Summary of NHL games, Sunday, February 12, 2023

Jaden Schwartz found the back of the net twice to guide the Seattle Kraken to a 4-3 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

His two goals allow Schwartz to reach the dozen.

The Kraken curbs their losing streak to three while the Flyers extend to two.

Seattle is 17-8-2 on the road.

The Flyers have lost three of their last four games.

Owen Tippett put the Flyers ahead at 2:11 of the first period before seeing Jordan Eberle and Eeli Tolvanen turn things around to give Seattle the lead.

Tippett’s power-play goal was his team’s first in his last 23 superior games.

It was Tolvanen’s ninth goal since Jan. 1, the most by a player on his team during that streak.

James van Riemsdyk made it 2-2 in the middle period before Schwartz’s first goal put Seattle back in front.

Trailing by two goals, Patrick Brown gave the Flyers hope when they were shorthanded in the end, but time ran out.

In the win, goaltender Philipp Grubauer gave up three times on 18 shots while Felix Sandstrom was beat four times on 21 shots.

The two clubs will meet again on Thursday in Seattle. Before that, the Kraken’s five-game road trip wraps up Tuesday in Winnipeg.
