EDMONTON — The Los Angeles Kings scored three goals in a five-minute major for Connor McDavid in the third period to win 5-1 over the Edmonton Oilers at Rogers Place on Sunday.
Darnell Nurse scored for Edmonton (16-7-0) who have lost back-to-back games for the first time this season. Edmonton had won its previous five games after a loss. Mikko Koskinen made 35 saves for the Oilers.
McDavid was given a major boarding for a hit on Kempe with 6:33 left in the third period.
In the power play that followed, Kempe scored from a rebound on a single shot from Arthur Kaliev at 2:38 p.m. to bring the score to 3-1. Doughty scored at 4:03 pm, converting a pass from Anze Kopitar to make 4-1, and Trevor Moore scored at 4:57 pm for 5-1.
In the first period, Rasmus Kupari scored at 2:01 to give the Kings a 1-0 lead. He slapped a Moore pass over sprawling Oilers defenseman Philip Broberg.
Kempe made it 2-0 at 1:42 of the second period, scoring from a shot from the right face-off circle.
Nurse scored shorthanded at 10:04 to make it 2-1. The Oilers defenseman was back in the lineup for the first time since missing six games with a broken finger suffered by blocking a shot. He scored at a sharp angle as he lifted the puck over Quick in a 3v2 run.
