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.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
