The Edmonton Oilers lost Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs on a controversial penalty leading to a game-winning goal for the Los Angeles Kings. Game 3 did not see a penalty leading to an Edmonton loss, but the game ended controversially nonetheless.

Kings forward Trevor Moore scored the winning goal in overtime, handing Los Angeles a 2-1 series lead. However, the Oilers did not leave the bench and the referees eventually reviewed the play.

The referees were looking to see if there was a missed stoppage of play before the goal was scored. A scrum in the corner involving Kings forward Gabe Vilardi and Oilers blueliner Mattias Ekholm was the focus.

It appeared as if Vilardi's stick and the puck connected high in the air, which should have led to a stoppage. Replay review found no conclusive evidence, however, and LA's game-winning goal stood.

The call on the ice sent NHL fans into a frenzy on social media. Oilers fans, in particular, vented their frustration with the result of Friday night's review.

Non-Oilers fans also expressed their disagreement with the call. They also believed there was clear evidence of the puck touching Vilardi's stick, and a stoppage being missed on the ice.

The Oilers now have to battle back from a 2-1 series deficit in order to move on to the second round. Edmonton did defeat the Kings last year in seven games en route to the Western Conference Final.

The Oilers and Kings mix it up again on Sunday in Los Angeles for Game 4. Regardless of the outcome there, the series shifts back to Edmonton for Game 5 on Tuesday.
