article imageNHL Scores: LA Kings top Oilers for seventh straight victory

By Larry Seely     Mar 10, 2014 in Sports
Edmonton - The LA Kings are playing their best hockey of the year, winning for the seventh straight game with a 4-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers.
Jeff Carter scored two goals and added an assist to help in the win. Los Angeles is now 37-22-6 for the 2013-14 NHL season and on the longest win streak for the franchise since 2010.
Despite their play on Sunday night, Jarret Stoll told reporters after the game the Kings didn't play well. This late in the year players are bound to be tired, but LA found ways to get the puck in the net and used some good work in the net to keep the winning streak alive.
Alec Martinez and Trevor Lewis scored the other two goals of the game for the LA Kings. Edmonton countered with scores from Taylor Hall and Sam Gagner and the Oilers coach was pleased with the play of his young squad, despite the loss snapping the teams mini two game win streak.
Kings goalie Jonathan Quick stopped 25 of the 27 shots he faced. Edmonton started Ben Scrivens, former backup for LA stopped an amazing 46 shots, but the constant barrage of scoring chances was just too much for the young goalie in the end.
