The LA Kings defeated the Edmonton Oilers 4-0 in Game 4 of their series on Sunday evening. The series now shifts back to Edmonton, tied 2-2.

Trevor Moore opened the scoring 8:03 mark of the first period. The play was set up by a beautiful feed from Phillip Danault in front of the Edmonton goal for what was essentially a tap-in.

Exactly six minutes later, Troy Stecher fired a blast from the point that was re-directed by Oilers defenseman Duncan Keith and past Mike Smith to make it a 2-0 Kings advantage.

The goal also marked the first LA Kings defenseman to tally a goal in this series.

Vintage Jonathan Quick made another appearance, making some unbelievable saves to keep Edmonton off the board, including a bare-handed save in the middle frame. Sunday was the 36-year-old’s tenth career shutout in the playoffs.

Carl Grundstrom added an insurance goal in the third period. The goal was reviewed whether Grundstrom pushed the puck into the net with his hands after Darnell Nurse tripped him, but the call on the ice was upheld.

Grundstrom would add the dagger with an empty netter with just over 90 seconds to go.
