The Seattle Kraken may only be in their second season, but they've already etched their name into the NHL record books.

The Kraken became the first team in league history to sweep a road trip of seven or more games by defeating the Chicago Blackhawks 8-5 on Saturday.

Here's a closer look at Seattle's run:

Opponent Result
Oilers 5-2 W
Maple Leafs 5-1 W
Senators 8-4 W
Canadiens 4-0 W
Sabres 4-3 W
Bruins 3-0 W
Blackhawks 8-5 W

The Kraken have outscored their opponents 37-15 during the heater. They also won or tied 18 of 21 periods.

Seattle won its last contest before taking off for the road trip. In total, the team has won eight games in a row, setting a new franchise record.

Jared McCann set the pace Saturday with the second hat trick in club history. The Kraken, who amazingly scored on six of their first seven shots in the contest, also received goals from Daniel Sprong, Matty Beniers, Andre Burakovsky, Eeli Tolvanen, and Oliver Bjorkstrand.
