NHL News: Senators blank Kraken to halt three-game slide


Anton Forsberg made 39 saves for his first shutout of the season as the host Ottawa Senators defeated the Seattle Kraken 2-0 on Saturday night.

Mathieu Joseph and Drake Batherson scored for the Senators, who snapped a three-game losing streak during which they had been outscored 14-5.

Goalie Joey Daccord, a former Senators draft pick playing his first game against his old team, stopped 26 of 28 shots for the Kraken, who suffered their fourth straight loss (0-3-1). Seattle will wrap up its four-game trip Monday in Montreal.

Joseph opened the scoring at 17:21 of the first period. Joseph picked off a pass at center ice and fed Rourke Chartier driving down the left wing. Chartier’s shot was blocked but Seattle’s Matty Beniers tripped as he started to skate the puck back up the ice and it slid to Joseph in the slot and he deked Daccord before lifting a shot inside the left post.

Ottawa’s second goal, at 13:37 of the second, also came off a Kraken turnover deep in their own end. The Senators dumped the puck into the offensive zone, with Daccord stopping it behind the net. But Daccord fanned on a clearing pass and the Senators’ Vladimir Tarasenko was able to get the puck, spin and send it to Tim Stutzle near the bottom of the right faceoff circle.

Stutzle eschewed a shot and fired a pass across the slot to a wide-open Batherson, who put a one-timer into the open side of the net as Daccord struggled to get back into position. The assist gave Stutzle his 200th career point.

Daccord made a highlight-reel stop on a two-on-one Ottawa rush midway through the third. Teammate Eeli Tolvanen hustled back and made a diving attempt with his stick extended to thwart the play.

Tolvanen got his stick on the pass and inadvertently redirected it on net. Daccord, who was moving from his left to right, had to reach back to glove the puck.
