Edmonton, Alberta • The Los Angeles Kings are winning game after game — even when they aren’t at their best.
Jeff Carter had two goals and an assist as the Los Angeles Kings won their seventh straight with a 4-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday night.
"Tonight wasn’t our best game by any means, not even close, but we found a way and just stuck with it," forward Jarret Stoll said. "We didn’t really have our legs at some points, but you have to find ways to win. Dirty ways, ugly ways, whatever."
Alec Martinez and Salt Lake City native Trevor Lewis also scored for the Kings (37-22-6), who are on their longest winning streak since taking nine in a row in 2010.
The Kings made it 4-1 with four minutes left in the middle frame as Carter fed a pass to a hard-charging Lewis, who fluttered a shot that Ben Scrivens could only wave his glove at. It was just Lewis’ third goal in 56 games this season.
