The Oilers came out colder than a December night, giving up the first three A-grade chances and one goal before their feet started to move.

Things didn’t improve much as the game progressed. Much as Edmonton may have started to do in the bottom of the third, Connor McDavid slammed Kings forward Adrian Kempe into the boards from behind, a bang-bang play that earned McDavid a questionable major penalty and an eject. match.

The score was 2-1 before McD’s penalty, with Edmonton still having a shot, but LA quickly scored three power-play goals.

It was Edmonton’s first two-game losing streak of the year and it was done in a decisive fashion.

In the end, Edmonton has nine Grade A shots, the LA Kings have ten ( current account ).

Connor McDavid, 4. He landed a powerful shot on goal on the power play in the second period, his first real glimmer on offense. He almost scored later in the second after Hyman took him hard at the net. He was given a premature penalty for blasting Kempe in the boards at the end of the third. It turned out to be the middle finger. Questionable call and that, in essence, killed the Oilers’ chances in the game.

Leon Draisitl, 5. He couldn’t climb high enough this match. He got Edmonton’s first Class A power play shot sixteen minutes into the game. In the second, he prepared Puljujarvi for a nasty setback. Other than that, not much.

Jesse Puljujarvi, 4. It was a silent race for the aircraft carrier at the start of the match, but it unleashed a nasty explosion within a second that nearly beat Quick. But do little else.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, 5. He was beaten boards 10 seconds into the game, the main culprit in LA’s 5 Alarm First Chance. He was placed low for Edmonton’s best scoring opportunity of the first, but he decided to pass instead of shooting and the pass got lost. But his backhand reversal on Nurse was key to that goal.

Zach Hyman, 7 ans. Almost scored on a rebound on the power play in the second. Short but brilliant little pass to start Nurse’s goal streak. Thrown a heavy blow at Bjornfot within the second. Great effort at the end of that same period to get him to the net for a dangerous chance himself and a rebound chance from McD.

Kailer Yamamoto 4. Hmmm. Need to ride it. Finally, in the third, he landed an A grade shot, a 5 alarms during a slot machine race.

Derek Ryan, 3. Part of the pain streak on LA’s first goal, losing a plateau battle in the n area. He fell into the o zone to create a weird run and start the pain streak on LA’s fourth base. Edmonton has a shot for, 10 against when it was on the ice evenly.

Colton Sceviour, 6. I can see it well. Intelligent low event reader. He made a huge defensive save in the third period, taking Grundstrom’s stick in the box and striking out an LA goal.

Warren Foegele, 5. I got one Class B shot at net, then two Class A jams after he took it hard at the net in third.

Ryan McLeod, 6 ans. He’s centered the Bako line with Tyler Benson and Zack Kassian – they’re two ex-Bakersfield Condors and a guy who needs to raise his level of play if he doesn’t want to end up there. Edmonton’s fourth row has seen some solid changes. In fact, they were Edmonton’s most efficient line earlier. He failed to take the man on LA’s fifth goal.

Zack Kassian, 6 ans. Bounces from a bad match with a good one. Better with the puck. The Oilers had six shots and allowed just two while on the ice evenly.

Tyler Benson, 6 ans. Pretty well combined with his former teammate McLeod. Fuck it all up, hit when he can, try to find his way in the NHL and make some progress.

Darnell Nurse, 6. Back in the game after a two week injury break, a little rusty in the first with two major mistakes on grade A shots failing to cut passes. He also made a turnover that was almost converted to a goal, but the Kings forward stoked his shot. He awarded the B-grade shot that beat Kosk for LA’s second goal. But I got it back with a perfectly placed snipe that went on the top shelf where mom keeps the cookies. He played 26:35.

Evan Bouchard, 3 . He was playing better in defense, but things turned sour this game when he was teamed up with Nurse again. He was beaten second on a dangerous opportunity from Arvidsson. The two calmed down and began to play much more effective hockey as the game progressed. But Bouch allowed Kempe to shoot the rebound for LA’s third goal. He was also beaten on the pass for LA’s fifth goal, a trashy but still major time error.

Tyson Barrie, 6. His second period wrist shot resulted in two 5-alarm shots on Quick, but Quick made some great saves. He was beaten by Iafollo in the rush of the third.

Markus Niemelainen, 6. His physical game is impressive, but his overtaking? Some bugs here and there. He gets a full extra grade for blasting Oilers nemesis Dustin Brown with a nasty blow. Crushed Arvidsson later in the match. He cleared the assist on LA’s fourth goal in record time.

Kris Russell, 4. He got muscular on the boards during LA’s first goal. It was his only even-matched Category A mistake of the night, but it turned out to be costly. He was otherwise solid. He was part of the group that was beaten on the Kings’ fourth goal in a blink of an eye.

Philippe Broberg, 4th He came down to stop the pass on LA’s first base but failed to stop the pass. It would have been better to keep his feet and eliminate the potential shooter. Other than that, I played a good game in defense.

Mikko Koskinen, 4. Good 15-second save in the Arvidsson shooting range match. Indeed, he was keen on a number of Los Angeles’ grade A and B shots on goal. The opener was not his fault, but he was beaten by an Arvidsson shooter from the outside for the post to save him a moment later. He had to stop Kempe’s shot on LA’s second goal.

Agent Allan Walsh let Tippett down here. That’s the kind of comment you’d expect from an arsonist standing up for their client. I’m sure it won’t help Lagesson’s cause. He’s a marginal player trying to find his way. It’s not sure that trying to embarrass his coaches is the right idea, but Tippett will likely ignore him, given the source.
