Former Predators come back to haunt current Nashville Predators in loss to Seattle Kraken
Juuse Saros played in his 200th career game Wednesday night in Seattle.
The Nashville Predators responded with a 4-3 loss to the Seattle Kraken, ending the latter's seven-game winless streak.
Twenty-year-old Predators rookie Philip Tomasino put his team ahead 1-0 with 6 minutes, 47 seconds left in the first period, on just the ninth shot on goal of the game.
Roman Josi collected his 500th career point on the goal.
Josi made it 501 points on the Predators’ next goal, from the stick of Matt Duchene on the power play with 13:06 remaining in the second.
It was Duchene’s 24th goal of the season, and 11th on the power play.
The Kraken finally cracked the scoreboard shortly after on a goal from Alex Wennberg just 1:35 later.
Former Predator Calle Jarnkrok tied the score with 10:02 left in the second.

Former Predator Colin Blackwell gave the Kraken another one-goal lead 3:19 into the third, this of the shorthanded variety.
The Predators are 30-20-4, while the Kraken is 17-34-5.
