Oilers ‘showed a lot of maturity’ to rally for Game 4 win

Staring down a 3-1 series deficit in the Western Conference First Round, the Edmonton Oilers rallied twice, including from three goals down in the first period, to defeat the Los Angeles Kings 5-4 in overtime in Game 4 and get back on level ground in the best-of-7 series.

Trailing 3-0 entering the second period, Edmonton began its comeback when Evan Bouchard scored a power-play goal on a blast from the point at 4:55.Boston Bruins Drakter

Leon Draisaitl cut it to 3-2 at 9:41 after Connor McDavid forced a turnover by Kings defenseman Drew Doughty. He then scored another power-play goal for Edmonton to tie it 3-3 at 19:49.

However, in the third period it seemed things might slip away again when Matt Roy scored at 4:28 to put the Kings back in front.

But Jack Campbell, who replaced Stuart Skinner at the start of the second period, kept it a one-goal game when he stopped Viktor Arvidsson on a breakaway at 14:04, allowing Evander Kane to tie 4-4 with 3:02 remaining.Billige NHL Drakter

That came at 10:39 from Zach Hyman, who took a stretch pass from Bouchard, skated into the left circle and beat Joonas Korpisalo under his right arm.

It was a big goal for Edmonton, which had lost nine of its previous 10 overtime games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

One that sends the Oilers back home for Game 5 on Tuesday (9:30 p.m. ET; ESPN, CBC, SN, TVAS, KCOP-13) without the prospect of facing elimination.
