Kings fall to Oilers in Game 4 on Zach Hyman’s overtime goal

Zach Hyman scored in overtime to lead the Edmonton Oilers to a 5-4 comeback win over the Kings in Game 4 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals Sunday night at the Arena.

Minutes after the Kings successfully completed an Edmonton power play, Hyman found a lane and pulled in a left circle shot that went under the blocking arm of Kings goaltender Joonas Korpisalo for the winner.

The best-of-seven series is 2-2 when it returns to Canada for Game 5 on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. PDT.

The Kings took a 3-0 lead in the first period with goals from Gabe Vilardi, Vikor Arvidsson and Anze Kopitar. The Oilers hit back in the second round, finishing the game with a goal from Evan Bouchard and two from Leon Draisaitl.

Matt Roy put the Kings back ahead when he charged into the slot and took a long feed from Arvidsson before deflecting a shot under Oilers goalie Jack Campbell.

As the Oilers pressed into the last five minutes of regulation, Evander Kane smashed the puck past Korpisalo to send the game into overtime.

Kevin Fiala, playing from injury in his first game of the series, assisted on goals from Vilardi and Kopitar. Campbell took over starting goaltender Stuart Skinner early in the second period for the Oilers.
