FIRST PERIOD

20:00:
Tonight's game is now underway.

16:40: Justin Schultz's shot from the slot just narrowly misses the mark on Luongo's blocker side.

14:46: Canucks get on the board first. Scrivens makes the initial save on a shot from the top of the left circle but Kellan Lain pounces on the rebound and his shot ricochets off Scrivens and just across the line. | VAN 1, EDM 0
7:31: Shots on goal were 8-4 for Vancouver with seven-and-a-half minutes to play in the opening period.

6:03: Ryan Jones drops the gloves with Kevin Bieksa. Jones gets Bieksa's jersey over his head which shortens the length of the fight.

2:52: The first power play of the game went to the Oilers after Zac Dalpe received two minutes for holding late in the period.

0.0: Shots on goal after 20 were 9-6 for the Canucks.

SECOND PERIOD

20:00:
Second period is now underway.

19:28: Ryan Smyth runs some interference on Dan Hamhuis and gets two minutes in the box. Vancouver heads to the power play for the first time.

14:25: A hooking penalty on Jannik Hansen gives Edmonton its second power play of the game.

12:01: Shortly after the Hansen penalty expires, Vancouver strikes to increase its lead to 2-0. Zack Kassian's shot beats Scrivens for the goal. | VAN 2, EDM 0
11:10: Edmonton goes right back on the man advantage following a penalty to Chris Higgins.

8:13: Nick Schultz gets two for cross-checking.

5:47: Hall was clipped with a high stick right off the faceoff by Kevin Bieksa, resulting in another Edmonton man advantage.

4:50: Eberle had the puck at the left circle and tried to shoot high but Luongo got his blocker up to knock it away.
0.0: Shots after 40 minutes were 22-17 for Vancouver.

THIRD PERIOD

20:00:
Third period has started.

12:51: Shots are 4-2 Vancouver so far in the third.

11:26: Hall heads to the bin, putting the Canucks on the PP.

9:18: Canucks call their 30-second timeout.

7:18: Jordan Eberle takes a high sticking penalty to give the Canucks their fourth power play of the game.

5:00: Oilers finally get on the board. After the puck just trickled wide following a Gagner redirect, Luongo remained out of the play just long enough for Jordan Eberle to put it into the open cage. | VAN 2, EDM 1
26.2: Oilers call their 30-second timeout.
