Donning their Reverse Retro jerseys for the first time this season, the Edmonton Oilers hosted the Los Angeles Kings in a Pacific Division matchup. It was the first time the two teams met since last year’s playoffs series. It was a bit of a weird game for Edmonton, and unfortunately their offence was shutdown.
The game flow looked like it was mostly in the Oilers’ favour, as all three periods saw the Oilers having a larger share of Corsi. However, the Kings’ defence was a bit too good at getting in the way, making a whopping 29 blocks to divert the Oilers’ shots away from Calvin Petersen. On the other hand, the Kings were opportunistic with their limited shot attempts and directed most of them onto Stuart Skinner.
Ultimately, it was a frustrating game for Edmonton as the Kings’ efficiency on both ends of the ice outdid the Oilers’ effort. Edmonton drops the game by a final score of 3–1.
