SEATTLE (AP) — Jordan Eberle had the first hat trick in Seattle franchise history by scoring three goals in less than 10 minutes of the second and third periods, and the Kraken beat the Buffalo Sabres 5-2.

The loss capped a long, emotional day for the Sabres that began with the trade of former captain Jack Eichel to the Vegas Golden Knights and ended with Buffalo's third straight loss on its West Coast swing.

Seattle snapped a two-game losing streak as Eberle posted the fourth hat trick of his career.
