Kings Rally to Defeat Oilers 7-4
EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) _ Alexander Frolov had a goal and two assists and the Los Angeles Kings rallied to beat the Edmonton Oilers 7-4 on Thursday night. Dustin Brown, Rob Blake, Lubomir Visnovsky, Alyn McCauley, Sean Avery and Brian Willsie also scored for the Kings.
Ryan Smyth, Daniel Tjarnqvist, Jarret Stoll and Fernando Pisani scored for Edmonton. Smyth was back in the lineup less than a month after fracturing a thumb. Despite missing most of December, Smyth leads the Oilers with 17 goals.
Smyth gave Edmonton a 3-2 lead with a power-play goal early in the second period, and Stoll made it 4-2 just 32 seconds later with another power-play goal.
The Kings countered with a power-play goal of their own later in the period when Blake scored the first of the Kings’ five straight goals.
After Frolov tied it at 4, Avery put the Kings ahead to stay with 1:59 remaining in the second. Visnovsky and McCauley, into the empty net, scored in the third.
Notes: Blake played in his 700th game for the Kings. ... The Kings will complete their Alberta swing on Friday night in Calgary.
