SEATTLE — Justin Faulk scored his second goal of the game at 2:50 of overtime and the St. Louis Blues beat the Seattle Kraken 4-3 on Wednesday night.

Vladimir Tarasenko took advantage of a defensive miscue behind the net and found Faulk in front of the net for his third assist of the game. Faulk put the shot past Martin Johnson from the crease.

Brayden Schenn had a goal and an assist to help St. Louis improve to 2-0, Jordan Kyrou also scored and Jordan Binnington made 32 saves.

Will Borgen, Ryan Donato and Alex Larsson scored for Seattle in its third straight loss at home to start the season. Seattle wiped away a two-goal deficit in the second and played its best defensive period of the season to send it overtime.

Faulk gave St. Louis a 3-1 lead with 7:48 left in the first period.

Donato stuffed the puck home midway through the second and Larsson buried a slap shot from the blue line to tie it with 1:29 left in the period. Binnington appeared to have the puck lined up on Larsson’s shot, but Torey Krug inadvertently redirected the puck into the net with his stick.

SUE BIRD CELEBRATION

Seattle fans aren’t tired of cheering for Sue Bird. The newly retired Seattle Storm star was in attendance for another official salute at Climate Pledge Arena, the place where she memorably finished her career last month.

NOTES
