LOS ANGELES (AP) — Brandon Tanev scored the go-ahead goal early in the second period and the Seattle Kraken rebounded from an opening loss to beat the Los Angeles Kings 4-1 on Thursday night.

Kraken 4, Kings 1: Box Score

Jaden Schwartz, Alex Wennberg and Adam Larsson also scored for the Kraken and Martin Jones made 28 saves.

Seattle bounced back from a 5-4 overtime loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday night, when the Kraken squandered a two-goal lead in the third period.

Alex Iafallo had Los Angeles’ lone goal and Jonathan Quick stopped 18 shots. The Kings have dropped their first two games.

Tanev, who had nine goals and 15 points in 30 games last season before suffering a season-ending knee injury, got his first goal in 11 career games against the Kings at 6:08 of the second period. He won possession of the puck in the corner, got past Adrian Kempe and then put a wrist shot above Quick’s shoulder on the short side.

Seven minutes later, Wennberg gave the Kraken a two-goal advantage when he grabbed Matty Beniers’ pass at the front of the net and put it past Quick.

It was tied 1-1 after 20 minutes after both teams scored on the power play. Seattle scored first at 5:21 Schwartz put in a rebound after Quick made a pad save on Jordan Eberle’s shot from the slot. Two minutes later, Iafallo evened it on a wraparound after the Kings won the faceoff.

Larsson added an empty-net goal with 1:01 remaining.

QUICK START

Beniers had an assist and became the sixth player in the NHL’s modern era (since 1943-44) to find the score sheet in at least 11 of his first 12 career games. He joins Jonathan Toews, Rob Gaudreau, Teemu Selanne, Dimitri Kvartalnov and Joe Sakic. Kvartalnov and Sakic had a point in their first 12 games.

Beniers, the second overall pick in the 2021 draft, has 12 points (four goals, eight assists) in his first 12 games.

CLARKE’S DEBUT

Los Angeles defenseman Brandt Clarke made his NHL debut. The 19-year old Clarke, the eighth overall pick in the 2021 draft, is the 32nd teenager to play for the Kings and the fourth to make his debut in Todd McLellan’s four seasons as coach. The others were Tobias Bjornfot, Arthur Kaliyev and Quinton Byfield.
