EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -- Taylor Hall scored at 3:06 of overtime to lift Edmonton to a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday night, snapping the Oilers' five game losing streak. Hall scored his 15th of the season on a power play after a terrific backhand pass from Shawn Horcoff. Josh Green scored in regulation for the Oilers, who have just three wins in their last 15 games. Justin Williams scored for the Kings, who were 2-0-1 in their three previous games to move three points behind San Jose for first place in the Pacific Division. Edmonton started the scoring just past the midpoint of the first period as Jeff Petry's blast from the point as a penalty expired was tipped by Green past Kings goalie Jonathan Quick. It was Green's first goal since he scored one against Montreal on Jan. 16, 2007. The Oilers came close to making it 2-0 a few minutes later when Hall had an open net to shoot at but couldn't get a backhand shot up after being knocked down to the ice. Edmonton outshot Los Angeles 12-6 in the first period, and kept the pressure coming. The Oilers were robbed of a goal 7 minutes into the second when Quick made a stop on Green's shot and then came across the crease to make a tremendous glove save to take a goal away from Ryan Jones. Quick did it again with 5 minutes left in the second as he came across to stop Sam Gagner with a pad save after a nice bit of tic-tac-toe passing by the Oilers' top unit. The Kings tied the game 6 minutes into the third when Williams tipped Slava Voynov's point shot past Edmonton goalie Devan Dubnyk. Anze Kopitar picked up his 400th career NHL point on the play. NOTES: It was the second of four meetings this season between the two teams. The Oilers won the first matchup 3-0 in Los Angeles in November. The Kings swept their four-game series with the Oilers last year. ... The Oilers are banged up with their two leading scorers, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle, both expected to be out until after the All-Star game. Forward Eric Belanger missed his first game of the season with a leg injury. Also out of the lineup were defensemen Tom Gilbert, Ryan Whitney and Cam Barker. ... The Kings are much better off on the injury front, missing Simon Gagne, out indefinitely with a concussion, and Scott Parse, who will miss the remainder of the season for hip surgery. ... Los Angeles dropped to 7-1-5 since Darryl Sutter took over behind the bench just before Christmas. ... Eight of the Kings' last 14 games were tied after regulation time.
