FIRST PERIOD

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

19:06: Matt Hendricks hammered Minnesota's Nate Prosser into the boards in the corner of the Wild zone, shaking up the defenceman. Kyle Brodziak jumped in and dropped the gloves with Hendricks for a very brief bout. The two received two minutes each for roughing.

17:56: Zach Parise and Mikael Granlund rush up ice and Granlund finds an open spot in the slot. Parise feeds it to him and he deposits it into the wide open net to give Minnesota the lead. | MIN 1, EDM 0
13:00: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Keith Ballard engage in some pushing and shoving in front of the Wild net. The end result is a four-minute penalty for RNH and two for Ballard. Minnesota heads on the power play for the first time. 9:59: Brodziak gets sent off for slashing, giving the Oilers their first man advantage of the evening.

0.0: Shots on goal after one period were tied 6-6.

SECOND PERIOD

20:00:
The middle frame is now underway.

15:40: Shots just over four minutes into the second period are now 10-6 for Minnesota.

14:51: Nino Niederreiter gets sent off for hooking, sending the Oilers on their second power play of the night.

12:46: Yakupov threaded a pass over to Jordan Eberle but his quick shot was stopped by Wild netminder Darcy Kuemper who slid across to make the stop.

10:23: Stephane Veilleux blasts a shot from the left circle past Scrivens to double the Minnesota lead | MIN 2, EDM 0
9:38: Luke Gazdic and Clayton Stoner trade blows in a spirited fight very shortly after the goal. Gazdic re-energizes the crowd after landing a number of punches.

1:20: Erik Haula gets a delay-of-game penalty, resulting in Edmonton's third power play of the game.
0.0: Shots after 40 minutes were even once again, 16-16.

THIRD PERIOD

20:00:
Third period has started.

18:57: Yakupov blocks a Justin Schultz slap shot and skates to the bench in pain.

16:18: Yakupov goes out to test his sore foot, then returns to the bench.

10:31: Dany Heatley extends his reach to corral the puck and lift it over the outstretched pad of Scrivens. | MIN 3, EDM 0
10:15: Hendricks and Stoner look like they're about to fight but the officials break it up to the dismay of the Rexall Place faithful. Hendricks gets two minutes for boarding and two for roughing. Stoner gets two for roughing. Result is a Wild power play.

7:08: Ballard goes to the box, giving Edmonton a power play chance to break the goose egg.
