Kraken coach Dave Hakstol was delighted with his team, which achieved another victory with a score of 3:2. The Seattle Kraken have won their seventh in a row and are looking fantastic. Matty Beniers was a key man and his goal brought victory to the team.
But none of this would have been possible without Andre Burakovsky. "That's two guys making a play," Kraken coach Dave Hakstol said, as quoted by nhl.com "That's having a plan on the face-off again. I don't care what zone it's in, what time of the game, obviously, they had something in mind, and they went out and they executed.
They went to battle and then finished it off." Hakstol praised the opponent as well as his team. It was a lion's fight by both teams. "That was a hard-fought game, it's two good teams, right down to the wire," Hakstol said.
"We did a lot of little things that guys in this room did during that hockey game in order to stay with it and not just find one point but get the extra point."
Peter Laviolette is disappointed
Washington coach Peter Laviolette was totally disappointed with his team's approach.
"Not enough of the good stuff tonight, not enough of the right things,"-Peter Laviolette said. "Everywhere, everywhere, the whole night, all three periods. There's nothing I'm happy about tonight." Kraken forward Jaden Schwartz believes that the unity is the result of such good play.
"We've been doing a good job of finding ways to win and staying with it and a lot of momentum swings and games and we're doing a pretty good job of managing that," Kraken forward Jaden Schwartz said. "Whether it's special teams power play getting a big goal, or the penalty kill stepping up and it's a big save by [Grubauer]. Everyone's chipping in and playing together and we're getting results."
