VANCOUVER – Ryan Donato scored with 41 seconds remaining in overtime to give the Seattle Kraken a 4-3 win against the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Arena on Thursday.

Donato skated in on a breakaway and deked Arturs Silovs before roofing a backhand.

Kole Lind and John Hayden scored in the third period, and Will Borgen had two assists for Seattle. Joey Daccord allowed three goals on 21 shots in 30:19 before being replaced by Martin Jones, who stopped all 15 shots he faced.

Andrei Kuzmenko had two goals and an assist, Elias Pettersson and J.T. Miller each had two assists, and Thatcher Demko allowed one goal on 18 shots in two periods for Vancouver. Silovs made eight saves in relief.

Kuzmenko, who signed a one-year, entry-level contract on July 13, gave the Canucks a 1-0 lead at 2:51 of the first period before extending it to 2-0 with a power-play goal at 9:56.

Tye Kartye scored a power-play goal to cut it to 2-1 at 12:44, but Tanner Pearson responded with his own goal on the man-advantage to restore Vancouver’s two-goal lead at 16:55.

Lind cut it to 3-2 at 4:02 of the third period, and Hayden tied it 3-3 at 12:33.
