J.T. Miller, Quinn Hughes and Nils Hoglander scored for Vancouver (12-5-1), which has lost two in a row.
Thatcher Demko stopped 22 shots.
Miller and Hughes are now tied with teammate Elias Pettersson for the NHL lead in points with 28 apiece.

Hoglander scored with just 11 seconds left in the game, tipping in an airborne puck in front.
Gourde restored the Kraken’s lead at 4:19 of the third. Eeli Tolvanen sent a cross-ice pass to Will Borgen, who popped it in front of the net for Gourde to convert on a tap-in.
