Great character win for the Oil which will hopefully propel them to further heights.
I would argue that it was still biased in LA's favor. The instigating penalty could be argued either way based on Nolan dropping the gloves first, but the "with visor" addition was unnecessary. Brown and Kopitar both had very obvious dives in the game, and i saw multiple occurrences of smothering the puck after that initial call.
