SEATTLE — Evander Kane needed just three shots to show the Edmonton Oilers can be more than just Connor McDavid. The timing couldn’t be better with the playoffs on the horizon.

Kane recorded his second hat trick of the season and the Oilers gained some cushion in the Western Conference playoff chase with a 6-4 win Saturday against the Seattle Kraken.

Kane capped the sixth three-goal game of his career by scoring on an odd-man rush with 9:40 remaining just after a power play for Seattle ended. Kane also scored Edmonton’s first goal less than two minutes into the game, and his second goal came 43 seconds into the second period.
