SAN JOSE (AP) — Scott Reedy and Jonah Gadjovich each scored their first NHL goals, Ryan Dzingel scored his first with San Jose and the Sharks beat the Seattle Kraken 3-1 on Sunday night.
San Jose goaltender James Reimer made 39 saves, including 17 in the first period, when the Kraken outshot the Sharks 18-4.
San Jose beat Seattle for the first time in three tries.
Morgan Geekie scored for the Kraken, who lost their seventh straight. Philipp Grubauer made 21 saves.
Reedy’s first NHL goal at 7:15 of the second period broke the tie 1-1. He started the day with San Jose‘s AHL affiliate, the Barracuda, and was playing his sixth career NHL game. Reedy collected the puck at the top of the circle on a face-off and fired a shot past Grubauer.
Gadjovich got his first, on the power play, with 5:23 left in the third to extend the Sharks’ lead to 3-1.
Dzingel’s goal with 2:41 left in the first was his first since being claimed off waivers last week by Toronto. He scored four goals in 29 games with Arizona before being traded to the Maple Leafs.
Geekie equalized 9 seconds later on a backhand for his fourth goal.
FERRARO UNDERGOES SURGERY
Sharks defenseman Mario Ferrero underwent surgery on Sunday to repair a fractured left lower fibula at Kaiser Permanente in San Jose, the team said. The typical recovery time for this injury is six to eight weeks.
Seattle’s Calle Jarnkrok scored at 4:04 of the second period, but was overturned after officials called out Marcus Johansson for interfering with Reimer.
