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.
