THREE STARS

1. Jonathan Quick, LA

Came up with a number of huge saves to break the Oilers hearts.

2. Wayne Simmonds, LA

Had a strong game, scoring the eventual game winner.

3. Fernando Pisani, EDM

Gave the home team some life with a goal in the second period.

WHY THEY LOST

They gave the Kings a needless head start, then couldn't reel them in despite outplaying them for two periods.

BIG PLAY

Andrew Cogliano centres the puck to Ethan Moreau in front, who is denied by goaltender Jonathan Quick. The puck comes back to Cogliano along the goal-line who fires it across, hits a leg in front, bounces off the post and somehow stays out of the net.

BIG FIGHT

Oilers defenceman Theo Peckham and Kings forward Brian Boyle square off in a first period bout. Boyle lands a couple of early blows, but Peckham finishes the fight with a shot right on the button.
