Kings spoil the Oilers & O’Sullivan’s playoff hopes

Posted By Aziz Khalil On Apr 8 2009 @ 3:04 pm In Los Angeles Kings | No Comments

After being dealt to the Edmonton Oilers, Patrick O'Sullivan was confused and shocked. Before the game against Los Angeles on Tuesday night, O'Sullivan played 16 games with Edmonton scoring 1 goal, 4 assists, -6 rating and 12 penalty minutes. Although we can't judge the Williams-O'Sullivan-Cole trade until next season, once are 3 players go through their respective training camp and get to know their teammates better.

Having lost to the Flames on the previous night, the Kings came out hungry against the Oilers. Alexander Frolov tallied his 31st goal of the year 0:55 seconds in the game. 2 minutes later, Wayne Simmonds scored his 8th goal, and his officially on a 2 game scoring streak. The lone scorer for Edmonton was Fernando Pisani, meaning O'Sullivan has only scored 1 goal in 17 games with only 4 assists. The final score was 2-1 for the Los Angeles Kings.

The healthy scratches for LA were Derek Armstrong, Kyle Calder, Oscar Moller, Kyle Quincey (back surgery), Jarret Stoll (injured), Corey Elkins. These were the line combinations:



Although the Kings are eliminated from the playoffs, they came out and spoiled the party for Edmonton. Jon Quick had a tremendous game, stopping 38 shots and his record is now 20-17-2 with a SV% of .913 and GAA of 2.50. He really does look like he's going to be the goalie of our future and Kings fan hope so.
