Oilers goalie Fasth (groin) exits after Kings score three goals


Kings coach Darryl Sutter had some nice things to say about Edmonton before tonight’s game, but the Oilers certainly haven’t looked like a team that can compete with the defending Stanley Cup champions so far tonight.

Compounding the Oilers’ problems was their announcement that goaltender Viktor Fasth has suffered a groin injury and will not return Tuesday. That marked the end of a rough night for him.

That 70s line of Jeff Carter, Tyler Toffoli, and Tanner Pearson struck again early in the first period to give the Kings the lead:

It wasn’t long before Justin Williams followed it up with his first goal of the season. The Kings’ hot unit struck again at 9:49 of the first frame thanks to Toffoli’s superb effort:

Fasth turned aside eight of the 11 shots he faced.

After starting the 2013-14 campaign with a 1-6-1 stretch, Edmonton is in danger of dropping its third straight game this season.
