Talbot helps Oilers beat Kings 2-1 to clinch playoff spot

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) The Edmonton Oilers are finally back in the playoffs.

Cam Talbot made 34 saves as Edmonton Oilers officially earned a postseason berth for the first time in 11 years with a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night.

"It's a special feeling tonight, especially seeing how passionate the crowd was and how excited they were," Edmonton forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins said. "We've had some tough years, but it's all worth it right now."
