LOS ANGELES — Evander Kane had two goals and an assist, Connor McDavid added a goal and two assists, Tyson Barrie scored the go-ahead goal in the third period and the Edmonton Oilers avoided elimination with a 4-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings in Game 6 of their first-round Western Conference series.

Kane has seven goals in the series, including three multi-goal games. The road team has won four times in the series.

Cody Ceci added a pair of assists and Mike Smith stopped 30 shots for the Oilers, who host the deciding game Saturday night in Edmonton.

Sean Durzi and Carl Grundstrom scored for Los Angeles, which was looking to wrap up its first series since defeating the New York Rangers in the 2014 Stanley Cup Final. Jonathan Quick made 33 saves.

Barrie gave the Oilers a 3-2 lead at 14:50 of the third with a snap shot inside the far post after getting the pass from Leon Draisaitl. Kane then added an empty-net goal with one minute remaining.

McDavid scored on a wraparound 1:40 into the game for his third goal of the series. It was the third-fastest goal by an Edmonton player when facing elimination.

Kane extended the lead with a redirect of Brett Kulak’s shot from the point at 1:50 of the second period. It was his first goal since he had a hat trick in the Oilers’ 8-2 victory in Game 3.

Rookie defenseman Durzi got Los Angeles on the board at 13:59 of the second period on the power play with his first goal of the postseason, a one-timer from the center point.

Grundstrom had the equalizer 29 seconds into the third with a slap shot over Smith’s blocker after getting the feed from Matt Roy.

Cubs’ Andrelton Simmons throws 45-mph strike against Reds

When baseball games go horribly wrong, fans can get treated to one of the most hilarious sights in sports: position players pitching.

That’s what happened on Thursday in Cincinnati. With the Cubs getting blown out by the Reds – who would go on to win 20-5 – Chicago shortstop Andrelton Simmons took to the mound in the eighth inning. And he managed to produce at least one bright spot.

Simmons, who has been clocked throwing 94 miles per hour in a game on a throw from shortstop, threw a pitch that was less than half that speed. His 44.9 mph pitch to Kyle Farmer was the slowest pitch in major league baseball history to generate a swinging strike, per Codify Baseball.

Simmons also had one pitch as slow as 39 mph, while also topping out on another at 79 mph.

Not all went well for Simmons, though, who gave up five runs on five hits and issued one walk in his inning of work. The loss dropped the lowly Cubs to fourth place in the NL Central and just four games ahead of the last-place Reds, who split the four-game series with Chicago.
