VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) – Elias Peterson scored his second goal of the game to tie the game with 1:20 left in regulation and added the penalty shootout winner in the Vancouver Canucks’ 6-5 win over the Seattle Kraken Thursday night.

Peterson, who also had three assists, blasted a powerful shot over the face-off circle to connect with goaltender Spencer Martin for an extra tackle.

The Canucks had a solid game a minute before 3-on-3 overtime after Seattle called Jordan Eberle, but were unable to score.

Andrei Kuzmenko had a goal and two assists for Vancouver, Len Pederson scored his first goal in his third NHL game and added an assist, and Brock Boozer also connected. The Canucks have defeated the Kraken all six times they have met.

Martin stopped 31 shots for Vancouver.

Daniel Sprung scored twice for Seattle, and Jared McCann, Oliver Bjorkstrand and Alex Weinberg also scored. Bjorkstrand and Sprung hit a 10-second lead in the second to give Seattle a 3-1 lead.
