12:51: Arcobello looked to have a clear breakaway to the net but Adam Pardy dove to swat the puck away from the Oilers centre.

12:10: Coming back the other way, Ben Scrivens made a quick right pad save on Adam Lowry.

7:27: The Jets skated down on a two-on-one with Mathieu Perreault and Evander Kane. Instead of dishing to Kane, Perreault paused and waited for Jacob Trouba to catch up. He then dished it back to the Jets defenceman who wired a wrist shot high past Scrivens for the goal. | WPG 1, EDM 0
