13:33: Taylor Hall goes on the breakway, puts on a few shimmys and shakes but is gloved down by Luongo.

12:53: Martin Marincin fires a point shot and it's in clean! Brad Hunt and Eberle with the assists. | EDM 2, VAN 0



12:22: Boyd Gordon sets up David Perron who shoots a SHARP angle puck and it's in! Eberle with his third point of the night. | EDM 3, VAN 0



08:23: Sustained pressure by the Canucks but the Oilers escape, icing the puck after a scary few moments.

07:36: Mark Arcobello sends a pass from the corner to Jesse Joensuu who snipes it and Edmonton is off and running early. Hunt with the second assist. | EDM 4, VAN 0



06:54: The Canucks net their first goal of the night. A lot of traffic in the crease and the puck goes off of Dubnyk and in. Brendan Gaunce from Mike Santorelli and Zack Kassian.| EDM 4, VAN 1

SECOND PERIOD

20:00: Period two is underway in Vancouver.

18:16: Andrew Ference sprawls out on the ice to make a great defensive play on the puck.

15:56: Will Acton will sit in the sin bin for tripping.

14:17: Dubnyk with a big glove save on a power play breakaway by Jannik Hansen.

13:56: Did you see that!? Dubnyk makes some HUGE saves as the Acton penalty expires. Oilers even strength.

06:05: Darnell Nurse having a solid game. Follows up a good check with a great break up on 2-on-1.

03:26: Nurse blocks a shot with the body, then Gordon goes down to make a block and Nick Schultz saves a shot with his forehead! The Oilers kill off a Marincin interference penalty.

00:00: Some big saves, some blocked shots and a scoreless second period as the Oilers will take a three goal lead into the third period. | EDM 4, VAN 1

THIRD PERIOD

20:00:  We are underway in the third period!

14:05:  Dubnyk seeing a lot of looks from the Canucks attack but standing tall for the Oilers.

10:00:  Halfway through the third and the Canucks have taken the lead in shot, 24-22. Score remains the same.

06:13:  Dubnyk stops another one! The shots are almost dead even, 25-26 in the Canucks favour.

00:00:  The final horn sounds and the Oilers will leave Vancouver with a pre-season victory. | EDM 4, VAN 1
