The Kings outshot the Oilers 48-18 in regulation and overtime. Nail Yakupov scored for Edmonton on a power play in the second period and Mike Richards tied it less than 14 minutes later.
The Kings are 5-0 in games that have gone past regulation. Jonathan Quick improved to 4-0 in shootouts, having stopped 10 of 11 shots he's faced in tiebreakers. In 2010-11, he led the NHL with 10 shootout wins and had an .818 save percentage.
Richard Bachman made a career-high 47 saves in his Oilers debut after getting recalled Sunday from Oklahoma City of the American Hockey League.
We don't have any excuses tonight. Excuses are for losers. We've played with five defensemen before and it didn't affect us. We just had a bad second period and it cost us the game. We have to look in the mirror and blame ourselves.
