In Game 1 of the series against the Edmonton Oilers, the Los Angeles Kings secured a win despite being outshot 40-35.


They made a remarkable comeback from a 3-1 deficit in the third period, with Adrian Kempe leading the way with a pair of goals.


However, in Game 2, the Kings once again mounted a comeback but failed to finish the job, ultimately falling short.


If they want to advance and eliminate the Oilers, the Kings will need to shore up their defense and find a way to slow down Edmonton’s dynamic offense.


After Game 2, Los Angeles center Philip Danault acknowledged that their performance improved after a slow start in the first 20 minutes, but they need to play a full 60-minute game to be successful against the Oilers.
