Final: Oilers 2 – Kings 1 (OT)
The Oilers tied the game in the waning seconds of the third period and Sam Gagner won it with a power-play goal at 3:01 of overtime, as Edmonton came from behind to beat the Kings 2-1.
Edmonton pulled their goalie late and Nail Yakupov tied the game with 4.7 seconds left in the third period. This came just after the Oilers had a goal disallowed due to a player in the crease.
The Kings finally opened the scoring 13:26 into the second period on a breakaway goal by Jeff Carter, his first of the season. Kyle Clifford earned an assist and now has points in all three games this season.
Power plays were the name of the game in the first period, but neither team could capitalize. The Kings had five power plays in the opening frame, including a full two-minute five-on-three advantage. Edmonton then had three straight power play chances, including a two-man advantage for 1:48.
