putting it at the net and trying to work our way there and we got rewarded. ”Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Connor McDavid responded with goals for the Oilers (20-17-2) who have lost two straight and five consecutive games on home ice.
“You go up 2-0 and the odds that you win that game are statistically pretty high, right? ” said Oilers forward Zach Hyman. “But, unfortunately, we weren’t able to keep the lead and we had 11 minutes where we fell asleep in the second period (and allowed four goals) and suddenly you are playing catch-up.
”Edmonton’s lethal power play connected to start the scoring with 7:13 remaining in the opening period as a Leon Draisaitl shot attempt went through the crease to Nugent-Hopkins, who sniped home his 19th of the season from a tough angle past Jones. Oilers goalie Stuart Skinner kept it a 1-0 game by making a breakaway stop on Daniel Sprong a few minutes later. The Oilers went up by a pair just 48 seconds into the middle frame as McDavid got his league-leading 33rd goal of the season. The Kraken tied the game with a pair of goals just 31 seconds apart, however. Seattle got on the board 4:44 into the second period with a power-play goal as Beniers was able to bat a rebound out of mid-air and it trickled behind Skinner. Then with another Oiler penalty on the way, Beniers made a perfect long pass to Schwartz at the back door, and he directed home his first goal in 12 games.
Skinner was replaced by Jack Campbell after allowing four goals on 20 shots. The Oilers briefly celebrated a power-play goal by Leon Draisaitl early in the third, but the Kraken successfully challenged the play for offside. Edmonton forward Dylan Holloway was slapped with a double-minor for high-sticking, but the Oilers stayed alive by killing it off.
