First period: Kings 0, Oilers 0

The Kings didn’t want a repeat of Sunday’s first period against the Chicago Blackhawks, when they simply couldn’t keep up and fell behind by two goals. The Edmonton Oilers certainly were every bit as fast Tuesday as the Blackhawks. The difference was that the Kings didn’t give up a goal and went to the second period in a scoreless draw. “We kept them off the board, but they still got good looks,” Kings forward Mike Richards said of the Oilers during a between-periods TV interview. “We know they have good speed. … We have to score one here on the power play.” The Kings opened the second period with 44 seconds remaining on a man-advantage that carried over from the first.
