The Day After: Los Angeles Kings 5 – Edmonton Oilers 1 — McDavid ejected, an agent tweets, and a coach goes off

The game plan against the Edmonton Oilers is pretty simple as of late. Come out fast, pressure the Oilers puck carriers, and get as many pucks on net as you can as quickly as you can. For the visiting Los Angeles Kings, that’s exactly what they did Sunday night in a 5-1 thumping against the Oilers at Rogers Place. A Rasmus Kupari goal three minutes into the opening frame to thank for that. It’s a concerning trend that has crept into the Oilers game in recent weeks. It started during a five

Oilers loss to Kings a consequence of playing with noncommittal effort

EDMONTON — This train only arrived at the station Sunday night, a day late and a dollar short in a 5-1 home-ice loss to the Los Angeles Kings. But it’s been stumbling down the tracks for some time now. “This has been coming for a while here. Been coming for a while,” repeated Edmonton Oilers head coach Dave Tippett, whose team had a dreary game Friday in Seattle, then didn’t get back to work to his liking come Saturday’s practice. He saw this effort coming: Soft, noncommittal, all

McDavid game misconduct opens door to three power-play goals, Kings win

EDMONTON – Sticking to the game plan was key, but having Connor McDavid kicked out with a game misconduct didn’t hurt the Los Angeles Kings either. Adrian Kempe scored a pair of goals and Los Angeles snapped a two-game losing skid by defeating the Edmonton Oilers 5-1 on Sunday. It was the Kings’ second win in their last nine outings. Rasmus Kupari, Drew Doughty and Trevor Moore also scored for the Kings (10-9-4), which scored three power-play goals in a span of 2:19 late in the third peri

Walsh then accused Tippett of not telling Lagesson that he’s out for Sunday’s game against the L.A. Kings, not telling him to skate with the scratches, then telling him just before the game he wouldn’t be playing. “It’s the k
