Maroon received a match penalty in the second period after catching an unsuspecting Doughty with a hit to the head.

The Kings scored three goals on the ensuing five-minute major en route to a 5-0 win. Doughty returned to the game in the third period.

The Oilers are back in action Thursday when they host the Anaheim Ducks.
