08:23: Aggressive penalty killing benefits the stars as Ryan Garbutt smothers Denis Grebeshkov at the Oilers blue line and then goes on a breakaway, scoring on Bryzgalov. | DAL 1, EDM 0

03:41: Bryzgalov hit by Garbutt, spun around and around the post and he stays down. UPDATE: Bryzgalov up and skates off. Dubnyk in now.

00:04: Oilers tie it up with four seconds left in the period. Ales Hemsky scores his fifth goal of the season, right on the door step. | EDM 1, DAL 1
