The Edmonton Oilers were shutout for the second time this season, falling 4-0 Saturday night in Los Angeles.



After a scoreless first period, the Kings took control with goals 49 seconds apart early in the second. Pierre-Luc Dubois whizzed a power play shot from the right wing past Stuart Skinner. Then Quinton Byfield set up Trevor Lewis for a goal on two-on-one. Corey Perry appeared to have his first goal as an Oiler halfway through the second as he took a pass down low from Leon Draisaitl, but David Rittich came up with a sprawling right pad save.
