16:51: After three minutes of play, the only three shots of the game have gone to the Kings.

4:21: Oilers generate some of their best chances of the game so far with the exception of Yakupov's near-goal, firing a couple of shots at point-blank range on Quick.

1:04: A turnover in the neutral zone created an odd-man rush for the Kings as Marian Gaborik skated up ice with the puck. Talbot made the initial save off Gaborik but Tanner Pearson picked up the rebound, spinning and firing the puck top shelf for the goal. | LA 2, EDM 0
