Oilers Make Another Statement, Beat Kings Using Measuring Stick

Oilers Dominate Kings, Continue Impressive Start

The Edmonton Oilers put on a dominant performance against the Los Angeles Kings, winning 5-2 and making a statement in the Western Conference. The victory extends their winning streak to three games and improves their record to 6-2-0. Connor McDavid led the charge with a goal and two assists, while Leon Draisaitl and Zach Hyman each added a goal and an assist.

Power Play Struggles Continue for Kings

The Kings’ power play woes continued against the Oilers, as they went 0-for-4 with the man advantage. This marks the third straight game in which the Kings have failed to score on the power play, dropping them to 28th in the league in power-play efficiency.

Oilers’ Penalty Kill Shines

On the other side of the ice, the Oilers’ penalty kill was perfect, shutting down the Kings on all three of their power-play opportunities. This was a significant improvement over their previous performance, as they had allowed three power-play goals in their last two games.

Smith Strong in Net

Mike Smith was solid in net for the Oilers, stopping 28 of the 30 shots he faced. He made several key saves in the second period to keep the Kings from getting back into the game.

Oilers Move Up in Standings

With the victory, the Oilers moved into a tie for second place in the Pacific Division, just one point behind the Vegas Golden Knights. They will look to continue their winning ways when they host the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday.
