Noah Hanifin helped Flames to a fourth-straight victory to defeat Kraken

Seattle (AP) – Blake Coleman, Trevor Lewis and Michael Stone scored with the help of Noah Hanifin and the Calgary Flame beat the Seattle Kraken 4-1 on Saturday for their fourth straight win.

The teams will end the home-and-home series in Calgary on Tuesday night.

Tyler Tofoli added a short-hand, empty-net goal to cap the scoring, and Jacob Markstrom saved 27. Carson Kohlmann scored for Seattle and Philip Grubauer stopped 25 shots.

Coleman opened the scoring at 3:55 in the first period, deflecting Hanifin’s shot from the blue line of the screened Grubower. Kuhlmann tied it 1:05 later, with a one-time Morgan Geeky pass from behind the net over Markstrom’s stick.

Hanifin made a deep run late in the first half and Trevor Lewis camped out at the crease with a quick pass that left Lewis with 16.5 seconds left in the period for a 2-1 lead.

Stone made it 3-1 with a power-play goal in the second period at 8:39. Hanifin hit Stone with a cross-ice pass which he buried with a one-timer from the left faceoff circle.

Calgary froze the game late in the second with three Seattle power plays with 54 seconds of 5-on-3 advantage.

Seattle has lost four of its last six.


Kuhlmann has scored two goals in his last four matches. ? Calle Jarnkrok (Illness) was a game-time scratch for the Flames, who acquired the forward from Seattle on the trade deadline. He was the first former player to play against an expansion franchise.
