Taylor Hall scored a power play goal with under two minutes remaining in overtime Sunday night, leading the Edmonton Oilers to a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings at Rexall Place in Edmonton. Justin Williams was called for high sticking at 2:45 of overtime, and Hall ended the game 21 seconds later.

Jonathan Quick saved 31 of 33 shots in the loss. The Kings under new head coach Darryl Sutter have lost in regulation only once, gaining a point in 12 of his 13 games behind the bench. The Kings are 7-1-5 under Sutter.

Josh Green opened the scoring with his first goal of the season for Edmonton at 11:21 of the first period, assisted by Jeff Petry and Magnus Paajarvi. Williams was able to tie the score at 6:22 of the third period with his eighth goal of the season, assisted by Slava Voynov and Anze Kopitar. For Kopitar, it was his team-leading 28th assist of the season.

The Oilers outshot the Kings 33-21 on the night, including 25-14 in the first two periods. The Kings conclude their three-game road trip Tuesday night with a battle against the Vancouver Canucks, first place in the Northwest Division.
