The Oilers played a spectacular game 2 where they defeated the LA Kings by a 6-0 margin. They’d like to pick right up where they left off as they’re in LA for the third game of the series. Can the Oilers keep the good times going tonight?

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- EARLY GOALS: The Oilers scored 82 seconds into Game 2 when Leon Draisaitl made it 1-0 on the power play. The longer the Kings get to hang around, the more likely it seems that they’ll eek one out. Score early, and score often.
- THE GOOD SMITH: Mike Smith stopped all 30 shots en route to a shutout victory in Wednesday’s 6-0 win back in Edmonton. Can we get something like that again tonight?
- SPECIAL TEAMS: The Oilers are 4/8 on the power play so far this series. 50% won’t last forever, but can it last for a few more games?
Oilers can take a commanding 2-1 lead with a win tonight. Let’s see it.
