Edmonton Oilers Rookie Nail Yakupov Scores With Five Seconds To Go (VIDEO)

After taking a terrible loss to the San Jose Sharks in their home opener, the Oilers were looking to bounce back against the defending champs, the Los Angeles Kings.

With the game on the line, Ralph Krueger put his trust in the Russian and he delivered. Check it out:

Nugent-Hopkins on the other hand reclaimed his stolen goal in OT and Edmonton took the W.
