It was a game that kept fans on the edge of their seats.
With less than seven minutes left in the game, Oilers Taylor Hall managed tie up the game on a power play, but the Kings were quick to answer and ended up walking away with a 3-2 win.
“Obviously we had some chances too to get a cushion but we couldn’t score. It felt like we were playing our game though, sticking to our game plan,” said Los Angeles Kings Anze Kopitar.
Having now won five games in a row, Tanner Pearson says it looks like the team has adjusted its sails from their first three losses and are getting into their groove.
“Obviously we got off to a slow start at the beginning of the year, but I think we’ve learned from that,” said Pearson.
Kopitar agrees with his teammate.
“We’re playing our game. Obviously when we’re going good, our specialty is going good. Minus the goal we gave up on the PK but again we came out with the big power-play goal by sticking to our system,” he said.
“We know how we have to play too when tie games like these and we stuck to our game plan really well.”
