Edmonton Oilers enveloped by Kraken – Edmonton

The Edmonton Oilers couldn’t score a goal Monday night, losing 3-0 in a preseason road game against the Seattle Kraken.

Matty Beniers opened the scoring for Seattle early in the second period, beating Olivier Rodrigue with a shot from the left wing. Tyler Benson had a breakaway to tie the Oilers but was blocked by Martin Jones. Later in the second, Kraken keeper Joey Daccord fired a long pass past Ryan Donato. Donato was forced behind the net but held the puck and his balance long enough to slam a loop past Ryan Fanti.
