Seattle won its second straight to close out a six-game homestand and handed the red-hot Hurricanes just their third regulation loss of the season. It was the second straight setback for Carolina after losing to San Jose in overtime Monday night.

Seattle's Jared McCann scored on the power play at 4:16 of the second period and Johansson provided the winner in the closing minutes. Johansson circled the net, and his shot buzzed over Andersen’s left shoulder. It was Johansson’s second goal of the season and gave Seattle its first win this season when trailing after the first period.

Fantasy hockey: Top waiver adds for each category in Week 6

  Fantasy hockey: Top waiver adds for each category in Week 6 It's a Wild waiver wire in fantasy hockey for Week 6. Literally. Minnesota is one of nine teams with four games on its schedule for the upcoming week, and with so many of its players available in over 50 percent of Yahoo fantasy hockey leagues, the club finds itself as the go-to for managers to target. Here are the top waiver-wire adds for Week 6. Goals: RW Jordan Eberle, Seattle Kraken (35 percent rostered on Yahoo) Almost every shot JordanLiterally.

Brendan Smith gave Carolina an early lead at 18:32 of the first period when his slap shot from the point slipped past Grubauer, who was screened in front by Jordan Staal.

But that was all Carolina would get past Grubauer in his best performance to date for Seattle. Andersen made 20 saves.

Seattle pulled even in the second period as its power play that was dormant early in the season continued its rapid recovery. McCann’s goal was his fifth on the power play and the fifth straight game with a power-play goal for the Kraken. Seattle has scored on seven of its past 19 power-play opportunities after beginning the season with just three goals in 38 chances.

Grubauer was terrific when Carolina had the advantage, showing flashes of why Seattle made such a hefty investment in the goaltender. Andrei Svechnikov had a clear look off a faceoff that Grubauer kicked aside, and he made another save lunging across the goal to rob Teuvo Teravainen.
