The astonishing goal brought Seattle’s landmark victory. Opponent scored himself from a throw-in

The Seattle Kraken, the new NHL team, entered the fray, with a win, and how exciting it was! First, we played against Vancouver, with which you want it or not, but there will be a fundamental rivalry, after all, it is the closest neighbor.

Secondly, the scenario of the match turned out to be just right! In the first period, the Canucks seized the advantage, scoring two goals in a minute and a half, and put the hosts in a difficult position. However, in the second period, the team completely turned the game around. First, Riley Sheehan rolled out at the right time on a patch and, having received a transmission from behind the gate from Bastian, shot Artur Shilov.

Swinging, “Kraken” was better on all fronts, just look at the difference in shots – 38-14! For the sake of fairness, it should be noted that the line-ups of the teams were not comparable. Vancouver put a lot of young people on the ice, including 18-year-old Belarusian Danil Klimovich and 20-year-old Latvian goalkeeper Artur Shilov, while Kraken chose a more experienced squad – Eberle, Schwartz, Giordano, Donskoy, Grubauer.

Thirdly, the winning goal came out in such a way that you can’t imagine it on purpose. With the score 3: 3 at the very beginning of the third period, Morgan Geeky and Jason Dickinson faced a throw-in in the Vancouver zone . The killer whale striker won the back throw and the puck slid straight into the net, hitting the defender’s stick along the way. An amazing goal, goalkeeper Spencer Martin did not expect this, and because of his back, Juolevi could not even see.

The goal was scored on Geeky, who did not expect such a gift and did not even celebrate at first, and remained at the throw-in point. In the end, he also scored with his own throw, making a double in the majority.

“Kraken” achieved a landmark victory in the first match in its history. This should instill confidence in a team that will inevitably be compared to Vegas and their phenomenal debut season.
