We’re a close-knit group, we have fun together, we win together, and I don’t think there’s really anyone in the dressing room who really cares about acknowledging. It’s just the mentality of the team.”

“I was hoping for the best,” said Tanev. “I know [Sprong is] The shooter is great, so you can stop yourself in front of the net and hope to deflect someone in, and I was lucky enough to have that happen.”

“I don “t think so [Seattle] It surprised us, said Allmark. “They’re a good team, we know their record on the road too, and their play speaks for itself. I thought it was a good hockey game. It’s the game of inches. Sometimes you have it, sometimes you don’t.”

Schwartz scored an empty goal at 18:10 of the third period to make the final 3-0.

“It’s a tough place to win, of course,” said Kraken coach Dave Huxtol. “You haven’t always been able to do it here this year, so for our people, we should be proud of that. We did all the little things you have to do to win: score two goals at the right time, we had some good goals.”
