The Cinderella story for the Kraken has come to a close in dramatic fashion
Just like their entire season, Seattle had their backs to the wall and tried to make something magical happen. Down 2-0 with only 16 ticks left in the third period, Oliver Bjorkstrand tried to will his team from the dead. He scored an amazing goal, which set up a chilling face-off with everyone holding their breaths.
The Kraken had a few cracks at the net, but could not put it in the hole, as the Dallas Stars advanced to play the Las Vegas Knights as they pulled off the 2-1 victory. "I'm super proud, honestly," Kraken center Yanni Gourde said. "We built something here this year. I think we took a lot of steps in the right direction. Every time, we stepped up. We never quit."
