FIRST PERIOD

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

19:25: The first shot of the game goes in for the visitors as Nick Bonino scores off a give-and-go passing play in the Oilers defensive zone. Getzlaf and Vatanen with the helpers. | ANA 1, EDM 0


18:56: Matt Hendricks and Daniel Winnik drop the gloves! Hendricks lands a good punch before he's wrestled to the ice. Hendricks gets an extra 2 minutes for roughing, served by Eberle.

16:56: Eberle is out of the box and we're even strength.

15:17: Sam Gagner banks his 100th career NHL goal and it's a beauty. David Perron and Gagner had a 2-on-1 rush, Perron feeds Gagner and 89 goes forehand, backhand and finishes on goalie Jonas Hiller to tie things up. | EDM 1, ANA 1


09:08: The Ducks lead the Oilers in shots, 7-3 but the game remains tied 1-1.

08:45: Big toe save by Ben Scrivens on Corey Perry!
04:36: The wagon line getting physical out there but now Hendricks heads to the sin bin for tripping.

02:36: Penalty killed. The Ducks lead in shots 11-5, but the score remains tied 1-1 as we return to even strength.

01:02: The wagon (Matt Hendricks) almost scores on a wraparound but just misfires.

00:00: The first 20 minutes are history as Sam Gagner snagged his 100th career NHL goal and the Oilers and Ducks are all tied up. | EDM 1, ANA 1


SECOND PERIOD

20:00:
The 2nd period is underway at Rexall Place with the game tied at one.

17:43: Scrivens covers up a shot by Teemu Selanne.

16:19: The puck just slips by Ben Scrivens and flirts with the goal line but Taylor Hall saves the day, batting the puck out of danger.

14:48: Hall is out in front of Hiller waiting for a rebound that doesn't come as the goalie covers the puck.

13:23: Silfverberg is ROBBED by Ben Scrivens. What a save by the Oilers netminder.

09:38: The Oilers take the lead! Ryan Nugent-Hopkins finds Jordan Eberle backdoor on a delayed penalty and the home team goes ahead. | EDM 2, ANA 1

04:37: Scrivens almost makes a couple of miraculous saves again but it yielded one rebound too many as Patrick Maroon scores to even things up. | EDM 2, ANA 2

00:00: Another Hendricks scrap, this time with Belesky, will close out the second period as time will run out with the score tied, 2-2. 

THIRD PERIOD

20:00:
Third period is now underway.

19:17: Stephane Robidas gets sent off for holding, putting the Oilers on the power play early in the third.
 
14:38: Oilers announce that Tyler Pitlick has left the game with a leg injury and will not return. 

11:34: Oscar Klefbom whips a wrist shot from the slot that beats Jonas Hiller along the ice for his first career NHL goal. | EDM 3, ANA 2

5:58: Shots are 38-16 Anaheim as the period winds down.

4:30: Mathieu Perreault picks up the puck in the slot and fires it past Scrivens to get the Ducks back on even terms. | EDM 3, ANA 3


31.2: Shots are 44-20 Anaheim.

0.0: Regulation time comes to an end.

OVERTIME

5:00:
Fourth period is now underway.

4:39: Andrew Ference gets a penalty for hooking, giving Anaheim a chance to end it in OT on a four-on-three.

3:00: Petry swats the puck out of harm's way in the crease but it goes over the glass, resulting in a rare five-on-three overtime power play.

2:21: Ference gets out of the box and very shortly after, Perreault runs interference on Gordon in the slot. The teams are now playing three on three.

1:09: Ference tees up a blast from the high slot past Hiller to give the Oilers the win. | EDM 4, ANA 3
