Kings beat Oilers 2-1 in shootout; Bachman makes 47 saves in Edmonton debut

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Anze Kopitar scored the deciding goal in a shootout and the Los Angeles Kings beat the Edmonton Oilers 2-1 on Sunday night for their seventh victory in nine games.

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.

Quote of the Day

They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.
