LOS ANGELES — Tanner Pearson scored a goal and tallied two assists, Marian Gaborik scored a goal and added an assist, and both Milan Lucic and Nick Shore scored a goal each, leading the Los Angeles Kings to a 4-3 win over the Edmonton Oilers at Staples Center on Saturday night.
Despite the four-goal outburst and the multi-point games by Pearson and the slumping Gaborik, the Kings sagged for a portion of the first period, most of the second period, and in spots during the third period, breathing life into the Oilers, who tied the game at 15:10 of the third period on a goal by Taylor Hall.
Shore scored at the 18:23 mark to seal the victory for the Kings.
Audio of post-game interviews with Gaborik, Pearson and Shore, portions of which were not carried on the television post-game show, can be heard below.
