Adrian Kempe silences Oilers' fans with a savage OT celebration

It's been a very interesting series between the Edmonton Oilers and Los Angeles Kings. The Oilers were the odds on favourites entering the series, but as in the case in previous years have struggled in the first round.

With the series tied 2-2 the series shifted back to Edmonton for game five Tuesday night. The Oilers started off slow letting the Kings strike early to build the lead. The Kings would keep the lead into the 3rd Period but Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl would work to tie the game up, forcing overtime.

Unfortunately for the Oilers this one didn't have a happy ending. As Adrian Kempe would score the winning goal just 1:12 into overtime giving the Kings a 5-4 overtime win and a 3-2 series lead heading back to Los Angeles.




After scoring, Kempe would then gesture to the Oilers' crowd that "he can't hear them".


With the Oilers down 3-2 in the series there has to be some major concerns heading into LA where the Kings will be able to match Philip Danault against McDavid all night long.
