Edmonton Oilers forward Josh Archibald will have a hearing for clipping Winnipeg Jets defenseman Logan Stanley during Game 3 on Sunday, the NHL Department of Player Safety announced.

The play occurred midway through the third period with the Oilers leading 4-1. Archibald was assessed a two-minute minor for tripping and the Jets scored on the ensuing power play.

Winnipeg buried two more goals in the final 3:03 to force overtime before Nikolaj Ehlers scored his second of the game to give the Jets a commanding 3-0 series lead.

Head coach Dave Tippett said Archibald's infraction ultimately proved costly.

"The Archibald penalty was a huge turning point in the game," Tippett said, according to The Athletic's Daniel Nugent-Bowman.

He added: "In a playoff game like this, it's really disappointing to see some of the things we did to let them back in."

Edmonton will look to stave off elimination in Game 4 on Monday.
