Series wrap-up: Kings win again in overtime
Last night saw the first Game 3 of the Stanley Cup playoffs, with all eight teams in the first wave of four series in action.

Here are the highlights.

1. Kings surprise Oilers again with overtime win

Many were surprised by the Kings’ overtime win in Game 1 of the series.

Most field hockey fans see the Oilers winning this series, but once again last night, the Kings proved that they are by no means to be taken lightly.

They have more than a fighting chance of winning this series, especially after taking Game 3 by a score of 3-2 in overtime last night.

Despite Connor McDavid’s awakening with his first two goals of the series, the Oilers couldn’t find a way to win.

Two truly impressive shots from the world’s best player.

Still, the Kings found a way to force overtime, and eventually prevailed thanks to Trevor Moore.

Moore is the first California-born player to score an overtime winner in the playoffs for a California team.

The Kings lead the series 2-1.

2. Bruins cope despite absences of Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci

The Boston Bruins needed to respond strongly in Game 3, after being dominated by the Panthers in Game 2.

Well, that’s exactly what the Bruins did, despite the absences of Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci.

They found a way to escape with a 4-2 victory.

It’s a much closer series than some imagined, with the Panthers still in the hunt.

The Bruins lead the series 2-1.

3. Wild regain series lead with Filip Gustavsson in goal

Dean Evason’s decision to give the net to Marc-André Fleury in Game 2 of the series was the talk of the town, and was roundly criticized, especially after the 7-3 loss.

Filip Gustavsson was back in goal for the Wild last night in Game 3.

The Swedish goaltender wasn’t as busy as in the first game of the series (he turned aside 51 of 53 shots), but his 23 saves on 24 shots still enabled the Wild to win 5-1.

In the victory, Marcus Johansson scored a beauty, while Mats Zuccarrello scored two goals.

4. A record four goals in 2:18 put the Islanders back in the series

The Islanders absolutely had to win Game 3 of this series, when they were already trailing 2-0.

Well, that’s exactly what they did, winning their first game of the series, which also represents the first series win at UBS Arena.

Casey Cizikas scored the first goal of the series at the UBS Arena.

It was a very close game until the very end of the third period, when the Islanders took control with two goals in 44 seconds, and eventually four goals in 2 minutes and 18 seconds, which is a record in NHL history.

A very big win for the Islanders, who are now back in the series.

The Hurricanes lead the series 2-1.
