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?


  • 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.
