Nashville Predators live score updates, highlights vs. Seattle Kraken
Tommy Novak has his fifth goal of the season on the first period power play, with assists from Colton Sissons and Luke Evangelista. Sissons had just skated out of the penalty box after serving his own penalty.
Gus Nyquist went down the tunnel earlier in the period after absorbing a high stick by Adam Larsson, setting up a Predators 5-on-3 that was neutralized by that Sissons penalty. Larsson was assessed a double minor on the play.
But Novak gets the power-play goal moments later. He’s had a strong start to the season.
Predators 1, Kraken 0 at 6:35 of the first period.
