Karel Vejmelka made 20 saves, but the Arizona Coyotes fell 5-0 to the Seattle Kraken on Tuesday.

Shane Wright, Andre Burakovsky, Justin Schultz, Brandon Tanev, and Will Borgen scored for the Kraken, who won their second straight game. Philipp Grubauer made 39 saves to earn his 14th win of the season.

The Coyotes outshot the Kraken 39-25, including 18-9 in the second period.

"We had a lot of Grade-A chances, but we didn't have a lot of time to execute," head coach André Tourigny said. "It's not easy. For us, we need to learn from it."

Recap: Coyotes at Kraken 4.9.24

Arizona finished the season series 2-1-0 against Seattle this season. Defenseman Maksymilian Szuber made his NHL debut, logging 17:01 of ice time in his first career game.

The 2022 draft pick has six goals and 18 assists in 67 games with the Tucson Roadrunners -- his first season of professional hockey.

"He made good decisions with the puck," Tourigny said. "He competed and had a long stick. I liked what I saw."

Wright opened the scoring just 1:08 into the game, firing a shot on net that found its way past Vejmelka. Burakovsky made it 2-0 just over a minute later with a power-play goal, firing a rebound from the right circle into the net.

Schultz made it 3-0 4:29 into the second period, taking a pass from Oliver Bjorkstrand on an odd-man rush before beating Vejmelka.
Tanev made it 4-0 at 6:38 of the third just as a power play expired before Borgen rounded out the scoring at 9:35 of the final frame.

The Coyotes are back in action on Wednesday against the Vancouver Canucks, playing in the second of back-to-back games. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:30 pm MST, and the game will be broadcast on Arizona 61 (TV) and ESPN 620 (Radio).
