NHL News: Mitchell Marner nets hat trick as Leafs top Kraken in SO


Mitchell Marner scored three goals in regulation and added the decisive goal in a shootout and the Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the visiting Seattle Kraken 4-3 Thursday night.

It was the second career hat trick for Marner. Auston Matthews added two assists and also scored in the shootout for the Maple Leafs, who have won two in a row and are 6-1-1 in their past eight games.

Joseph Woll made 37 saves for the Maple Leafs in the second game of a three-game homestand. He also stopped both of Seattle’s shootout attempts.

Jared McCann scored two goals and Eeli Tolvanen scored once for the Kraken, who have lost three in a row (0-2-1).

Philipp Grubauer stopped 25 shots for the Kraken in the second game of their four-game road trip.

Marner scored with an 11-foot wrist shot during a power play at 6:34 of the first period. Tye Kartye was serving a hooking penalty. William Nylander and Matthews earned assists on Marner’s first goal in nine games.

Marner was playing with a facemask after being hit by a puck in the jaw during the Maple Leafs’ 2-1 shootout win over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday.

Toronto’s Morgan Rielly hit the crossbar with a shot as time expired in the first period.

Marner scored 21 seconds into the second period with a slapshot from the left circle on a pass from Matthews. Conor Timmins picked up his first assist of the season on the play.

McCann connected on a 34-foot shot during a power play at 3:37 of the second to halve the Maple Leafs’ lead. William Lagesson was off for tripping. Oliver Bjorkstrand and Jordan Eberle earned assists.

Marner scored his second of the night and eighth of the season at 16:01 of the second after Jake McCabe’s pass put him in the clear.

Tolvanen notched his sixth goal of the season on a shot from the right circle at 6:15 of the third period to pull Seattle within 3-2.

McCann tied the game with his 11th goal of the season on a shot from the left circle at 13:24 of the third. Alex Wennberg made the pass.

Toronto defenseman Mark Giordano (finger fracture) did not play.
