Kraken go behind early and fall hard to Pittsburgh Penguins, 6-1

Slow starts had been an issue for the Kraken the first month-plus of the season but appeared to be a thing of the past on the recent winning stretch. Alas, Grubauer was far from the only culprit in the early going of this one as the Kraken tossed the puck around like a live grenade in their own zone. A series of turnovers, the final one by Jeremy Lauzon, led to Carter banking one in off Grubauer’s stick as the goalie tried a failed poke check just 1:47 into the game.
