CHICAGO (AP) — Jason Dickinson and Tyler Johnson scored 13 seconds apart late in the third period, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Seattle Kraken 5-4 on Sunday for their third straight win.

Max Domi and Jujhar Khaira also scored for Chicago (3-2-0), which trailed 2-0 midway through the first period and 4-3 going into the third. The Blackhawks also erased a two-goal deficit in their previous two wins.

Johnson tied it at 4 with his second goal of the game with 7:03 left. He beat Martin Jones from the slot after taking a feed from Jonathan Toews behind the net.

Dickinson then scored from the right circle with 6:50 remaining after Seattle defenseman Adam Larsson couldn’t control the puck cleanly.

Jared McCann had a goal and an assist for the Kraken for the second straight game. Vince Dunn, Andre Burakovsky and Matty Beniers also scored.

Khaira’s short-handed goal with 2:56 left in the first sparked Chicago’s comeback. It was the Blackhawks’ fourth short-handed goal already this season.

Johnson then tied it at 2 with his first of the season with 42 seconds to go in the first, firing in a rebound of Seth Jones’ shot from the top of the slot.

Jones and Patrick Kane each had two assists for Chicago.

Both teams were without their No. 1 goalies. Alex Stalock made 30 saves for the Blackhawks, and Jones blocked 22 shots for the Kraken (2-3-2).

The Blackhawks placed goaltender Petr Mrazek on injured reserve with a groin strain after he got hurt during the home opener on Friday. Coach Luke Richardson said Mrazek was scheduled to be re-evaluated later Sunday, and the injury might keep him out “for at least a week.”

Seattle’s Philipp Grubauer is day to day with a lower-body injury. He got hurt during the third period of the Kraken’s 3-2 win at Colorado on Friday.

Seattle pounced on two Chicago mistakes to score 1:45 apart early in the first.

McCann opened the scoring at 5:46, converting Morgan Geekie’s drop pass in the slot after getting open.

Burakovksy connected at 7:31. Jordan Eberle knocked the puck away from Seth Jones on the left boards, then fed Burakovsky in front.

Domi converted a rebound from the doorstep to put Chicago ahead 3-2 just 32 seconds into the second. But Beniers replied 19 seconds later after Stalock got caught out of position.

Dunn put Seattle back in front midway through the second. Trailing on the play, Dunn steamed down the slot alone, took McCann’s feed and ripped a shot past Stalock.
