The Oilers play Game 2 in Anaheim on Friday. The game can be seen on Sportsnet and heard on the Oilers Radio Network, including 630 CHED. Puck drop is 8:45 p.m. MDT.


THE SCOOP: Four goals in a span of 4:25 - two by each team - broke a tight game wide open while two goals apiece from Adam Larsson and Mark Letestu led the Oilers to a wild 5-3 victory in Anaheim.

PLAY OF THE GAME: With just over four minutes to play, Adam Larsson skated into the zone and threw the puck into the crease after skating past the goal line. It went in off the skate of Josh Manson and past Gibson for the game winner.

FIRST STAR: Mark Letestu had a pair of power play goals and overall was outstanding for the visiting club but this honour has to go to Larsson, who netted the first two-goal game of his career in extremely timely fashion.

TRENDING UP: Anton Slepyshev was all over the ice for the Oilers. He had a partial breakaway on two different occasions, got physical in a goaltender interference call and just generally was a handful for the Ducks.

WHAT'S NEXT: Game 2 will be played Friday back here at the Honda Center. The game time will be 8:30 PM MDT.
