Jeff Carter scored the go-ahead goal with 49.6 seconds remaining in regulation to lift the Los Angeles Kings over the Edmonton Oilers 3-1 on Tuesday night.

After the Oilers turned the puck over at the Kings blue line, Carter beat goalie Nikolai Khabibulin through the legs with a quick shot. Los Angeles then put the game away with an empty-net goal by Jarret Stoll.

Colin Fraser also scored for the Stanley Cup champions, who have won three of four. Jonathan Quick made 23 saves.

Sam Gagner had a goal for the Oilers and Khabibulin stopped 35 shots.
